A usual busy morning in a café and suddenly it all changed. Entered a gunman and 2 shots were fired. Everyone ran helter-skelter, only 3 remained along with one dead and 1 lost and 1 crazed. But there were secrets linking them. Then came the hostage negotiator and slowly the story unfurled.

My first book by author Charity Norman, I was awed in the way the story was foretold. There was something so poignant about their lives that each one of them touched my heart. Their courage, their sadness, their truths, and their lies all surfaced as each page was turned.

The author’s writing caused goosebumps to appear when the truths were revealed, it shocked me to my core. There was a certain old connection between them. And newer ones were formed between the hostages which touched my heart. There were times I had tears at the way they rallied together and supported each other. It was heart warming.

The story was fast paced; the scenes permeated my soul with its ambience, enlivening and shattering it both at the same time. Fear and dread, helplessness and resignation, friendship and camaraderie were all depicted seamlessly. Everything was so realistic.

Overall it was a beautifully written story with tension across the scenes along with poignancy and emotions.

I received a free ARC from NetGalley and the publisher, and this is my journey into its pages, straight from the heart!! STRICTLY HONEST AND UNBIASED.

A regular weekday morning veers drastically off-course for five strangers whose paths cross in a London café – their lives never to be the same again when an apparently crazed gunman holds them hostage. But there is more to the situation than first meets the eye and as the captives grapple with their own inner demons, the line between right and wrong starts to blur. Will the secrets they keep stop them from escaping with their lives?
