1989 By Val McDermid

1989. The world is on the brink of revolution and journalist Allie Burns is a woman on a mission. When she discovers a lead about the exploitation of society’s most vulnerable, Allie is determined to investigate and give voice to the silenced.

Elsewhere, a ticking clock begins the countdown to a murder. As Allie begins to connect the dots and edges closer to exposing the truth, it is more shocking than she ever imagined. There’s nothing like a killer story, and to tell it, Allie must risk her freedom and her life . . .

My Thoughts:

This is the second book in the Allie Burns series, it can be read as a standalone but if you want more of the background of the characters I would recommend reading the other book first. It is all about Allie who is always on a mission, her job as a journalist is to hunt down the truth and she will get the truth come hell or high water. Allie is one determined and strong woman and she takes it upon herself to find out the truth, but can she do it without coming to any harm? The story flowed well, it was a little slow and I didn’t find I had a connection with any of the characters but it was ok and I finished it.

I received an ARC copy of this book for an honest review.

Thank you to lovereading for sending me a copy.
