About the book:
A Conspiracy. A cover-up. And a whistle-blower… You think you know who to trust? You’re wrong. Untouchable is a chillingly dark psychological thriller from the No 1 Bestselling Author of Look Behind You.
It’s Maya and Jamie’s anniversary, and she waits with excitement for him to return home for a celebratory dinner. There’s a knock at the door. It’s the police. Jamie has been found hanging in a local wood.
His death is ruled a suicide, but Maya doesn’t believe Jamie would take his own life. Something isn’t right. Someone has broken into her house. Someone is watching her. And someone has gone to great lengths to cover up what Jamie was doing before he died.
Maya’s grief turns to suspicion, and as she begins to investigate the weeks leading up to Jamie’s death, her trail leads her to a place known as “The Big House” and the horrific secrets within. Secrets people will stop at nothing to keep hidden. People linked to the heart of the Establishment who think they’re untouchable.
Now Maya has a dangerous decision to make. How far is she prepared to go to reveal the truth?
Untouchable was a completely unexpected read for me if I’m honest. I picked it up late at night and before I knew it I was a quarter of the way through! It is riveting, unsettling and full of tension so it was right up my street!!! 😉
In the aftermath of her boyfriend Jamie’s death, Maya is left to pick up the pieces but when she starts paying attention to small details she realises all is not what it seems in relation to Jamie’s suicide.
What follows is a very tense and absorbing read. The early part of the book is told in alternating chapters between Maya and Jamie and some of those chapters are the most harrowing I have read in a long time. So much so, I was afraid to turn the page because I was so uncomfortable reading it.
I’m not going to go in to detail, i.e, tell you all the reveals because Sibel Hodge has done an excellent job of teasing out little details and nuggets of information throughout the book and I won’t undo her hard work!
Sufficed to say, Untouchable is a book that will stay with you after reading it. I finished it a couple of days ago, and I am still thinking about it. It will run the gamut of your emotions, and I defy you not to feel it because it is truly harrowing at times.
My first book by Sibel Hodge, but most definitely not my last! I would highly recommend Untouchable. It’s out now in ebook and you can get a copy HERE.
