When ex-marine Sarah French joins a luxury superyacht as on-board security, she’s excited to get her life – and career – back on track.

Surrounded by crystal waters, it seems like the perfect place to start over.

As they head into open water, though, tensions between the crew quickly build. And when someone goes missing, Sarah has a terrifying realisation.

One of them is a killer. All of them are suspects.

To protect the other passengers, Sarah needs to uncover the killer’s identity, and return the boat safely to shore.

But there’s a storm on the horizon – and not all of them will make it out alive…

My Review:

I’d like to thank Jen from Michael Joseph for contacting me to take part in this blog tour.

This story follows the journey of Sarah, an ex-marine who is struggling following a traumatic event, who is hired as security on board a super yacht. Whilst trying to fight her inner demons Sarah befriends the different crew members and sets to work. I liked Sarah and was intrigued by her back story, her combat skills were also very impressive and I liked how quick thinking she was.

This one did start off a little slow for me, I was waiting for the first passenger to disappear and started to question when it would happen? However when it did happen the whole book seemed to take off and the action just kept coming.

I honestly didn’t know who to trust on the yacht. Everyone seemed to have an agenda and motive, each one as unreliable as the next. Sarah certainly had her work cut out for her, trying to figure out what exactly was happening onboard The Escape. I did have a few inclines along the way which turned out to be correct but I loved following the breadcrumbs left by the authors.

As everything was building up the ending proved to be as explosive and dramatic as I had hoped. Each scene played out in my head like a movie so I’m pleased to see the movie rights have already been secured.

If you love a thriller that keeps you guessing and has you more twisted than a game of Twister then this is for you! Entertaining, engaging and explosive!

Don’t forget to check out the other stops on the tour!

  1. This sounds like one that I would enjoy. Thanks for the warning that it starts slow. I am adding this one and will watch for the movie in the future. I agree with Tessa, these “Locked Room” type mysteries are always entertaining and get me in my armchair sleuth mode.
