Sibel Hodge

I haven't read much of Sibel Hodge's considerable output but what I've read I've really enjoyed. This dark psychological thriller kept me glued.


My review -

Maya’s heart and whole life are shattered when her partner Jamie is found hanged in a local beauty spot. She is fairly sure he intended to propose that evening. The verdict is suicide but Maya can’t let it go. She discovers later that Jamie had been brought up in a children’s home. She also finds out what had been going on there, and that some of the people responsible are still holding down lucrative and responsible jobs. It begins to appear that Jamie was about to blow the whistle and has been silenced.

This is a really gripping thriller and is both gruesome and dark in places. We accompany Maya and Jamie’s friend, Mitchell, on their journey to seek justice for Jamie and all those he was going to champion. It looks an impossible task because the perpetrators seem to be – untouchable. If you’re not squeamish about the subject matter you’ll find this book really engrossing. I enjoyed it immensely.
