About The Book
A moment of pleasure leads to a deadly game of cat and mouse in this slick and suspenseful thriller.
Kit Finn meets handsome sculptor Matt Healy on a business trip and the two share a night of passion. They arrange a second date, but when Kit arrives at Matt’s apartment she is greeted by a stranger claiming he is the real Matt and that his identity was stolen.
Realising she has been duped Kit decides to put the encounter behind her. Shortly after, the police ask her to identify a man killed in a hit and run, carrying only her business card, and she is shocked to find the dead man is the person she knows as the genuine Matt Healy.
Kit fears she has become unintentionally embroiled in a sinister web of deceit. With no real evidence to take to police, Kit resolves to unravel the mystery herself. But can she do so before more lives, including her own, are put in danger?
The Wrong Man – My Review
The story starts by introducing us to the main character, Kit Finn. Kit has just come out of a long-term relationship, she decides to take a trip to the Florida Keys to rediscover herself after feeling like she had lost herself being in a relation ship. Kit vows to live life from now on care-free and without regrets, so when she meets Matt at her hotel, he invites her out for dinner, she decides to follow her new rules for life – be risky and have fun.
She later discovers the man she has spent the night with is in fact not Matt Healy as he had claimed to be – so who was he? Kit then finds herself right in the middle of a life threatening situation. The story follows Kit as she tries to work out what is going on, who she can trust and who was the man who claimed to be Matt Healy.
The story had me engrossed, I was almost as desperate to solve the mystery as Kit was. It was fast-paced and edgy, but with lots of plot twists throughout the story, The Wrong Man keeps you guessing all the way to the last page.
Overall, The Wrong Man is a really good read, a bit more light-hearted than the tradition crime/thriller genre, but I actually think I enjoyed it more so because of this aspect. It was good to get to get to know the characters a bit more and to figure out what was going on and who is Matt Healy!
