How far would you go to protect a secret?

How far would you go to expose a lie?

Will Fletcher seems to have it all – perfect job, perfect life. Then in one act of extreme violence, his world is turned upside down.

A bungled assassination attempt on a London street uncovers a disturbing conspiracy fuelled by organised crime and political ambition. Now, Will finds himself on the run, pursued by a dangerous enemy who will stop at nothing to protect his employer’s past.

The only way to stop the chain of events is to follow a trail of clues that lead to the heart of British politics.

With the date for the UK General Election only days away and the killers closing in, Will is running out of time to deliver his own version of vigilante justice and expose the corruption. As the web of lies and deceit unravels, Will knows the answer’s out there.

All he has to do is look closer.

Everyone has secrets. Everyone lies.

My review

I think this is Rachel´s best book yet, I was thrilled to receive an email from her with the offer of an ARC of her new book, Look Closer. Thanks very much.

This is a fast paced political thriller, 5 days in the life of Will Fletcher with loads of excitement, thrills, nonstop action, some twists and turns I didn´t see, lies, corruption, politics, secrets. Oooh it is good.

I enjoyed Will´s character, he is a good person and a well written character in the 3rd person. There is little background information on Will, Amy and Erin until the end where just enough is revealed about Will on the whole which is key to understanding the novel. It finishes with all the questions answered, leaving nothing unturned.

If you have previously read any of Rachel´s books White Gold, Under Fire, Before Nightfall this is a similar style, but better overall, a more mature writing. I look forward to reading more of her novels in the future.
