Book Information
Crime Fiction

Synopsis: In what appears to be just another weekday morning, Judy Hay travels to work on the London Underground. A tall man and a woman get on, but the woman travels only one stop. As the train pulls away, Judy feels compelled to watch the woman as she rushes away down the platform, turning briefly to glance back towards the train. A shock runs through Judy as she stares through the carriage window at the face of her double.
Moments later, the tall man collapses at Judy’s feet. He has been stabbed.
Ann Hammerton’s second novel is high-paced and atmospheric from the opening chapter. With an engrossing plot and twists and turns to enlighten the mind, the author’s words will engage the reader until the final page.

Review: This was a real page-turner for me. Once I started reading it, I couldn't wait to see what was going to happen next, and how it would all play out in the end. Poor Judy just kept finding more and more questions and not nearly enough answers--and when she did get answers they were life changing.

 The major characters are very well developed and realistic. The plot is a bit involved, but not to the point of losing the reader in the details.  I hope to read more from this author in the future.

**I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts and opinions are entirely my own.**

Rating: Four stars
