London, the near future. GRM, a shadowy company running private prisons, has introduced a programme to alter prisoners’ memories, removing those that led to their criminal behaviour. When journalist Antonia Conti hears rumours that the technology has deadly side effects, she decides to investigate.
Antonia has looked into GRM’s corrupt dealings with the government before, and when a stolen lorry ploughs into a whistle-blower’s car, leaving him dead and her trapped in the burning vehicle, she’s convinced GRM are responsible. Enlisting her old friend DI Russell Chapman to check out the supposed ‘accident’, she discovers that he’s already investigating three other deaths that appear suspiciously linked to her own investigations.
The deeper Antonia probes, the more her friends and colleagues are at risk. Whatever sinister experiments GRM are conducting, they are determined to keep them secret. By any means necessary. Can Antonia and Chapman thwart them before anyone else loses their life? Or their mind?
This is book two in the Antonia Conti thriller series, I kind of wished I had read the first book first as I would of got to know a little more about the characters but I chose to read book two first, it can be read as a standalone. I am looking forward to reading book one next so I can get the back story. I found Antonia relatable and realistic and the author David has written her well. I liked the short chapters it makes you want to read on and also I liked how fast paced the story is, it kept me on my toes wondering what Antonia was going to do next. I liked the mixture of characters and the story was really good. I look forward to reading more of the Antonia Conti thriller series. If you after a great series read these books.
I received an ARC copy of this book for an honest review.
