Fast-paced thriller with heart
Reviewed in the United States on January 15, 2019
I really enjoyed this, particularly the mother-daughter relationship. A woman survives a private plane crash but is presumed dead. Her estranged mother refuses to give up faith that she’s still alive, and sets out unravelling what happened. The narrative jumps back and forth between mom & daughter as we learn that after surviving, the daughter is now running for her life and trying to rescue her mother from the conspiracy that put her on the plane to begin with.
It’s good from the start, but it really picks up in the middle and races to the end. My only issue was it changes from present to past tense between narrators despite being in the same time line. This was likely a stylistic choice, but I found it a bit jarring at times. Also, as a San Diegan, I really enjoyed the local descriptions!
