I have read Fiona Barton’s novels before and the fact that this was yet another brilliant read came as no surprise.
Alex and Rosie, who have just finished their ‘A’ levels, go off to Thailand for what Alex has planned a mainly cultural trip. Her original travelling companion, Mags, pulled out at short notice and Alex doesn’t know Rosie as well, in fact as it turns out, not very well at all.
The teenagers go missing and Alex’s mum contacts a journalist, Kate Waters, as well as the police, including Bob Sparkes who is having his own personal issues. Kate and Bob have been in contact before and there is mutual respect between them.
When the bodies of two females are found in what the local police call an accident Kate flies out with her newspaper to unravel the story. She finds out much more than she had planned.
Thank you to NetGalley, Random House UK and Fiona Barton for my ARC of ‘The Suspect’ in return for my honest review.
Excellent Read. Highly recommended.
