This is the first book by TM Logan that I have read, despite having had a few of his other novels recommended to me. If the others are anywhere near as good as The Catch I am in for a treat.
The Catch begins with someone describing a murder, but the reader is not sure of the identity of either the victim or the murderer. The novel is structured in a way which invites us to guess as we go along, and I was always changing my mind as to which character was the most dangerous and which ones I was able to trust. The effect of this is enhanced by the fact that each chapter is written from the viewpoint of a different character – so eventually we hear from all of them. I enjoyed trying to put the pieces of the puzzle together.
Each character is incredibly well drawn, in that, on the surface at least, they are characters who are recognisable in most people’s lives. This made it even more difficult to know who to believe.
The Catch is a really tense novel and the ending in particular had me chewing my nails! There are so many twists and turns that I could not keep my eyes off the page.
The Catch is available from Amazon.
