Best known for her Rizzoli & Isles series Tess Gerritsen is one of my favourite authors at the minute in the crime genre. Call After Midnight is one of her stand alones novels which I would recommend for anyone wanting an introduction to her work but not wanting to risk getting hooked on a new series at the minute.
Out of the blue newly wed Sarah Fontaine receives a phone call that will change her life forever. That one call not only leads her to discover her whole relationship has been a scam but will take her on a journey but physically from country to country but emotionally as she struggles to discover the truth about the man she thought loved her but has now placed her life in danger.
The book is a mix of crime and spy thriller genres and at times can seem a little implausible at first glance yet when you look deeper it is apparent how easy it would be for a unscruplous person to drag you into an intrigue without your knowledge.
Gerritsen’s characters as always are well written and draw you to them, you won’t always like them all the time infact occasionally you will wish you could reach into the page and deliver a resounding slap to them but they will engage you and ultimately you will be rooting for them.
I am avoiding saying to much as this is one book I highly recommend and would not want to spoil it.
Rating 5 out of 5 stars
