She does everything possible in order to uncover the truth behind the murder of her co-worker. Follow the thrilling adventure of Amy in finding the truth behind everything in Concealment by Rose Edmunds.
I find the storyline really interesting as it focuses on betrayal and conspiracy. I liked how the author created Amy with a complex behavior and personality in which it added mystery and thrill into the novel. Even her boss was hateful and hating the character is an indication that the author did a great job in representing it as an antagonist. The author also did a great job of setting up the world the characters reside and she managed to maintain the reader’s attention all throughout the story. I also find it good that Amy has a strong personality in which she’s not afraid to take matters on her own.
One thing the book taught its readers that there’s no perfect corporate world and corruption is rampant to any type of business or firm. All of the characters are adequately presented in the story and the chapters are comprehensive which makes it easy to understand and follow. I specifically liked how it is narrated in the first-person point of view as this makes me immense in the story deeply.
The book is an excellent combination of psychological thriller, murder, mystery, and crime. The mystery element of the book was created in such a way that the book is very hard to predict with so much twist and turns. Overall, I rate the book 4 out of 4 stars as I really enjoyed the plot and how it managed to make me read it until the end. This book is recommended to readers who love mystery or crime novels.
