Book Review - No Way Back by Andrew Gross

No Way Back

No Way Back by Andrew Gross

From Goodreads:

No Way Back is a thrilling page-turner from Andrew Gross, the New York Times bestselling author of 15 Seconds and The Blue Zone. One woman is framed for a horrific crime, and desperate to prove her innocence.

A chance meeting with a stranger in a hotel ends in a shocking murder. Wendy Gould is an average mom--and the only witness. Nanny Lauritzia Velez knows a shocking secret that could prove to be deadly. Both of their lives in danger, this unlikely pair must work together against a network of dangerous men who want nothing more than to see them dead.

A fast-paced, riveting tale with strong, compelling characters, No Way Back is an edge-of-your-seat read with nonstop action and a complex mystery.

First time reading this author. It's okay, the characters weren't very memorable. The shocking secret didn't make me go ah-ha. It was a fast read, but there are better thrillers out there. The description above sounded better than the book...

I also got a little confused between two minor characters at first (I thought they were the same person, because one was named Ned, the other Neil), which consequently, made me confused about the time line.... Other reviews said the author's other books are better, so maybe I won't write him off yet.

2.5 Stars.

  1. I haven't heard of this author but the premise of this book sounds good. Sorry that this didn't work out too well.

    1. I haven't heard of him before either - but I do like trying out new authors!
