NOW AVAILABLE GREAT PSYCHOLOGICAL THRILLERThe setting for the first part of the novel the Antarctic specifically the island of South Georgia is a character onto itself Ms Bolton made me feel so in the moment while I was reading this It definitely feels as though it transported me into a different place Sounds corny I know but that’s how it felt Here’s an example of the incredible descriptions of a scene while they were on ice “The ice mountain leans towards them gravity winning the battle with momentum and the sea begins to churn The new iceberg topples finds its new horizontal gravity and a wall of turuoise water thirty metres high surges towards them” YikesSo many reviews have already been written about the main story so I’ll keep it short and leave the rest to your imaginationWe first meet Felicity a well known glaciologist who is currently stationed in South Georgia The story is divided into parts South Georgia Present Day is Part One She is worried about the last tourist boat that is arriving There is someone in her life that she is very afraid of and she worries that he will find her here even so far from the mainland If her worst fears are confirmed she has a planCambridge 9 months earlier We will meet the other players in this thriller of a ride; Joe Grant Felicity’s psychotherapist working hard to unravel Felicity’s myriad of symptoms and fears She feels she is constantly being watched she thinks someone has been in her home and finds a diary that she doesn’t remember writing Joe himself has just recovered from a knife wound sustained from an attack by one of the homeless people Ezzy Sheeran whom he works with pro bono Much occurs in Cambridge but I will leave that for you to discoverJoe’s mother Delilah is a police woman and has been following her son’s cases closely Their relationship sometimes seems a little too close to be healthy but for the most part they seem to be able to run through ideas together helping Joe and the policeIn the last part of the novel we are whisked back to South Georgia where an incredibly feverish search is on to find Felicity She was last known to be headed to Bird Island a place even remote than South Georgia The weather turns extremely harsh and with multiple people searching by land and sea there is never a slow moment Even in the harbor master’s office “Joe can see a waterfall like a silver ribbon slicing a snow tipped summit in half and the rusting carcass of a wrecked steam ship stranded in the bay On the northern horizon a berg lies like a fallen mountain and the air above it is alive with seabirds there is an eardrum splitting cacophony of noise the bird screams and the grunting of seals”This novel got it all right for me An intricately woven plot great characters that are believable tension and fear that never uits and an atmosphere that is transformative This book had me from the first few pages and just when I thought I had it all figured out nope wrong I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a fast paced twisty thriller well written and exciting I am still googling South Georgia and the photos that I find are incredible and fascinating I highly recommend taking a tour of where the story takes placeI received an ARC of this novel from the publisher through NetGalley
