I was expecting the book to kick off really hard at the beginning. I remember reading excerpts of previous Alex North books and getting creeped out really early on. I think this one is just too slow of an opening for me.
I wouldn't read more to find out what happens next. I'm sure the book will have a lot more going on as it progresses, but this wasn't the fast-paced thriller start I was hoping for when I read the first look.
I think the cover art is really cool and classic. It definitely gives off thriller vibes. I'm sure lots of thriller readers will like this one, but it just wasn't capturing my attention.
