On Cape Three Points is a thriller which follows Lewis Penn, a London lawyer, as he desperately tries to fix a mistake, sending him into a downward spiral.

The blurb looked great, a lawyer getting mixed up with the wrong sort, a dash across the atlantic and running from dark unknown forces. Unfortunately the story itself was big let down. It essentially, in my eyes, centred on one mistake being compunded by another and then another sending the main character into more and more desperate decisions

Recommends it for: thriller fans
So weird- the first 100 pages.. I couldn't stop reading I was so enthralled. It managed to be both exciting and somehow believable. The rest was.. boring. And it took me over a week to finish. Overall, this failed to be more than just a thriller. And I'm not a thriller-fan so it didn't much strike my fancy.

There is a point in this book when you've got to make a decision as to whether you go with it or leave it. If you go with it, you do get sucked in and the relentless flow then has got you. That's why it ended up with four stars - there is depth below the basic story rather than it being a standard thriller.
