by | Sep 5, 2018 | Books | 0 comments

The Confession is a great psychological thriller that hits all the right notes and keeps the reader engaged for the whole story. There’s so many twists and turns you have to keep focused on what your reading. I read a lot of these types of books and this is up there with as one of my favorite books of the year. It starts on page one and ends with the very last word of the novel. Job well done author Jo Spain!

Harry McNanara (a rich banker) and his wife Julie are sitting at home one night watching TV. Nothing out of the ordinary. Then a man J.P. Carney shows up in their living room with a gold club and proceeds to bash the crap our of Harry while Julie stunned watches. Then J.P. leaves goes to the nearest police station and tells them what he did. He says he has no idea how he got there, who Harry was or why he did it. He just knows he did. He’s keep under watch and the investigation into the case commences.

Then the questions and answers slowly appear. Why did he do it? Is he mentally incompetent or is this an act? What is his motive (there has to be one)? The story is written from a certain characters points of view every chapter. We learn the backstories of Harry, Julie and J.P. and how they fit into each others worlds and that not everything is as it seems. Secrets are revealed, plots hatched and a showdown to end showdowns leads to the climatic finale of the book.

Just a well done job all the way around. I can’t say enough how much I enjoyed this book and you will to when it releases on Tuesday, September 11th from Crooked Lane Books.
