We gave away 50 copies of The Trap, a twisted debut thriller from Melanie Raabe.

He has since become a well-known reporter, and Linda, a famous novelist and infamous recluse. What will happen when they meet again?

A brilliantly written book that's hard to put down. Full of mystery and does make you think what could be around the corner for you!

I saw this post and waited until I have read the book. The Trap has 3 stories going on at once, and it keeps you reading and wondering.. There so many nail biting moments where what I thought would happen - actually does not. The book has twists and turns which kept me turning the pages. The book plot has Linda believing that a television journalist who she saw on the evening her sister died and she tries to entice him into an interview so she can get a better picture of his mind and intents to try to work out if he was the killer. I won't give the ending away on here.

Got everything crossed for this one! It's SO my cup of tea. Can imagine it being an all-nighter. Love a twisty book that screws with your head - just wish I could write one! Lol!

Andrews55 Mon 30-Jan-17 19:38:24

Sounds like another cracking read.
