My Review Summary: A gripping, edge of your seat tale


My son has been taken. And I’ve been given a choice…Kill a patient on the operating table. Or never see him again.The man lies on the table in front of me. As a surgeon, it’s my job to save him.As a mother, I know I must kill him.You might think that I’m a monster.But there really is only one choice.I must get away with murder.Or I will never see my son again.



It has been a while since I read a Thriller and when I saw this come up on Random Things Tours I had to put my name down for it! I wasn’t disappointed. It was an exciting read and I was right there with the characters willing everything to be ok. 

The writing was gripping from the beginning and carried on right through to the end. There was an excellent pace to the story and I loved the way that we got to see the story build up from 3 different points of view. There was a good mix of storytelling and conversation, with close detail really only going towards the surgical procedures. 

The story was split into two parts which were then made up of short chapters. It was these short chapters which gave the story it’s fast pace. With all the tension and emotion I don’t think I could have handled longer chapters! It has been a long time since I have felt the urge to skip through and see that the characters would be ok!

Each chapter was dedicated to a character and I enjoyed seeing the story develop through the different characters’ eyes. I liked that at the beginning it was only Anna’s chapters that had the count down to the surgery. After that there was just dates and times. The date and time signatures of the chapters was very specific and something that added to the suspense. There was also a lot of tension and emotion throughout. Sometimes a chapter would be split to make it longer and this served to increase the suspense. 

The characters were excellent. Whilst some of the characters were quite cold you were told the reasons behind their thoughts and actions and you were taken it by it. I felt sorry for them all at some points in the story and rooted for a happy ending. I was on the edge of my seat for a lot of the book wondering what was going to happen next to them! It was definitely a morally grey storyline.

Lastly the settings. As the book was mainly based on conversation and narration the settings were secondary. The description of the procedures taking place in the hospital were the most detail that you got, but generally you really felt as if you were there with the characters.

Overall an excellent book that I struggled to put down. Truly emotional, edge of the seat stuff. I highly recommend to Thriller fans!

⭐Rated 5/5⭐
