Book Review for DEAD WOMAN WALKING by Sharon Bolton
DEAD WOMAN WALKING by Sharon Bolton
☕ ☕ ☕ + 1/2
My Highly Caffeinated Thought: A quick moving thriller.
DEAD WOMAN WALKING is one of those books that you can fly through. The fast pace and carefully placed reveals of Bolton's mystery are what propelled me to see what happened next.
With flashbacks and the questions that are brought up in the present, the reader will have to piece together all the facets of this mystery along with the authorities. However, in my option, the best part of the story is the tensions and fear that radiates off the page from the the sole survivor.
If you are looking for a one-night read, DEAD WOMAN WALKING is worth taking a look at.
Reviewer Disclaimer: I received a copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
About the Book:
In Dead Woman Walking, from master of suspense Sharon Bolton, the sole survivor of a hot-air balloon crash witnesses a murder as the balloon is falling.
Just before dawn in the hills near the Scottish border, a man murders a young woman. At the same time, a hot-air balloon crashes out of the sky. There’s just one survivor. She’s seen the killer’s face – but he’s also seen hers. And he won’t rest until he’s eliminated the only witness to his crime. Alone, scared, trusting no one, she’s running to where she feels safe – but it could be the most dangerous place of all...
