An amazing debut novel that you should not miss. Great writing and you will instantly be drawn in. I couldn’t put it down – it is a very fast-paced thriller with twists and turns. It is an amazing thriller Friend Request could-happen for you. I myself read it in one go . . . it was supremely grippy and as an excellent twist! Laura Marshall ramps up the tension page by page until it’s impossible to know who to trust. It’s a book that should make everybody realize how vulnerable social media can make them. I loved it!
