#BookReview - Alex by Pierre Lemaitre (translated by Frank Wynne)

 SHE'S RUNNING OUT OF TIME

Alex Prévost - kidnapped, beaten, suspended from the ceiling of an abandoned warehouse in a wooden cage - is in no position to bargain. Her abductor's only desire is to watch her die. 

HE WANTS ONLY ONE THING

Apart from a shaky police report, Commandant Camille Verhoven has nothing to go on: no suspect, no leads. If he is to find Alex, he will have to get inside her head. 

ESCAPE IS JUST THE BEGINNING

Resourceful, tough, beautiful, always two steps ahead - Alex will keep Verhoven guessing till the bitter end. And before long, saving her life will be the least of his worries.

This isn't going to be an easy review to write. Not because I don't know what to say about the book - there's plenty I could say, but I really don't want to give away any spoilers and in a book that's as packed with twists as this one that's not easy.

Review Policy

Thank you for taking the time to read my review policy, I am very happy to review books on request and will accept submissions from publishers and authors. I prefer print books where possible but will also gladly read ebooks. I love crime fiction and SFF but also enjoy YA, historical fiction and some non-fiction, particularly memoirs. I'm also willing to read outside my preferred genres should the blurb entice me! I enjoy sharing books with my youngest daughter so I can also review books aimed at the 9-13 year old market, she prefers exciting adventure and/or fantasy stories with strong protagonists. I occasionally read romance but no erotica please.
I usually have several books lined up so if you would like a book reviewed by a certain date I will require at least a month's notice. Blogging about books is a hobby I am passionate about but I also have a job and a family so I may not be able to accept all requests.
I love taking part in blog tours and can usually provide a review but am also happy to feature guest posts or to host a Q&A with the author.
My reviews are always honest but I prefer not to post negative reviews so if your book is not for me I will contact you to explain this. I believe all books have their audience and sometimes I'm just not it! I will never ask for any payment for my reviews and I am not part of any affiliate program.
I can be contacted through the form in the sidebar on the home page of this blog, via email at hairpastafrecklebookreviews@gmail.com or via @karlou on Twitter.
