I received a copy of this book from Boldwood Books via NetGalley in return of an honest review.

My Thoughts…

This is a gritty urban thriller with believable characters and events. Jess is on probation and anxious not return to prison. Forced to work in an industrial laundry, she is pushed into an abusive environment but determined not to be a victim.

This is a suspenseful story with good use of pace. Psychological suspense and vivid crime details draw the reader into Jess’ world. The plot has unexpected twists and a dramatic conclusion.

This story has an authentic urban ethos with relatable characters and an absorbing plot.
