"A pacy gripping thriller that kept me hanging in there" MJPA, Amazon "Light, pacy contemporary thriller from an assured storyteller...a mix of light entertainment, suspense and wry insight into modern society" Debbie Young, Amazon 1,000 Top Reviewer " If you're into shady dealings and corporate cunning, seasoned with a subplot involving a cure for cancer, this pacy, stylish thriller should be your next read." CA Mathews, Amazon "Another highlight is the dramatic conclusion in the secret tunnels beneath Birmingham's Jewellery Quarter, which makes for an extremely tense and claustrophobic finale."

Abbott once again shows her detailed knowledge of both cities, with references to pubs, streets and regional vernacular all accurate and familiar. This authentic world-building helps the reader become fully-immersed in Abbott's gritty tale and locals will enjoy references to some of their familiar haunts.
As you would expect from Abbott, the past is fast and the narrative hops between the six characters at breakneck speed. Many of these characters are a lot more complex than the characters in her early novels, such as After The Interview, which means you may still be deciding who to root for until the last few chapters. This makes for exciting reading.
Abbott also breaks new ground in the plot, exploring new depths of London's criminal underbelly, such as illegal gambling, identity theft and false marriages, all of which are fascinating. The second half of the novel then focusses on the disappearance of beautiful croupier Kat and the competing friends and enemies who are racing to find her.
The highlight of the novel is the mismatched pairing of sensible Amy and arrogant actuary Ross, who join forces to search for Kat across Birmingham. Their love-hate relationship is very entertaining and turns several corners as the novel unfolds. Another highlight is the dramatic conclusion in the secret tunnels beneath Birmingham's Jewellery Quarter, which makes for an extremely tense and claustrophobic finale.
If you are looking for a UK thriller, equal parts corporate and criminal, then look no further. Here comes The Bride's Trail.
The last crime book I read was a Robert Galbraith (aka J. K. Rowling) and the descriptions of London and the young women in this book very much reminded me of that - and anyone should take that as a compliment as I'm in awe of J.K. Rowling's writing in adult fiction.
This is the kind of book that makes you escape completely from your surroundings and your own life. If you're looking for that kind of thing, look no further!
I like the way the book is structured. Each chapter is written from the point of view of one of the characters, giving more information about their motivation and intentions, yet not giving too much away. If you’re into shady dealings and corporate cunning, seasoned with a subplot involving a cure for cancer, this pacy, stylish thriller should be your next read.
The title may confuse some, but this is no romantic reverie. The central character, Kat, around whom the plot pivots, is awesomely awful, I kept hoping for a redeeming feature but found Kat lacking in anything other than beauty, boundless self-confidence and the staying power of a gnat. Evident at the start, Kat in absentia, makes one wonder why anyone should wish to find her.
The edge of grimness, and the potential for awful consequence, looms as the chase continues. Abbott uses the multiple points of view technique to good effect. This can sometimes be a tiresome literary tactic, breaking off when the plot is buzzing, or weakening the story with lacklustre sectioning. In this novel, the plot moves easily, seamlessly segueing from one perspective to another, not detracting from the story at all. I think this is her best yet.
