I have been very excited to share this review with you today as I absolutely loved this collection of short stories!
An unmissable collection for fans of fast-paced reads. Three action-packed books in a single volume.
The Forbidden Room:
You and your partner are looking forward to a romantic break in the rugged landscape of West Cork, on the south west coast of Ireland. Cliff walks, seafood dinners and spectacular views of the Atlantic Ocean. But a storm is brewing. Your car breaks down in the middle of nowhere. There’s no phone signal. So you start walking. You search for help. And you find it. At an isolated house, a family gives you shelter… but something is wrong. The husband has a head wound. The son is too terrified to speak. And the wife forbids you from going near her other son’s bedroom.
Lindsey O’Reilly is at home, cleaning up after dinner, when she sees armed police swarming over her garden wall. There’s a noise downstairs. A knock on the door. She opens up, but it’s not the police. It’s the man they’re chasing. A stone-cold killer. Now he’s inside…
Hit and Run:
Jake Whelan ought to be happy. He has a devoted girlfriend and a job at a prestigious law firm, where he expects to make partner. Yet he’s crippled by terrifying panic attacks and a suspicion that his life isn’t as it should be. When Jake is passed over for promotion, he thinks his day can’t get any worse. He’s wrong. A terrible accident is about to change his life forever.
Wow! I just loved this collection from Alan Gorevan! All three books kept me on the edge of my seat, I couldn’t put them down.
The characters in each book are very well portrayed and even although these are short stories, we know enough about each character to make them vivid and real. The stories flow well individually, but as a collection they work extremely well together. Each one is fast-paced and exciting, keeping you gripped from the very first paragraph. Gorevan is certainly very talented!
As I was writing this review I tried very hard to pick a favourite, however there are so many positives about each that is really was completely impossible. Alan Gorevan was a new author to me although he is most certainly one I will now be recommending to friends.
A fantastic thriller collection that is a must have on everyone’s TBR list!
