A Long Shadow ( An Antonia Conti Thriller Book one) By David Beckler

The constant threat of terrorism has left London under round-the-clock surveillance and in the tightening grip of privatised security firms. Journalist Antonia Conti suspects one such organisation—GRM—not only of being behind several women’s disappearances, but of financing the widespread violence it claims to fight.

When a gang of hitmen use rampant state surveillance to track Antonia down, she narrowly escapes with her life. But then one of them turns up dead—covered in her DNA—and Antonia finds herself the prime suspect in his murder.

DS Russell Chapman needs to bring her in. But evidence that Antonia has been framed quickly stacks up and when a personal grudge between her and GRM’s shadowy head of security is revealed, he begins an uncomfortable partnership with her.

Together, the pair delve beneath the surface of the corporate machine and soon find themselves embroiled in a dark and violent underworld even they had barely dared imagine. Will they find the evidence to bring GRM down? And can they keep Antonia’s name off the list of missing women?

My Thoughts:

This is the first book in the Antonia Conti thriller Series, and was absolutely brilliant. It is a fast paced thriller that will keep you hooked until the very last page. Antonia Conti is the main character but we also get to meet some other characters that are all interesting. I loved the way the story flows and how much research David the author must of put into it is incredible. I had no clue what the outcome of this story was and was shocked by the ending. It is a heart stopping and engrossing thriller and one that I cannot wait to read more of.

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