I am missing. Held
captive by a blue-eyed stranger. To mark the twelve days of Christmas,
he gives me a gift every day, each more horrible than the last. The
twelfth day is getting closer. After that, there'll be no more Christmas
cheer for me. No mince pies, no carols. No way out .
But I have a secret. No-one has guessed it. Will you?
Jessica Gold stops to have a coffee while shopping on Christmas Eve when a good looking man asks to sit down at her table. They get talking and she agrees to leave with him, a decision she soons comes to regret. The novel is very dark and I was gripped straight away, desperately wondering if or how she would escape the clutches of Dominic, her captor. In part two the story takes an unexpected turn, it was certainly something I never saw coming. At this point that the story became less believable for me but was no less enjoyable because of it. I spent most of the book trying to figure out what was going on and it kept me guessing until the very end, exactly what you want from a psychological thriller as well as the twists that Dying For Christmas provides.
Rating: 4 out of 5
