Review - Sharp Glass by Sarah Hilary

Sharp Glass by Sarah Hilary
Publisher: Pan Macmillan
Release date: 11 July 2024
Back cover blurb: The last thing she remembers is standing outside the empty house. One she was employed to pack, ready for removal. Her job is her life. It is her compulsion to take care of an owner’s precious possessions, to do whatever it takes to help them move on. Now she is cold, dirty, damp, trapped in its cellar with no chance of escape, miles from anywhere. His prisoner. And then he returns. Her captor believes she holds the answers to why a young girl was murdered a year ago. He refuses to let her go until she reveals her secrets. But he doesn’t know she has hidden depths, and an anger she works hard to control. The battle lines are drawn. They are the only two people who can solve the mystery of the dead girl, but when the truth is revealed whose life will shatter…?

Sarah Hilary just gets better and better. She has always written in a thrilling style designed to lead you up a twisty garden path. Sharp Glass is no exception.

Professional packer Grace Maddox accepts a job that she knows very little about, primarily because she needs the money. 

As she approaches the large in the middle of nowhere, in the dead of night, she wonders if she has made a mistake.

When she wakes in the cellar after suffering a head injury at the hands of a complete stranger, she knows that she has. 

What does he want? 

Is he going to kill her? 

Apparently not. He says he wants answers, but Grace doesn't know what he wants from her.

Or does she?

Daniel Roake, respectable Ophthalmologist is the midst of a nervous breakdown. 

He can't even remember why he is holding Grace hostage, but he knows he must let her go. Days after he first captured her, he tries to do just that. But the tables are turned when Grace retaliates and wants to know everything he knows.

She is sure that he knows something about the murder of a young girl whose bedroom she had to pack for a grieving family. But she doesn't know exactly what. And she is determined to find out. 

No matter what the cost...

Sharp Glass is available to pre-order now via Amazon and all good book shops.

Thank You to the publishers who approved my request via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
