    Brilliant Thriller

    Jessamine has everything she could ask for. A great career as a radio host, a loving daughter, and caring friends but that is about to change when she is approached by a young lady asking for help to find her missing friend. Intrigued by the details Jessamine sets about finding the answers with the help of her listeners and colleagues. What she finds along the way is not what she is prepared for. The Dangerous Kind focuses on two people, one from the past and one from the present. As the story develops you find yourself trying to figure out what links these two people together which to me, made the plot a lot more interesting. The layout of the book made it very easy knowing which time-frame you were reading about, avoiding any unnecessary confusion, with the chapters very clearly marked. The Dangerous Kind is a well-written story, I found myself drawn in every time I picked the book up and I enjoyed learning more about each of the characters and their lives as the book progressed. Throughout the story, I tried to figure out where our missing person could be and who may have done what. I am usually quite good at figuring things out and although I guessed some parts correctly I did not figure out the full story making this book pleasantly unpredictable. I often become frustrated if I finish a story and still have many unanswered questions, luckily that was not the case with this book as it was wrapped up nicely. I believe the author has written another book previously, and after reading this one I will happily go out and buy it.

    A little forgettable

    Journalist Jessamine works hosts a radio show on ‘Potentially Dangerous People’, but when she is presented with a case to look into by a listener her life changes in ways she could not predict. The Dangerous Kind should have been my kind of book. It’s dark and gritty with a lot of threads and characters in the build up to a crime thriller. However, I have to say it took me a few weeks to write a review on it after finishing it and I still don’t really know what to say – apart from the controversial pop culture reference towards the end that I was not expecting I just found it a little forgettable. The strands of the story also seemed to take far too long to come together – it was getting to near 80% of the book and I had no idea how everything was going to work out. Rowenna’s perspective is interesting and heart breaking but oddly seems too focussed on other aspects of her life than the one that ends up being most important – I understand the idea of a red herring but this was perhaps a little much. I love the idea of the ‘Potentially Dangerous Person’ angle – it reminded me of The Minority Report but felt it was too underused in the actual story. Overall The Dangerous Kind is an interesting crime thriller but didn’t really excite me in the way other books in this genre have before. Thank you to NetGalley & Bonnier Zaffre for a chance to read the ARC in exchange for an honest review.
