The Secret by Katerina Diamond – review.



Can you keep a secret? Your life depends on it…

Bridget Reid has a secret, one that could get her killed… If she can escape the man who is keeping her locked in a basement bedroom.

DS Imogen Grey is good at keeping secrets – truths she’d never reveal to her colleagues at Exeter Police. She worked hard to get where she is – she nearly died for it. Now her past is catching up with her…

As DS Grey and her partner DS Adrian Miles search for Bridget, they uncover a terrifying web of abuse, betrayal and murder. And they realise that some secrets are better left buried…

My thoughts:

This is the first book I’ve read in the DS Grey and DS Miles series and I thoroughly enjoyed it. It’s not the first in the series but this didn’t matter one bit.

The chapters flit between past and present, and the story is told from multiple perspectives. This is a dark, brutal, gritty read and not for anyone who prefers cosy. Be warned, this book had me flinching at times but that definitely added to the tension.

I eagerly lapped up the pages, racing to read more from Bridget’s perspective. The book starts with a bang, introducing her dire situation to us at breakneck speed, taking me as the reader by surprise, and I really felt for her. There is more than one compelling thread running through this book, but I’ll say no more. Fab and fast read!
