One Last Secret by Adele Parks
In my opinion...
For some very strange reason this review has lived in my drafts for a long time & only now, as the latest Adele Parks novel is about to be unleashed, have I realised that I didn't comment on the previous one. Unacceptable.
Sorry Ms Parks!
To be honest , how many more superlatives can I add to the already full pot? This author is deservedly so popular, as novel after novel she writes something different, unpredictable & challenging.
Certainly I did find the subject matter rather challenging & very uncomfortable. I suspect Ms Parks has led a very colourful life as she always gets under the skin of her story whether it be gambling, addiction or the life of a sex worker- or, more likely, just extremely good at research. She hooks you, you're fascinated, dragged in & off you go.
As always, the story moves at great pace with twists that make it hard to put down. If you haven't read it yet, set some time aside, read it & then put 17 August in your diary ready for this year's novel 'Just Between Us', I can't wait!
