This review is written with thanks to Pigeonhole for the opportunity to read and review No Secrets.
THEY BELIEVE HIS LIES. SHE KNOWS THE TRUTH.
You can’t lie to Izzy Lambert. Her highly developed empathic abilities allow her to read people’s emotions with terrifying accuracy – and consequences. As a child her insights sparked her parents’ divorce. As an adult she avoids getting too close to people for fear of what she might learn.
But now young girls are going missing in her town. The police have no suspects but, seeing her old school caretaker interviewed on the news about the story, Izzy comes to a chilling realisation: he knows where the missing girls are. When the police won’t take her seriously despite the lives at stake, she will risk everything to uncover the truth.
This is my second David Jackson novel and I think it’s now time to officially declare myself a fan! No Secrets had all the perfect elements of a psychological thriller and more! There is so much danger and tension in these pages I did not want to stop reading when the staves ended, especially as they always seemed to end on cliffhangers!
It’s hard not to like the protagonist, Izzy, as she has a heart of gold. Her empathic personality is a really interesting aspect of the story and it’s explored really well. However, she does make some really strange decisions and it’s difficult to believe that a reasonably intelligent adult would do some of the things she does. Obviously, if she were perfectly sensible, it would be a very short book and I think Jackson strikes just the right balance to keep readers hooked!
I was intrigued to see how the ending of No Secrets would play out and I was completely gripped! There were several moments I was holding my breath wondering what would happen next, hoping the right person would be caught.
No Secrets is available from Amazon.
