Nowadays the complex structures of the businesses and the state policies do have some inherent loopholes in them, and some fraud people try to exploit these loopholes to make easy money. One instance of such exploitation is depicted in this book Concealment by Rose Edmunds. This book is a psychological thriller having a dramatically intense plot. The main character in this story is Amy who is an employee of an accounting firm. Amy grows up from a troublesome childhood losing her father when she was a kid. Later she is brought up by her mother who suffered from a mental sickness of hoarding things at home and making it clumsy.

Hoarding problem at home creates a gap of understanding between Amy and her mother, and as a result, she lives far away from her mother and blames her for that. Moreover, it affects her career also in some way. Amy has problems with her marriage as her spouse leaves her and marries another young age woman. Amy also has a stressful time at her work because of one of the clients of her company turns out to be a fraudster, and she lands into lots of troubles when her subordinates lose their lives in a scandal by a fraud client. The story continues with Amy's struggle in figuring out the problem.

I enjoyed the reading as the plot was captivating and each scene was creating some curiosity about the next one because the developments were not predictable, and there were several twists in the story. The emotional expressions and body language were in detail, which gave a feeling of actually me being there. I was amazed by the depiction of the corporate environment, and in that the dialogues were precise to the point without any unnecessary stuff.

I am glad that the author has chosen the befitting title as concealment to this story because literally, the problems arise due to the hiding of facts and this story is a good example. There was nothing for me to dislike in this book, as everything was quite good and reasonable. I feel this book will suit most of the readers and it is a purely an entertaining book.

I read the entire book in one stretch and felt glued to the suspense of the plot that created the curiosity of knowing what happens next. The flow of the book was smooth enough, which help me to turn the pages quickly, even though I had to refer to dictionary couple of times. There were rarely any grammatical errors or difficult words to understand the meaning. Considering all of the above I am glad to rate this book with all the 4 out of 4 stars and recommend this book for others.

Sounds like an interesting thriller. I'm curious if she's crazy or driving herself crazy. Great review!

I am very fond of when authors pay close attention to a characters body language and paints a vivid picture that depicts the mood. I can't wait to see the twists and turns of this story.

Thank you for your review. I wonder whether the book goes in depth into the hoarding disorder? I haven't come across a book yet that has a character with a hoarding problem.
