It’s an absolute pleasure today to be able to share my review for Freefall by Adam Hamdy, the second book in the trilogy and oh boy is it another cracker. My thanks go to Anne Cater for the opportunity to be on the blog tour.
JOHN WALLACE IS A TARGET
Hiding off-grid after exposing the shadowy Pendulum conspiracy, Wallace is horrified to discover he is still marked for death.
THERE ARE ONLY TWO PEOPLE HE CAN TRUST
DI Patrick Bailey is still reeling from the murder investigation that nearly cost him his life.
FBI Agent Christine Ash is hunting a serial killer with a link to an unfinished case
HE MUST FIND THE TRUTH
The death of a London journalist triggers an investigation that brings them back together, hurling them into the path of an unknown enemy.
BEFORE THE KILLER FINDS HIM
Hunted across the world, they are plunged into a nightmare deadlier than they could have ever imagined.
Freefall is the follow on book from Adam Hamdy’s first book Pendulum which I absolutely loved. There’s always a worry, that little niggle at the back of your mind when starting a second book, that it wont be quite as good as the first but there was no need to worry here. Freefall is an absolute cracker and I’m super excited now to read the final book and hopefully I wont have too long to wait. If you’re reading this Mr Hamdy, I’m cracking the whip 😉
Freefall follows John Wallace, Christine Ash and Patrick Bailey after the very traumatic and devastating events of Pendulum. Each character is trying to get their head round the events that have changed their lives but with each of them having their own demons to battle it’s not an easy task and to be totally honest if I was one of them I think I’d have completely lost the plot.
John has taken himself off to Afghanistan, Bailey is still a detective inspector in England and Ash a federal agent in America, each of them are trying to get on with their lives but Pendulum has other ideas and is determined to bring the three characters down and no matter where they are in the world it looks like nothing is going to stop Pendulum.
Adam Hamdy really has quite a clever and twisted mind, that’s honestly a good thing when it comes to Freefall. Oh boy was I totally hooked and I’m surprised I have any nails left. This is such an action packed story, it’s fast paced and certainly gets the old heart pumping. It’s one of those books that as soon as you pick it up, it grabs you and swallows you up and doesn’t let go until the very end where you’re spat out and left feeling shaken and totally blown away by what you’ve just read. There’s not many books I can say that about, but Freefall is one of them.
I think it’s quite safe to say I will definitely be recommending Freefall, with its unpredictability and fear factor this really is a must read. It’s quite gruesome in parts and it will certainly send a few shivers down your spine and have you looking over your shoulder. A story that’s very difficult to put down, I found myself up at 3am feeding the baby with one hand and turning the pages with the other totally hooked. A definite thumbs up from me.
