Blog Tour Stop! Twisted by Steve Cavanagh
I am not going to lie - this was a book that I actively had to stop myself from reading too early, in my little TBR queue; it just sounded SO GOOD, and SO UP MY ALLEY that I could not HELP but want to tackle it ASAP. Turns out, I was very, very right for thinking that way, because this book is TERRIFIC.
This book is so delightfully unique and as someone who reads as many thrillers as I do, finding unique in format, story or outcome is a bit like finding the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. There is a puzzle within a puzzle in this one, and where it takes you is legitimately un-guessable. It is like Steve decided to take a bit of the piss out of the entire genre, but manages to do so while still creating the most captivating psychological thriller you could hope for. Personally, I read this genre because I love to escape into a story (so anything really goes for me) and this book had me up well into the wee hours of the night scrambling to get to the end, because let’s face it, I wasn’t going to be able to sleep with this one dangling.
NOW here is the thing about this book - you cannot know any details, hints or have any ideas of what is to come when you start it. If you did, it would most certainly take away from the experience as a whole, so the above is as much as I can say without being a terrible reviewer and taking that experience away from you. Does this add to the mystery of the book? Probably. Is that part of the perfection of this book? Absolutely.
What you need to know as a reader, is that this book is mind blowingly, unpridicatably, impossible to put down mayhem, and if you want a thriller to mix up your reading slump, THIS IS THE BOOK FOR YOU. I don’t think this will be the book for everyone, but this book is going to have readers talking, mark my words. I loved every single page, and quite frankly, I can’t wait to read it a second time.
Get a copy of this one friends, and then clear your schedule, shut off your phone and prepare to get lost in the thriller of the summer that will leave you reeling.
BEFORE YOU READ THIS BOOK
I WANT YOU TO KNOW THREE THINGS:
1. The police are looking to charge me with murder.
2. No one knows who I am. Or how I did it.
3. If you think you've found me. I'm coming for you next.
After you've read this book, you'll know: the truth is far more twisted...
