It’s 5 p.m. on a Friday.
You have been called to an interview for your dream job.
In a stunning office thirteen floors above the city below, you are all alone with the man interviewing you.
Everyone else has gone home for the weekend.
The interview gets more and more disturbing.
You’re feeling scared.
Your only way out is to answer a seemingly impossible question.
If you can’t . . . what happens next?
I received a copy of this book from Pan Macmillan in return for an honest review.
The Interview is a compelling and intense thriller. There is a balance of action, some violent and psychological suspense that keeps the reader riveted. A young woman goes for an interview at a prestigious PR company in their ultra-modern offices. She is nervous, and it’s clear from the start she is anxious about the interview and if she is ready to do the job if she gets it. The building is only partly occupied and very high-tech. The setting is integral to the story.
There are only a few characters, but they are all impactful. The plot is twisty but believable and explores contemporary themes. The conclusion is adrenaline-fueled, poignant and satisfying.
