Criminal psychologist Dr Kate Pearson is haunted by a past she can’t remember. When she was twelve years old she was abducted, but has no memory of that time. Kate’s now a mother and taking time out from her work and is stunned one day to discover an anonymous note has been pushed under her door. The flat she’s always assumed to be so secure, obviously isn’t. The note simply says, ‘I remember you, Kate,’ but it unleashes a reality that she’d never considered. When a suspected suicide in Dublin and a murder in New York seem somehow connected to her own abduction Kate is forced to look back and ends up making discoveries about her past that changes everything she thought she’d ever known.
This book is about The Game Changer, a mysterious person bent on revenge. But what is The Game Changer wanting revenge for and who is behind this murderous need? Kate has to look at her own relationships with people from her past and when her police detective partner, Adam, is assigned to the case she is able to delve into the clues as they become apparent.
I took a little while to get into this book mainly because it was written from so many different points of view. On the one hand that could be a little confusing, but it also meant that the action never stopped and this plot did need to be seen from the various characters’ perspectives. At first you wonder how these people, so different from each other, can be connected and then when they come together and you realise the different part they played in the scenario or why each of them has been chosen it all makes sense.The story kept me guessing right until the end and I did enjoy this fast-paced, at times shocking book very much.
