The Blurb:

Sometimes, it’s not easy to tell the good guys from the bad …

Freelance journalist, Anna Morris, is struggling to make a name for herself, so she’s delighted to attend a launch event for a hip young artist at her friend Seb’s gallery.

But an exclusive interview isn’t all Anna comes away with. After an encounter with the enigmatic Darrick Farron, she is flung into the shady underground of the art scene – a world of underhand dealings, missing paintings and mysterious deaths …

Seb is intent on convincing Anna that Darrick is up to no good but, try as she might, she can’t seem to keep away from him. And as she becomes further embroiled, Anna begins to wonder – can Seb’s behaviour be explained away as the well-intentioned concern of an old friend, or does he have something to hide?

My Review:

Intrigue, romance and suspense in a book that has you constantly turning the pages to find out what happens next. What else can you ask for?

Anna Morris, struggling freelance journalist unsure of what she really wants to do with her life, meets the enigmatic Darrick Fallon at an exhibition hosted by her old university friend, Seb. As Darrick Fallon pulls on both her heart-strings and her sanity, she finds her loyalties torn and the questions mounting as she tries to come to terms with her past and its effects on a mystery firmly affecting the present…

This book manages the perfect balance between showing relationships stealthily creeping along and having the plot canter at speed. The loyalties that old friends demand and new ones seek are rawly and realistically portrayed. And the way the butterfly effect rears its ugly head is scarily believable. Loved it!
