To Kill A Shadow Review

I loved the beginning of this story. A great pace, plot and perfect tension to read on.

A man, nervous for his life is being followed for information he is carrying. Julia Castleton, a former Times Journalist is invited by the man to meet. He is desperate to pass on his secrets.

On discovering a body, Julia quickly decides to follow this story. As an activist blogger, she is influential but her involvement soon brings a target to herself.

With a young child, Julia refuses her father’s support so has to use her sister as a step in to look after her child whilst she investigates. At times Julia finds herself in tricky and dangerous situations and I felt for her in each situation.

Her character is something to be admired, although she would struggle to see that herself. Always looking at her sister in awe and jealousy, Julia is brave, reckless, stubborn and intelligent. I enjoyed the contrast between the two sisters.

To Kill A Shadow is a cleverly written thriller that had me captivated throughout.
