The Victim by Gillian Jackson
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Her husband is dead. Was it an accident?
After years of a clear case of domestic abuse – her husband is dead by her own hand. The murder scene screams self-defense. But the evidence points to a real victim of the Rivers family.
From the very first pages, I was on to the notorious Caron Rivers. Great idea of the plot, however while reading the novel I didn’t feel the note of intrigue. From the first chapter, we clearly see the villain of the novel and learn more about her background throughout the book. Hence no shocking twists were revealed by the end of the novel. The story lucked mystery and thrill, although I saw great potential. I’ve read many reviews that praised the author’s previous books and said that – I would absolutely give it another shot and read more of Gillian Jackson’s novels. Thank you Netgalley and Bloodhound Books publisher for this free and advanced copy of the novel.
