Release Day! The Prisoner by B.A. Paris ~ My Thoughts #ThePrisoner @baparisauthor @StMartinsPress

Happy Release Day!

Congrats B. A.
on the release today of
The Prisoner!

The Prisoner by B.A. Paris
Psychological Thriller, 288 pages
Published November 1, 2022 by St. Martin's Press

With Behind Closed Doors, New York Times bestselling author B. A. Paris took the psychological thriller to shocking new heights. Now she’ll hold you captive with The Prisoner—a stunning new thriller about one woman wed into a family with deadly intentions.

Amelie has always been a survivor, from losing her parents as a child in Paris to making it on her own in London. As she builds a life for herself, she is swept up into a glamorous lifestyle where she married the handsome billionaire Ned Hawthorne.

But then, Amelie wakes up in a pitch-black room, not knowing where she is. Why has she been taken? Who are her mysterious captors? And why does she soon feel safer here, imprisoned, than she had begun to feel with her husband Ned?

In the vein of Behind Closed Doors and The Therapist, multimillion-copy bestseller B. A. Paris is back with a gripping new suspense novel.

My thoughts about The Prisoner ~~

(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 line.)

First line—"I sense the shift of air beneath my nose a millisecond before something—thick, sticky tape—is clamped over my mouth, silencing the scream that would have ripped from me."

B.A. Paris has done it again! Her words grabbed me from the very first line, and held me captive until the very last page. I am continually amazed at the suspense and drama she can create.

Amelie wakes up and finds herself in a completely dark room with only a mattress. She can't see a thing and doesn't understand why she is in that situation. I would be totally freaked out. She stays calm, cool, and collected and plans her escape. But hold up, it's not going to be that easy! 

I felt the intensity and fear right along with her and couldn't wait for her to escape her prison. But she quickly realizes that she might be safer in her dark, little room than out in the big, cold world. So intense!! 

If you are a fan of psychological thrillers, I highly recommend The Prisoner. It will keep you on the edge of your seat to the end. And if you are a fan of the author, this story will not disappoint. It is amazing!

I received a copy of The Prisoner from the publisher via NetGalley and this is my honest opinion.
