SHOW-OFF AND TELL #17 - Shannon Kirk - Method 15/33

#17 In the Show-Off And Tell comes from a lady some of you may not be familiar with, Shannon Kirk. It’s her debut novel Method 15/33.

This is without doubt one of the greatest thrillers I have read in years. It is a fresh approach to the plot subject of kidnapping, seeing things from the point of view of the victim and believe me, the kidnappers are the ones who need to be scared in this one!

I gushed and gushed about this one when I reviewed it and to me, it is the perfect example of how perusing through the many publishers on NetGalley can be to your benefit. Every now and again you come across one you would never have seen otherwise and just occasionally, you will pick up an absolute gem like this one.

I was over the moon when Shannon said she would send a copy of this over after I obviously couldn’t get to one of her signing events. I wasn’t expecting this beautiful hardback copy in the post but was very touched by the message and even more appreciative of Shannon’s generosity!
