You know what we thriller readers love – twists. This book had so many of them that they took my breath away. Author Louise Candlish was brilliant in the plotting of a wicked mind when she etched these characters
Twister, twister so many twisters. How I loved to be blown away by them.
My mind was a pendulum unable to decide what could have happened to the missing passenger. The book started when Jamie was interrogated by two cops about the disappearance of Kit, his co-traveler whom he had last seen on 23rd December 2019 after a skirmish post drinks.
The story covered the time frame between 23rd to the New year then going back in time when it all began. The characters were believable where Jamie and his partner Claire were in their late 40s and Kit and Melia were the Gen X. The scenes held its authenticity with the viewpoints of the characters.
Midway down the book, everything changed. The author was one crazy cat who made me twang out theories but nothing was concrete. All my theories went flying out of the window. I loved how I was lulled into believing something, then have the rug pulled from under me.
Except in a few places, most of the prose was fast-paced. The story was wickedly scened, the subplots were straightly-curved ™ (yes, that’s a newly coined word by me) and saw me lost me in the vortex of what happened to Kit.
The Other Passenger was one wicked ride and so recommended for thriller-lovers.

On the morning of Monday 23rd December, Jamie Buckby takes the commuter riverboat from his home in St Mary’s, southeast London, to work in Central London, noting that his good friend and neighbour Kit Roper has not turned up for the 7.30am service they usually catch together.
At the London Eye, where he disembarks for his job in a café behind the South Bank Centre, Jamie is met by the police. Kit has been reported missing by his wife.
As Jamie is taken in for questioning, he discovers someone saw him arguing with Kit on the boat home late on Friday night. The other passenger believes Jamie committed murder.
But what really happened?
