How far would you run to escape your past?
Venice Beach, Los Angeles. A paradise on earth.
Tourists flock to the golden coast and the promise of Hollywood.
But for eight strangers at a beach front hostel, there is far more on their mind than an extended vacation.
All of them are running from something. And they all have secrets they’d kill to keep…
I’ve read a couple of John’s books now but I certainly need to read all his other books as they are just brilliant. I think this is my favourite by far, it is set in Los Angeles on Venice Beach, John writes well so that you can imagine that you are there being able to hear the waves crashing against the rocks and the sand between your toes, life is idyllic. The story is about the eight people that are staying at one of the hostels, are they really here for the beach and the surf or are they here for something else? There are is a lot packed into this book but I found it easy to follow who is who. They each have their own story to tell and Venice Beach seems like the best place for it. The story flowed well for me, I didn’t want to put the book down after each chapter, a very good twisty thriller.
I received an ARC copy of this book for an honest review.
