{Book Review} Someone to Save

Someone to save is a book I purchased via kindle in 2015 and only managed to read it in 2016. It’s the only book I read in 2016 and it left me so confused 🤷‍♀️. Yet it was so gripping with the right amount of shock, I found it had to put it down. I must confess it’s not the kind of book I usually go for but somehow I wanted to read it. So here us my mini review of someone to save.

Review ~ Someone to Save

When the books starts you meet Sam Baker, an amazing surgeon married to an amazing humanitarian. His home life sounds perfect, at work he has bitter rivalry with another doctor who views Sam a threat. Because Sam is loved by the professor and most likely to get the one available fellowship in that department.

Then you’re introduced to a woman who is committing suicide with her kids in the car. Things unfold from there and it’s nothing you except because though everything that happens seems random it’s actually all connected in a twisted kind of fate. I don’t want to spoil it for anyone but it is a worthy read. Though I was left confused at first but after hindsight it was perfectly executed with enough oomph to carry you through to the end. But I also feel some characters like Sam’s wife should have featured more, the missing girl too and the parents. 

Product Description

Fifteen years ago, Sam Becker’s sister was killed, a tragedy that haunts him to this day—particularly as his best friend, Marcus, was jailed for her murder.

Driving home from the bittersweet celebration of what would have been her thirtieth birthday, Sam is confronted with a terrifying scene, and has just moments to try to save four lives. In the aftermath of this chilling drama, he is hailed as a hero by the press—but to the investigating police, things do not add up. Sam finds himself drawn into a conspiracy of lies and organised crime that puts his own life in danger.
And to make matters worse, Marcus is out of prison, hoping for reconciliation and determined to clear his name. Sam is forced to confront his own dark past, but as the layers of deceit are peeled back, can he really trust anyone around him?
