The 3rd Woman by Jonathan Freedland

First off, my thanks to Hayley at Harper Collins for my review copy!

 

About the book (via Goodreads)

The United States have yielded to the People’s Republic of China – Beijing has written off trillions of dollars of US debt in return for a permanent military presence on US soil. America is now a former global superpower, dependent on and junior to China. And the evidence – cultural and political – is everywhere.

Madison Webb is a work-obsessed journalist who will do anything to get to the heart of a story; to expose lies and corruption. When her sister is brutally murdered, the police seem too eager to write it up as an isolated incident. Madison starts digging and uncovers a series of similar rape-murder cases.

As her investigation beings to attract the media spotlight, Madison draws the attention of some powerful people. And when she reveals the link between the victims, Madison will find out that the Chinese military makes for a terrifying enemy…


My thoughts:

The 3rd Woman is an intriguing book. Were introduced to Madison Webb, avid reporter but has her own issues going on.

When her sister gets murdered, Madison begins a crusade to find her sisters killer. Stopping at nothing, she incurs the wrath of people with more power than she ever expected.

During the course of her investigation, Madison finds a tenuous link between her sisters murder, and the murders of two other women, whose deaths essentially passed under the radar.

The 3rd Woman is a tense read, filled with political agendas and media politics. It touches on drugs, conspiracies and hacking throughout the course of the story which sends the reader off on tangents to try and figure out what’s going on.

I found the book to be a good read, not my usual genre (I tend to avoid anything with politics as it’s just a subject I can’t ever get to grips with!!!) but it still delivered a decent plot with an ending that I wasn’t expecting if I’m honest.

I gave The 3rd Woman 3⭐️ on Goodreads.

It’s released in paperback today and you can buy your copy HERE
