An Eye for an Eye is one of those rare novels that pairs character and electric pacing, and from the very first page, it propels the reader into a twisted, gripping tale that’s hard to resist.
DI Kate Young is the best of the best. But she’s been off her game for a while, and her colleagues don’t seem to understand what she’s going through. She has been put on leave after a bad judgment call on board a high-speed train that almost placed an innocent civilian in harm’s way. She’s not gone for long, though, as a ruthless killer has struck the heart of the quiet local community, and if the police are going to stop the brutal murderer in their tracks, they can’t have Kate sitting on the sidelines.
Soon it becomes clear that there’s more at play than this case. Those around her seem to be hiding something, and as they begin to pull away from her, she senses that she’s close to the truth. I found myself glued to the page, Kate falling deeper down the rabbit hole with every scene. And as the end came into focus, I realized something: I’d boarded the moving train, been swept up in the suspense and mystery, and after it was already too late, saw the truth for myself.
This train isn’t stopping.
