Girl on Fire by Tony Parsons – Book Review


OMG Wow! Just wow!

This story felt so close to reality because events like this are sadly common place in this day and age.  On more than one occasion parts of the book gave me goose bumps, it certainly evoked an emotional response from me.

Saying that I thoroughly enjoyed it, it was emotional, sad, happyand devastating in places, it had it all and that’s why I think it was such a good book.  OMG that ending, Nooooooo!

I feel quite exhausted after reading Girl on Fire, I need to have a rest to let my heart rate get back to normal.  There was non-stop action throughout the book that didn’t let up, I just had to keep turning pages to see what was going to happen next.  I read the book pretty quickly as I had a really hard job putting it down, it was the type of book to keep you up late because you don’t want to stop reading.

The book also made me think a lot about the world we are living in today.

This is only my second book I have read by Tony Parsons and I will definitely be reading more, this book deserves the 5 stars that I am going to give it, it is a really great piece of writing, I highly recommend it.

Here is the publishers blurb on the book:

ALMOST HOME. BUT NOWHERE TO HIDE. From the number one bestselling crime-writer comes a brilliant, page-turning new DC Max Wolfe thriller.

‘Remarkably moving’ The Times

When terrorists use a drone to bring down a plane on one of London’s busiest shopping centres, it ignites a chain of events that will draw in the innocent and guilty alike.

DC Max Wolfe finds himself caught in the crossfire in a city that seems increasingly dangerous and hostile.

But does the danger come from the murderous criminals that Max is tracking down? Or the people he’s trying to protect?

Or does the real threat to Max lie closer to home?
