My Review:

My thanks go to the Publisher and Netgalley for the chance to read this book.

Wow Wow what an awesome read.

I have heard about this author and up until now, I have not; read anything by him.  Now I will be looking for more of his book.  This book had me at the edge of my seat and I could not put it down.

Whose name would you give? Come on we all have that one person right?

What would you do if you were offered a deal; make one phone call, just 29 seconds, say one name and that person would disappear forever. Would you do it? Could you live with yourself after? That’s a decision that Sara had to make.  Sarah is a Ph.D. working at a local and prestigious England university under a male department head who is a lascivious sexual predator.

One day, Sarah is driving and she spots a situation and comes to the aid of a young girl who she perceives to be in danger. She reports this to the Police but they find no further evidence of wrong doing so that investigation fades away. But she knows what she saw and she can’t understand it. Then, one day, her actions are rewarded. It appears that she has done right by a very powerful man who insists that he is now in her debt and he gives her a rather interesting, one time only, time limited offer; an offer that could really help her. An offer she initially refuses to even contemplate but then, on reflection, along with more frustration, one she accepts. But things are never as easy as they seem. Could this be too good to be true?  What would you do?  There were a few twists and turns, that I had no idea where things were going and how it would end up. And a few times I was getting annoyed with some of the decisions Sarah made. But have to say I was quite surprised and happy (sorry hope that is not a spoiler).

Again I have to say this book was awesome.
