Escape with the gripping, twisty new thriller from the Sunday Times bestselling author of One of the Girls

Wish you were here? Think again . . .

Maggie, Liz, Helena & Joni. Old friends bound by history, adventures, old secrets.And now, bound by murder.They lace up their hiking boots for the adventure of a lifetime in the Norwegian wilderness: a place of towering mountains, glass-like lakes, log cabins and forests stolen from a fairytale.It’s the perfect place to lose yourself – until a broken body is found at the bottom of a ravine.Somewhere out there, someone knows exactly why a woman has died. And in this deep, dark wilderness, there’s a killer on the trail . . .

This is the third book I have read written by Lucy Clarke and I actually liked this book. Each of her books are based in somewhere and this rime the Hike is based in Norway. Four friends Liz, Maggie, Helena and Joni go on a hiking trail in Norway. The four friends learn that on the similar trail another girl named Karin disappeared and Karin looks like Maggie. The four friends suddenly becomes stranded in the trail.

I like the setting of the book. The descriptions of mountains and other sceneries made as a reader feel like you are in Norway with the characters, there’s a hint of suspense and the author manage to create an eerie suspense in the book. There wasn’t much twists or turns, the ending seemed to be harried but nonetheless I enjoyed reading this thriller much. Looking forward to read more books by Lucy Clarke

Worth four stars

Many thanks to NetGalley and Harper Collins for ARC. This review is based on my honest opinion only.

Sunday Times bestseller, Lucy Clarke, writes from a beach hut, using the inspiration from the wild south coast to craft her stories. Her debut novel, THE SEA SISTERS, was a Richard & Judy Book Club pick, and she has since published A SINGLE BREATH, THE BLUE/NO ESCAPE, LAST SEEN, YOU LET ME IN, and THE CASTAWAYS, which was a Waterstones Thriller of the Month. Lucy’s seventh novel, ONE OF THE GIRLS, is ‘an electric, sun-soaked thriller’, released in May 2022.

Lucy’s books are published in twenty territories. THE BLUE, is currently being filmed for a major international TV series for Paramount+ and will be on screens in 2023.

Lucy is a passionate traveller and fresh air enthusiast. She’s married to a professional windsurfer and, together with their two children, they spend their winters travelling and their summers at home by the sea.
