Description

BOOKS 1 and 2 in the CAL HARRISON THRILLER SERIES.

The gripping two-part story of 26-year-old Sofie James, recovering from her father’s recent suicide, who learns that he may have been the victim of a secret drug trial. Desperate to uncover the truth, she agrees to meet two pharma company whistleblowers with a journalist friend on a Thames river boat. But it all goes horrifyingly wrong: her friend and the two men are shot and left for dead, and Sofie narrowly escapes with her life.

Shockingly, they disappear, along with the evidence, and the police don’t believe her. As a witness, Sofie's life is now in grave danger, not least because the chairman of the company conducting the drug trial, Cambridge Bio, is a leading politician. Forced to try to solve the mystery on her own, she goes on the run. But there’s someone else looking for her: ex-special forces Cal Harrison had been tasked by Cambridge to ‘protect’ the whistleblowers, and he suspects he’s been set up. When he begins to question their disappearance, he finds himself in the frame for their murder.

His only hope of saving himself, and getting to the truth, is to find her.

In Part 2, 'Don't Look Down', the story comes to a thrilling climax as they flee together to Paris and Amsterdam, forging new identities for them both in an effort to hide from authorities they can no longer trust. Their survival depends on Sofie gaining the confidence of a pharma company insider, and the ability of Cal to shake off their pursuers. When matters finally come to a terrifying climax in Gibraltar, there are just three words on a map that stand between them and their salvation…

This book was a great duology to begin the Cal Harrison thriller series. You really can’t read one without the other as our first book ends on a cliffhanger before the thrilling mystery of the girl on the boat is resolved and this storyline gets its full conclusion across the whole duology.

JD Wood has a great writing style that is descriptive yet easy to follow. The tension in both books across this duology feels very natural and kept me gripped the whole time while reading.

For any fans of crime thriller I HIGHLY reccommend giving this duology a go as I’m sure it will suck you into the plot the same way it did me.

I read the first book. Loved it. Then had to wait patiently. Unlike me you don’t need to wait for book two because this duology brings both books together, now! Exciting, fast paced crime/espionage thriller. Thank you to BooksGoSocial and NetGalley for the ARC. The views expressed are all mine, freely given.

Thank goodness for book two as I was on tenterhooks after the first instalment. This is a truly talented author who has created a series which you can really get yourself lost in. There is enough detail to be satisfying while leaving enough grey area to keep you wondering what next…

Happy to have received both books so that I could keep reading rather than be left hanging! It's a gripping, fast-paced story that keeps you engaged most of the time. It's complex in the sense that you want to keep reading to figure out things. The main characters are interesting. These two books are on the shorter side (for me) but there is so much happening! This was a great book to read inbetween more serious (heavy) thrillers.

A decent read, whilst not one of those books that makes you want to keep turning the pages as you want to find out what happens next.

I had read the first book in this series and then the Author reached out and asked if I would mind reading the next book, conclusion of the first part I had already finished. So I read the duology from the beginning. I liked the mystery and the very thought out plot. Thank you JD Wood for the opportunity to review this book.

A fabulously written gripping story that was a pleasure to read. I would absolutely recommend this book, it was brilliant

I did enjoy this book, though this time I have only read part 2 (read part 1 a couple of months ago) . Saying that, I will read both books in this duology sometime in the future. This book is as action packed and as cryptic as book 1. With the time between reading books 1 and 2, I had lost some momentum with the plot (which is why I will reread in the future) and the switching between characters and locations was confusing and perhaps a little irritating. The book did come together though as it progressed and it kept my interest.
I think the choice of a two in one edition is a good one, I`m not sure about the two volumes, neither particularly long. With a couple of tweaks, a single book might have been better ?
Thanks to Net Galley and the publisher for this ARc in exchange for an honest review

Great series! These books were like watching a Tom Cruise or Bond movie!! Lol They had great suspense, intrigue, action packed, murder, mystery, MI6, bad cops, fantastic shootouts, high speed chases, a few who done it and some crazy twists and turns! The storyline was very interesting and kept me glued to my Kindle! I highly recommend reading this book and series! They're well worth reading! Thank you Netgalley and the publisher for sharing this book with me!
