    I love a book that messes with my head and keeps me guessing I love a book in which the killer s identity isn t revealed too early in the story and I am given an opportunity to figure out who they are for myself I love a story that is riveting and enthralling,holds my attention throughout and leaves me wantingwhen I finish the book Well, I am pleased to say that Half way is all that and so much .The Halfway inn is closed to customers, side lined by a bypass and hidden in inhospitabl I love a book that messes with my head and keeps me guessing I love a book in which the killer s identity isn t revealed too early in the story and I am given an opportunity to figure out who they are for myself I love a story that is riveting and enthralling,holds my attention throughout and leaves me wantingwhen I finish the book Well, I am pleased to say that Half way is all that and so much .The Halfway inn is closed to customers, side lined by a bypass and hidden in inhospitable countryside One winter s night,two women end up knocking on the door, seeking refuge as a blizzard takes hold.But why is the landlord less than pleased to see them And what is his elderly father trying to tell them At the local police station PC Lissa Lloyd is reluctantly holding down the fort while the rest of her crew share in the rare excitement of a brutal murder at an isolated farmhouse A dangerous fugitive is on the run, but how can Lissa make a name for herself if she is stuck behind her desk When a call comes in saying that the local district nurse is missing, Lissa jumps at the chance to investigate her disappearance.The strangers at Halfway wait out the storm, but soon realise they might have been safer on the road It seems not all travellers will make it home for Christmas.This gripping,fast paced thriller is set over the space of 23 hours and the story is told in chapters that alternate between Lissa the law the hitchhiker and the old man Out of the small number of other characters,the only two who are really relevant to the plot are the landlord and the nurse Unfortunately, many of us have a bad habit of judging people and the author has used this frailty in human nature as a brilliant plot devise Misdirecting the reader, making you think you know the character s back stories when in reality,than one of them is now who they appear to be By the time I finished this riveting read, I had completely changed my feelings and opinion aboutthen one character and had realised that I had misjudged one character completely.I absolutely loved this intricately plotted,well written psychological thriller from the heart pounding prologue, right through to the ending that had just a tiny dash of poetic justice There are two morals to this story 1 don t be so quick to pass judgement on people and 2 be careful what you wish for I would love to watch a film adaptation of this book This is the first book that I have read by this author and it most definitely will not be my last Very very highly recommended by little old meMany thanks to Little Brown Books Uk Cornerstone and Emma Welton for the opportunity to read and review this book and take part in the Blog tour
