Today iI’m delighted to be taking part in the blog tour for The Curfew. My review is written with thanks to Tracy Fenton for inviting me on the tour and to the publisher for my copy of the book.
Your son said he was home. WHY DID HE LIE?
It’s time to preorder the brand new up-all-night thriller from the Sunday Times bestselling author of Richard and Judy pick The Holiday, now a major TV Drama.
I should have known something was wrong. I should have sensed it. Felt it in the air, like the build-up of pressure before a thunderstorm, that heavy, loaded calm.
Andy and Laura are good parents. They tell their son Connor that he can go out with friends to celebrate completing his exams, but he must be home by midnight.
When Connor misses his curfew, it sets off a series of events that will change the lives of five families forever.
Because five teenagers went into the woods that night, but only four came out. And telling the truth might mean losing everything…
WHAT WOULD YOU DO?
The Curfew is the second of TM Logan’s novels that I have read and I enjoyed this one just as much. It begins with the fairly ordinary scenario of a teenage boy missing his curfew and leaves us to consider what we might do in a similar situation as the story gathers pace and the lives of the characters spiral out of control. I found it very difficult to put down!
Our narrator is Andy and it is his son who misses the titular curfew that sparks the situation for the whole novel. As we only see things from Andy’s point of view (with a few short chapters from other characters) we are left wondering who is really responsible for what happened that night and it is a mystery that kept me hooked until the very end. Andy’s relationship with Connor feels very authentic and well observed and this is a strength of Logan’s writing.
Connor and Andy are not the only strong characters in The Curfew. The relationships between the teenagers also feel very genuine and this makes the story incredibly believable. I must mention Harriet, who is absolutely incredible and I love the way her quirky personality shines through the pages.
I desperately wanted to find the answers to all my questions as I was reading and there are plenty of twists and turns before we get there. The novel is very tense and I enjoyed it from start to finish.
The Curfew is available from Amazon.
