From the bestselling author of Lies  comes 29 Seconds, a sensational new thriller that explores what happens when a split second thought of revenge takes on a life of its own.

“Give me one name. One person. And I will make them disappear.”

Sarah is a young professor struggling to prove herself in a workplace controlled by the charming and manipulative Alan Hawthorne, a renowned scholar and television host. The beloved professor rakes in million-dollar grants for the university where Sarah works—so his inappropriate treatment of female colleagues behind closed doors has gone unchallenged for years. And Sarah is his newest target.

When Hawthorne's advances become threatening, she’s left with nowhere to turn. Until the night she witnesses an attempted kidnapping of a young child on her drive home, and impulsively jumps in to intervene. The child’s father turns out to be a successful businessman with dangerous connections—and her act of bravery has put this powerful man in her debt. He lives by his own brutal code, and all debts must be repaid. In the only way he knows how. The man gives Sarah a burner phone and an unbelievable offer. A once-in-a-lifetime deal that can make all her problems disappear.

No consequences. No traces. No chance of being found out. All it takes is a 29-second phone call.

Because everyone has a name to give. Don’t they?


My thoughts about 29 Seconds ~~

(I love to note the first lines of the books I'm reading. First lines can really grab a reader's attention and I love seeing where the author takes the reader after their first lines.)

First line—"There were three conditions. She had seventy-two hours to provide a name. If she said no, the offer disappeared. Forever. And if she said yes, there was no going back, no changing her mind."

This book blew me away! There was so much going on in Sarah's life. Alan, one of the professors in her department, was pure evil. It was unbelievable what he put Sarah, and all those other women in the past, through. It's no wonder she wanted to make him suffer and rid the world of him. 

As an intricate web is woven around her, Sarah's life spins out of control. This book had me on the edge of my seat worrying about her and wondering what was going to happen next. I found myself reading as fast as I could as I raced to the surprising conclusion. I loved it!! 

I received an ARC of 29 Seconds and this is my honest opinion of the book.
