A big bag of money + a dead girl + a man in debt = moral dilemma
This is the cornerstone of this book, Noah finds a big bag loaded with money, in the car of a dead girl, takes the money, does not report to the police and the story continues with Noah in the centre of the storm…
K. T. Finch‘s story deals with the moral dilemma of will we, won’t we, in the face of personal problems and huge debts. All the characters are coated with dark shades of black. There is selfishness, jealousy, greed, each one is manipulative in one way or the other.
The book deals with a lot of moral issues, the characters are realistic as most are in real life. The book is a thriller with questions where Noah’s perversions put me off. A bit of a slow start but had enough twists to keep me reading.
I received an ARC from NetGalley and publisher Bookouture, and this is my honest and unbiased opinion.
My rating : 3 stars
Noah Kendall loves his family, but hates his teaching job. Mortgage, bills and mouths to be fed: he’s stuck in a rut. And with more debts piling up each day, he knows that something has to change.
As he opens yet another red letter, he has to get out and clear his head, despite the heavy Alaskan snow outside. His legs ache as he runs deeper into the forest, until he notices something in the distance – a crashed car, sitting dead still. Inside, a girl sits slumped in the driver’s seat, eyes closed, mouth open, skin grey beneath the winter frost.
And then beside her he sees it: a bag of money. And lots of it. Enough to pay off his debt and start a whole new life. And it’s just sitting there, waiting for him to take it…
