Now this is one great psychological thriller! Of course, I expect exciting stories from Cari Hunter, but I think Unbreakable may be one of her best yet.
This tale is definitely full of intrigue and action. A doctor (Grace Kendal) is kidnapped at the very beginning of the book by a mysterious and obviously badly injured woman (Elin Breckenridge). Grace is compelled to help Elin, but by doing so, she becomes a part of a dangerous nightmare with Elin. We not only see the story through Grace and Elin’s eyes, but also through the eyes of Detective Sergeant Safir Faris. In fact Safir, her girlfriend Kami, and her work partner Suds are very important secondary characters. Through Safir we get to see the police investigation of the crimes as they are occurring. This actually works out really well, and gives the reader a more complete view of what is happening.
I was captivated by this novel from the very first page, and could not put it down until the very end. There is constant, sometimes heart-stopping action and intrigue in these pages, and even a bit of romance to add to the emotional drama. This book has a special place in my favorite books list, and I highly recommend it to all mystery and intrigue lovers.
I received an ARC from NetGalley and Bold Strokes Books for an honest review.
