He’s haunted by the memory of a kidnapping case gone wrong…
Not wanting history to repeat itself, Detective Matt Brady struggles to solve the disappearances of seven young women, but he quickly finds himself pitted against a criminal organization that knows as much about police procedure as he does—an organization that will do whatever it takes to stay one step ahead of him. His troubles are compounded when a young veterinarian injects herself into the investigation and is targeted to become victim number eight. When he tries to protect her, he finds himself in the crosshairs of a professional cop killer. Can Brady solve the case in time to save his new love, or will this investigation be the death of both of them?
Cornered is a brilliantly written, compelling thriller that is clever and action packed full of many thrilling twists and turns. It is a story that kept me compelled and guessing until the very end; I was so compelled by this novel that one evening I woke up at 3 in the morning to start reading it again! I have not done this since Gone Girl and the people who follow me on here know that Gone Girl is my favourite thriller of all time so when I say it is in the same league then it must be good! Here is a little bit more about this exciting novel.
Our novel follows Detective Matt Brady on his journey to solve a horrendous crime however he is struggling as this is an extremely difficult case. Detective Brady who works at the Temple City Police Department must try and find out why seven young women have been abducted and most importantly how he can save them and bring them to safety. These women have been abducted but no ransom notes have been left, no bodies have been found, no evidence has been found and lastly there are no clues to aid Brady with his case. Brady is up against the clock and although he is struggling to produce results it will not stop him and his determination to find out what or who is behind these abductions before another woman sadly goes missing and so begins this brilliant novel Cornered.
Cornered is a gripping, chilling story and parts of it chilled me to my core. Without spoiling much about this novel, this novel focuses heavily on human trafficking; human trafficking is an important subject and a matter which is happening all around the world today although it is very rarely talked about. Sure, Taken the movie explored it and that is a great theme but the real world is a little different and it is a horrible act. That is why I really appreciate how the author wrote about the subject with such dignity and respect. He also wrote about it in a very informative way which was not full of just facts so I really appreciate how the author done this and has informed his readers eloquently about the subject.
The story of Cornered is a thrilling one and the whole way through I was kept guessing about how the novel would turn out. Not once was this novel predictable and that is something which I always love when I read a thriller. It’s story intrigued me and fascinated me the whole way through and all of these things combined make it an incredible thriller story!
Our author Alan Brenham is a terrific writer and his work is extremely well-written. His story-line was engaging and even more so because the author has experience in law enforcement so it was incredible to be inside a writers mind who has had experience himself.
Cornered is a novel that is full of heart-pounding action packed moments and these thrilling moments begin on the very first page and never once does the tension let up. This is thanks to Brenham’s incredible writing, I adored how he decided to throw the reader in at the deep end straight away, it was incredible because I was immersed so early on and that never usually happens with thriller novels. Another thing I loved about the authors style of writing was how he took the reader on a journey and has the reader spend an equal amount of time with the story’s villains and heroes which was interesting because the story ends up focusing more on the people of the police department rather than the criminal acts being committed; This is very unique and incredibly brilliant!
To conclude my thoughts on Cornered if you are looking for an engaging, brilliant, genius, heart-pounding, thrilling read then this novel is definitely for you! This terrific novel gets Four Stars from me!
