Nine Lives

You are currently viewing Nine Lives


Chilling and unstoppable, this book just keeps on going – layering on the suspense, terror and more suspense, as nine characters are detailed, drawn and masterfully slipped into the swirling pond of our emotions, and we cannot help but learn – each of them has been chosen to die.

Nine names on a mysterious list, the author fiendishly orchestrating lives and loves and every-day worlds than ensure we will grow to care for many of them (and care about all of them), creating a story-line that is devilishly nail-biting, as nothing can be assumed, nothing at all, about who, if any one out of the bunch, will be left standing when all is said and done.

A comparison drawn by the author himself to Agatha Christieโ€™s โ€œAnd then there were noneโ€ is apt and fitting, and may or may not do this story justice. For this reader, the (double) twist ending, (which was unguessed), was both satisfying and a worthy end to this heart-racing ride.

I loved this book – the ominous pace that never lets up, refusing to pull any punches as the pages passed far too quickly for this reader in the quest to โ€œknowโ€ and solve the mystery.

Highly recommended for readers of the dastardly, this book is both a treat and a trial – be forewarned – once you start reading, you will not be able to put it down.

A great big thank you to the publisher @HarperCollinsCa for a #Netgalley ARC of this book. All thoughts presented are my own. #booksofhcc #thrillerbooks #bookreview #greatreads
