Concealment by Rose Edmunds is a thriller set in a world of high finance. The premise can be related to a corrupt political office setting handling procurement. Corporate fraud is rampant in such offices. It is the same case in this mystery twist.
Amy Robinson is an intelligent partner in a large financial firm called Pearson Malone. She is a girl who has it all. Clothes, a good house and a job. Her personality seems well put together but deep down she has deep secrets. Her world shatters when her co-worker, who holds a lot of the company's information is murdered. She suspects that her new boss is the merciless killer. From there on, her every move is watched by her boss as she tries to figure out the mystery killer. He even makes her look foolish in front of her colleagues. Amy's space becomes invaded by unkown people. People from her present and her past that she burried in her dark secrets. Amy is a master in concealing her past. Her career is threatened by her boss or maybe someone else who she doesn't know. It may be friends or foes. She can't go down without a fight. Amy Robinson is determined to find out the answers.
Concealment focuses on conspiracy, secrets, betrayal and paranoia. Amy is betrayed by people closest to her. People she thought she could trust. Her boss makes her question her sanity and she is paranoid at times. Her colleagues and clients conspire against her and it's heartbreaking. They want her fired. Everything Amy think she knows is untrue or maybe it's her boss all over again manipulating her psychology. Can she ever trust anyone in her life?
To start with, Concealment is written in first person which is a wise choice. This writing style makes it easy for the reader to empathize with Amy. The plot is amazing and the writing is flawless. Character development is on another level. The characters are amazing in whatever role they are given. I connected with Amy immediately. One person I disliked is Lisa. A dangerous friend. The book is fast-paced, which I like. It takes you into action sooner.
The author did an awesome job in maintaining the reader's attention throughout. The suspense was built up and maintained until the end. I got hooked into the book and I couldn't put it down.
I had a challenge in the first chapter. There were financial terms that I didn't understand. I will have to concentrate hard in order to understand them. This was not much a bother to me and it shouldn't be to you. The book still begins at a cracking pace and soon it gets you hooked.
I didn't encounter any errors in grammar or punctuation. The author must be a perfectionist. Her editing team did a recommendable job in achieving this. I rate this book a 4 out of 4 stars. This novel will appeal to anyone who loves financial thrillers. You will still enjoy this gem even if you are not interested in high finance. I did enjoy reading this book. It is next to perfect and action packed.
