When I saw that Kirkus Review called this book a “queer thriller”, I was intrigued. Now that I’ve read the book I would add that it also is a touch atmospheric. The author allows us to glimpse Smythe’s thoughts and allows us to experience her journey as it’s happening. Along with the “thrill of the chase”, Smythe’s growth throughout the course of the story adds an element of relatability to the story.
I love finding new authors at the beginning of their careers and I can’t wait to see how Wise follows up this captivating debut!
