A good thriller has the power to leave you breathless on the edge of your seat, gripping the book with whitened knuckles as your eyes frantically skim through page after tense page. Thrillers are all about involving you with the story, connecting reader, writer and characters in an exciting web of words that always keeps you coming back for more. And it is precisely this delicately balanced relationship that only the most proficient of wordsmiths have the ability to successfully pull off, making the reader watch with bated breath as the different threads of the story are expertly weaved together. 

Such is the life of the expert thriller writer; such is the experience the reader gets from this book.

I Know Where She Is is a thriller of the highest order, an excellent example of writing which offers the perfect blend of setting, storyline and fully-fledged characters. Many other books in this genre often find themselves struggling to achieve this equilibrium, with the writer spending so much time focusing on one or two aspects that the all-important third point gets overlooked. However, all three are balanced beautifully within this novel.

S.B. Caves' writing is perfectly suited to tell the story of these characters, keeping the plot going at a steady pace as we learn more and more throughout. It's interesting, it's involving, but most of all, it's engaging. Put simply, this book is everything that you want to read when you pick a thriller up off the shelf. 

Twisting, turning, and most definitely packing a killer punch, I Know Where She Is makes the perfect read to get stuck into this summer. Whether you are relaxing poolside, sunning it up in an exotic destination or simply looking for the ideal accompaniment to your morning coffee on a rainy Sunday back home in the great British summer, this is sure to be the book for you.
