I'm travelling alone
A tense and fast-paced thriller that is full of twists and turns and really keeps the reader hooked right from the beginning. This is a debut novel for this author and I really can't wait to read the 2nd in the series. I didn't suspect the ending and I really enjoyed the way the story unfolded. Well worth a read!
