Book Review – The Catch by T.M Logan

He is not what he seems . . .

Ed is delighted to meet his twenty-three year old daughter’s fiancé for the first time. Abbey is head-over-heels in love with her new man. Smart, successful and handsome, Ryan appears to be the perfect future son-in-law.

There’s just one problem. There’s something off about Ryan. Something hidden in the shadows behind his eyes. And it seems that only Ed can see it.

Terrified that his daughter is being drawn in by a psychopath, Ed sets out to uncover her fiancé’s dark past – while keeping his own concealed. But no-one believes him. And the more he digs, the more he alienates her and the rest of the family who are convinced that Ryan is ‘the one’.

Ed knows different. For reasons of his own, he knows a monster when he sees one

I like my thrillers fast paced, gripping, psychological and twisty with characters I can’t quite work out. I want to read it in big greedy chunks and not notice how quickly the pages are turning

That’s EXACTLY what you get with T M Logan. His latest book, The Catch is all of the above. I couldn’t put it down!

When Ed meets daughter Abbie’s boyfriend for the first time, he takes an instant dislike. While everyone is smitten by the generous, charismatic and thoughtful Ryan, Ed feels unease – something in his eyes worries him. When Abbie announces her engagement and quickly upcoming marriage, Ed decides to dig a bit further into Ryan’s past, becoming increasingly obsessed and irrational. Is Ed just an overprotective father – he’s got form after all. Or is something more sinister going on?

Ed is a fantastic character who had my mind changing about him frequently. I felt sorry for him, then worried for him, then downright terrified as his obsession about Ryan spirals out of control! I mean, this guy is on it! Talk about an unreliable character! He’s intense and singleminded, with guarded secrets of his own

The pages literally flew reading this book. My proof was pretty big and daunting, but l read half the book before I even looked up. The writing flows so well with short snappy chapters and perfectly pitched twists making it impossible to put down.

If you’re looking for a summer thriller, then look no further. Perfect reading while you chill in your garden and dip your toes in the paddling pool! T M Logan has well and truly earned his name as master of the summer must read and I’ve no hesitation recommending this!

Thanks to the publisher for my #gifted copy
