Publisher: Hot Banana Press
Release Date: November 19, 2020
Genre: Adult Fiction / Psychological Thriller
The international bestselling author of Her and The Social Affair returns with another suspenseful thriller that very well could be set in the house next door.
Jack Mooney, a career criminal, has been in prison for nearly a decade, quietly nursing his hatred for the jurors who put him there. One in particular gets him through the endless days—the alluring Amy Stone.
When Mooney is granted early release, he makes Amy his first priority. To his delight, she’s even more enticing than before, and better still, she has a lot more to lose than he’d imagined.
As Mooney’s campaign of terror mounts, the police seem powerless to protect the Stone family, who must rely on their wits to survive a psychopath hell-bent on revenge.
I am pretty sure Savage Row: A Psychological Thriller is the most sophisticated Britney King novel yet! I read it slower than her other books but not because it wasn’t good and action packed, but because it felt more complex vocabulary-wise than others I have read. As with any King book, I was hooked from the beginning and had no idea what was going to happen. While a part of the end wasn’t really a surprise, there was still plenty that was shocking, and it is definitely a one-sitting type of book which is a thing I love about this author’s books. It was dark and gritty, but I thought it was a TINY bit tamer than other books I have read by King which really surprised me.
Savage Row has quite a few characters that are suspicious, and I loved the different viewpoints which also make you wonder who the bad guy is. King really does know how to write a psychological thriller and I am never disappointed. This was another winner and is going near the top of my favorites by her. I don’t want to give too much away, and I would recommend going into this one blind, so I would say just read it and see what you think!
Thank you to the author for providing me with a review copy of this book! All opinions and thoughts are my own.
