Concealment by Rose Edmunds is truly a compelling psychological thriller. Amy, the lead character works at Pearson Malone, an accounting firm in the UK. She holds a significant position in the firm but is surrounded by seniors and colleagues who are not very true or loyal in the real sense. Her just senior Ed Smithies is disliked by Amy a lot due to his hypocritical and cunning behavior and is always on her radar for the mishappening around the place.
Amy has a past life and some psychological issues which she has always tried to hide, though it acts as a burden throughout her life. Even in her married life with Greg, one of her colleagues she faced unwanted situations due to the secrecy of her earlier life. The marriage did not last long.
Amy is financially and socially a strong character. But amidst everything, there is always a state of discomfort and mistrust lingering in her life. As the story moves forward, there are circumstances related to murder and betrayal in her workplace. Amy has to tackle the situation and Rose Edmund does a brilliant job of portraying a character that is not going to give up so easily.
The instances in the story along with the main character and the other characters had been laid very well and will keep you on the edge, rightfully as per the genre – a compelling psychological thriller. You will be on the edge all the time since you don't know the truth till the end. You need to have this read to plunge into the suspense and enjoy this book.
I loved the character of Amy who is strongly determined to pull off the curtains to expose the culprits along with facing her own daemons. I have nothing negative to say about this thriller novel which intrigued me until I finished reading it.
I rate this book 4 out of 4. There are no such grammatical or typo errors; the book has been edited professionally. This book will entertain anyone who loves a story full of suspense and a strong central character dealing with it.
Concealment is somewhere inspired by the true life of the author Rose Edmunds who has earlier worked as an undercover officer. No doubt, she has delivered a perfect thriller which I guess could also be made as a nice suspense movie. Hat’s off to Rose Edmunds. This is the first book in the Crazy Amy series; all my best wishes to the author for the next book titled Exposure. Hopefully, it will also take over the legacy and be equally compelling and a page-turner.
