An interesting premise with the concept of if you want to save 3 of your loved ones, you give the names of 3 others as substitute

Chrissie never thought she would agree to it, but she did, on a lark. A difficult circumstance got her to activate her agreement in order to save her best friend. And the people whose names she had given as substitutes started dying.

The whole premise was interesting. I loved that Susi Holliday enmeshed scifi with thriller putting her main character in a moral dilemma, wanting to escape the grief of loosing a loved one and at the same time, being the one who signed off someone else’s death sentence.

I liked that it had a vibe of Michael Crichton with his Sphere but the suspense could be a bit more. The dialogues needed to be sharper but those were minor points. I enjoyed the book far more than her earlier one.

This made my pulse spike to know how she would tie up all the subplots as well as what would happen at the end.

What would you do if someone made such an offer?


Rating: 4 out of 5.

Three people live. Three people die. You make the choice.

Like any mother, Chrissie wants to protect her family. She would do anything to keep them safe. So when a mysterious stranger turns up at her door, offering to prevent the deaths of the people she loves, it sounds too good to be true. The only problem: she must choose someone to die in their place. A substitute.

When her daughter Holly has a terrible accident, Chrissie has no option but to enter the programme. In that horrifying moment, she would do anything to save her. But even after Holly makes a miraculous recovery, Chrissie is convinced it’s just a coincidence. After all, who can really control the laws of life and death?

But as the dangers to her family escalate and her chosen substitutes begin to disappear, Chrissie finds herself in an underworld of hidden laboratories and secretive doctors. And the consequences of playing by their rules are far deadlier than she ever imagined…

I downloaded the digital version of the book from an online retail, and this is my journey down its pages, straight from the heart. STRICTLY HONEST and UNBIASED.
