WE’RE ALL ONE MISTAKE FROM RUIN…
Dan has worked hard for the perfect life. He has a loving wife, beautiful kids, a fabulous home and is a successful businessman.
One afternoon Dan steps onto his usual train and sees the waitress who served him an hour earlier. It all seemed so normal, but it was the most dreadful mistake. Four stops later, Dan is a criminal who has lost everything. He’d only just met her, so why did she destroy him—and why did she say ‘Sorry’?
Dan battles through a web of lies and deceit to clear his name and win his life back, but first, he needs to find out who plotted his downfall.
I really enjoy Jem Tugwell’s writing, so when the opportunity to read Dishoboured entered my inbox, I quickly found a spot in my calendar. This is such an intriguing novel. It is a psycho thriller, and it is one fast-paced ride.
This is a tightly written and expertly plotted novel. It is quite refreshing and different than others I have read in this genre. One thing I appreciated was the amount of reader involvement that could take place. I felt like I was there. I felt like I had a hand in figuring out what was going on. Being whisked away is one of the reasons I read, so this was a huge plus for me.
Dan, the main character, is very real feeling. The way he handles the situations he is in, is plausible. Credibility and believability is not lacking in this novel at all.
This is quite a quick read, and probably my only “dislike” is that the novel ended. I just wanted to read more.
Don’t miss this one.
