Weaving my way through motherhood whilst trying not to mess up adulthood.

The 3rd Woman- Jonathan Freedland

 



I might not write as often as I would like to, but reading is a comfort of mine that I will hopefully never lose touch with. My handbag often has a book and if not, I have a kindle app jam packed with quick reads or the latest page turner. Which is why when I was offered the opportunity to review The 3rd woman by Jonathan Freedland, I couldn't wait to get stuck into a novel described as 'A strikingly fresh thriller...ingeniously realized'

In a United States that has yielded to the People’s Republic of China, corruption is rife, and the government dictates what the 'truth' is. Madison refuses to accept the official line that her sister Abigail's death was an isolated crime - but with her life on the line, she must give up her story or face the consequences.

Instantly, we are transported into the journalistic world of Madison Webb who reminds me of a British Stacy Dooley in the style of her undercover reporting. At first I assumed Freedland would make me work hard to understand the politics within the plot but as soon as Abigail's body is discovered the story picks up pace and we are thrown head first into a conspiracy theory, murder mystery and quest to discover who killed Abigail and who will be next.

 The story is cleverly written and well thought out and had me gripped until the very last page and although I wasn't instantly sucked in, I am so so glad that I preserved because The 3rd Woman is a thoroughly gripping read.

Let me know if you have read or are reading The 3rd Woman.
