This book was on my waiting list. I seem to fluctuate between historical fiction and books that involve crimes. This one, 29 Seconds, by T. M. Morgan is definitely in the crime genre.
Remember how I’ve said I need to be able to relate to a character to truly love a book. Well, I had trouble relating to the main character. You’ll read much of this in the overview of the book so I don’t think I’m giving too much away. So Sarah is given the option to eliminate one person from her life. She chooses someone. There is no way I could ever do that. I’ll admit there have been people I have had trouble giving the benefit of the doubt to but never did a wish anyone dead. Never have I wished some injured. Never would I ever have or suggest someone be killed. Because of that, I have trouble “liking” the book. I hope that makes sense.
Here is what Amazon has to say:
“The sensational new page-turning thriller from the number 1 bestselling author of LIES. Perfect for fans of FRIEND REQUEST by Laura Marshall and I AM WATCHING YOU by Tessa Driscoll. Give me one name. One person. And I will make them disappear . . . When Sarah rescues a young girl in trouble, she expects nothing in return. But her act of bravery puts a powerful and dangerous man in her debt. He lives by his own brutal code, and all debts must be repaid – in the only way he knows how. He offers Sarah a way to solve a desperate situation with her intolerable boss. A once-in-a-lifetime deal that will make all her problems disappear. No consequences. No comeback. No chance of being found out. All it takes is a 29 second phone call. BECAUSE EVERYONE HAS A NAME TO GIVE. DON’T THEY? Praise for T. M. Logan, the master of the everyman thriller ‘Assured, compelling, and hypnotically readable – with a twist at the end I guarantee you won’t see coming’ Lee Child ‘A tense and gripping thriller’ B A Paris, bestselling author of BEHIND CLOSED DOORS ‘So gripping I genuinely found it hard to put down’ KL Slater, bestselling author of BLINK ‘A compelling, twisty page-turner, and that’s the truth’ James Swallow, bestselling author of NOMAD”
Amazon readers give the book 4.3 stars. I think I am going to go with 4.1. I finished the book but still had trouble relating to ever thinking I would be part of choosing anyone to dye.
