A fast, spinning thriller, the suspense taut like elastic from start to finish. And the central character is a tiny baby.
It takes a while to work out what is going on, why this three month-old child is so significant, and then the whodunnit countdown to eliminate the often bizarre and disturbed characters. Written from the perspective of several characters, allowing the reader to form a link, for a short while we can take their side. Mainly though, the story is sold from the point of view of a woman who is handed a baby to look after for a few minutes while the mother takes a phone call whilst on a moving train. Then she gets off leaving the stranger to look after the child.
This pacy book is easy to read and to empathise with most of the characters, even the weird ones. The theme, as the title says, is about who to trust and how it isn't always so obvious. I expect this to be another bestseller for T.M. Logan.
