Book Review: ’29 Seconds’ Is A Good Psychological Thriller

A man makes an offer to Sarah. Give me one name. One person that you would want gone. I will make them disappear. And so it begins in T.M. Logan’s new book 29 Seconds.

Sarah is a Professor who is married (currently separated) with two young kids. She is up for a contract position for the second year in a row. She feels this is the year she should get it. But one man stands in her way. Alan Hawthorne is her boss and he is a ladies man. He is known for his practices of trying to sleep with any woman he can. He’s powerful and it’s a boys club so not much can be done about this. You just have to watch yourself and hope for the best.

He has set his sites on Sarah who wants nothing to do with him. He has made it clear her job can be in jeopardy if she doesn’t play ball with him. But now she has a drastic option she could take.

On her way to pick up her kids she stops what looks like an attempted kidnapping of a little girl. The father of the little girl meets with Sarah to thank her for what she did. He’s rich and powerful and tells her she owes her for saying his daughter. He tells her to give him a name and that person will vanish (never to be heard from again). She thinks of Alan but can’t bring herself to do it. Until she learns the depths of how bad he really is. She makes a 29 second call and it is in progress. She has second thoughts but it’s too late at this point.

Alan goes missing and the police are investigating. Then days later Sarah gets a strange text ‘I Know What You Did’ and she freaks out. Then it becomes a game of cat and mouse. Who sent the text and what is Sarah going to do to save herself. A plan is hatched and one will survive and one will fall leading to a climatic showdown.

A thrilling story with lots of twists and turns you don’t see coming. Once you start you won’t want to put this page-turner down, right up to the last word of the book. Author T.M. Logan never disappoints.

You can pick it up in stores on Tuesday, September 10th from St. Martin’s Press.
