#PUBLICATIONDAY PUSH | The Girl in the Tunnel – Deirdre Palmer @DLPalmer_Writer @rararesources @gilbster1000 #amreading #bookblogger #bookreview

London. A January night. Commuters surge into the Underground. Ellen Randall recognises a man standing close to the platform edge: Matt Leyton, her sister Rosanna’s married lover. The man who’s playing a game as old as time. A red-hot flash of uncontrollable anger propels Ellen to his side. The train approaches. Seconds later, Matt has gone.

Carl Teviot is convinced Ellen isn’t a killer, even though he’s only just met her – or rather, found her, huddled in a sleeping bag in an abandoned Tube station: a ghost station. He can’t leave her there, alone, and in danger.

But rescuing her from the tunnel is only the beginning…

Review:

The Girl in the Tunnel by Deirdre Palmer was an interesting read. I don’t think I’d put this in the ‘edge of your seat’ genre. More of a slow burn. I do like how the backstory slowly infiltrates the plot and doesn’t come rushing in, all at once.

There are some twists and turns that keep the book compelling. This is a steady, slow-paced, but easy to read book. I enjoyed the bit of mystery and confusion, as it added some intrigue to the plot.

The characters are consistent. I enjoyed the writing style, as each character had a unique voice. Connecting to the characters helps drive a plot forward, and that happens here.

I was missing some of the suspense that I thought I’d find here. However, it is still a solid novel, with great writing and interesting characters. I’d definitely recommend giving this book a read.

4/5☆


Deirdre lives in Brighton, on the south coast of England. She writes women’s and psychological fiction under her own name, and as Zara Thorne. Becoming an author was a childhood dream, although she didn’t have much of a clue as to what it meant. But fast forward several years – okay, many years – and the dream showed signs of becoming reality. She entered the Mail on Sunday Novel Competition, twice, and came fourth, twice. So there was the incentive to complete her first novel, Remarkable Things, which was published by Crooked Cat and shortlisted for the Romantic Novelists’ Association Joan Hessayon Award. The Girl in the Tunnel is Deirdre’s 14th book.
