Where to begin. I will start first by saying I read this book in 2 sittings. One very late into the night, I just could not stop reading it. The sighs of relief when all seemed to go well, then the gasps of horror, when it was going wrong. I was gripped. I began to feel for Sarah and her situation. She was damned if she did and damned if she didn’t. I was saddened for her. I also felt this was a very topical subject at present.
To be left at the mercy of someone who could ruin your life and not to be able to speak out or if you did know you would be seen as the instigator. It shows that when you are in this situation you will not speak out, until long after the event. It can happen so easily. I will give my praise to the author for showing how people can get away with it for so long. Especially people who are in a position of power with their army of people who enable them.
9 Seconds has those addictive quality short chapters that leave you hanging, just to make sure you are still reading on. 29 Seconds is another one of T M Logan entertaining and tense with the thought-provoking premise… I would definitely recommend this, only because of his first novel “LIES” 29 Seconds is another fast-paced and twisted thriller.
Tim was born in Berkshire and studied at Queen Mary and Cardiff universities before becoming a national newspaper journalist. He currently writes full-time and lives in Nottinghamshire with his wife and two children. LIES is his first novel – published by Bonnier Zaffre in January
2017. T.M. Logan’s second novel, 29 Seconds, is a thriller with a twist you will never see coming.
Sarah rescues a girl in trouble but by doing so this act puts a powerful and dangerous man in her debt. He has a barbaric code where all debts must be repaid… And he is now offering Sarah a chance to break free from her boss. But all she has to do is make one 29-second phone call… There is always one person, in our lives that gets under your skin, it may not be someone we know personally, it might someone who is often in the news. So if you could make them disappear off the face of the earth, would you take it? This was the question posed to Sarah, our lead character; the one name that forms on her tongue, but she can’t just bring herself to say it, she knew that it was morally wrong and there would be catastrophic for her, but what happens if she is pushed over the edge?
Earlier in the year, I read T.M. Logan’s debut novel, “Lies” which was a riveting read which I really enjoyed, so this second novel has a lot to live up to, and It wasn’t disappointing, it took me a few days to finish it. As I have come to expect with T.M. Logan’s writing, it was fast-paced and quite simply unputdownable.
The idea for his latest novel, 29 Seconds is so amazing, that it was quite simple at the start but then he broadens it into an action-packed thriller which will keep you turning the pages. When we came across Sarah, she really didn’t know who she was going to turn to for help as she gets cornered by her boss’s advances, he clearly think’s that he can treat her however he likes.
I began to feel really angry as I read these scenes I couldn’t believe how he was able to get away with it. It’s here the plot takes a surprising turn, then she is made an offer that will change her life.
What makes the idea in this book is really interesting, it really did get me thinking, would I take this offer if I was in Sarah’s shoes? I can see it will prompt lots of discussions.
The book is incredible and highlights these issues that have come up in the To campaign.
