The Escape by Hannah Jayne
Published: July 7th 2015 by Sourcebooks Fire
When two boys walk into the woods, and one comes out covered in blood, what would you believe?
Fletcher and Adam venture into the woods for an afternoon hike, but when day turns into night and neither boy returns, their town is thrown into turmoil. Avery, the detective’s daughter, is the one to find Fletcher—dishelved, disoriented, and covered in blood.
He has no memory of what happened, but Avery can’t shake the feeling that something’s off. When Adam’s body is finally found, Avery is determined to uncover the truth. But if she stands by her gut, and Fletcher, is she standing by a friend, or a murderer?
The answer might cost her her life.
This was a very fast read, the same delicious flavour of the much loved Fear Street and Goosebumps series’ by R.L Stine. A quick paced murder mystery with a surprising twist. I thought I had solved the puzzle and predicted the ending and I found myself pleasantly surprised, and albeit, a bit shocked.
This is my second read from this author and I must say she has certainly stepped up her storytelling to new levels. I cannot wait to read more of her work.
A great book to cozy up to with the fast approaching chilling fall nights (yay, for autumn)
