Her dream job just became her worst nightmare…
My name is Rose, and I work for one of the country’s biggest newspapers. I was the Day Editor. Will Frost was the Night Editor.
When I got to the office, Will had already left. When I left, Will arrived. We were two sides of the same coin.
Last week, Will disappeared from floor 34 without a trace. Now I am the Night Editor.
And I have a feeling I’m next.
Rose was a day editor at a leading newspaper and Will Froz was a night editor. Will Frost works on the 34th floor of the building. Then one night, Will Frost disappears without a trace and Rose, who had been dreaming of getting the night shift, agrees to take the Will’s position…only that her dream job eventually turns into a nightmare.
This book deals with some sensitive issues such as sexual assault and being drugged.
I will start with the ones I like with this book
–unreliable narrator (can you really trust the protagonist) which would make a psychological thriller good
–plot of the story
–realistic parts on how dealing with rape trauma and panic attacks.
–knowledge about career
Now the ones I didn’t like
–the book itself is a slow burn which is for me not a good thing.
–don’t really understand the ending at all–maybe it’s just me but I am confused at the ending.
–too many mindless and useless conversations which spoilt the book
Overall, this is a dark twisty thriller and worth 3.5 stars.
Many thanks to Netgalley and the publisher for the ARC. The review is based on my honest opinion only.
