A great first novel

This book isn't the usual genre i read but I thought I would give it a go. The first couple of chapters i thought were a bit slow but I stuck with it and it turned out to be a really good book, in fact I read It in a day. It was interesting to read the story from the two perspectives and i look forward to reading the second book. I would recommend this book to people who like this genre or anyone who just wants to read a good book.

So this is a debut novel, wow! So you would have heard of the commotion about this one, it is effectively one story but in two books AND it is told from a dual perspective. What is not to like?

Well nothing, I loved it all! Part one of the story is about Tom, his life and how he became to be on the hunt of the actress known to us as L.G. His story is of someone who is struggling to keep his head above water, in a life he is not entirely sure he wanted, then a devasting event happened forcing him
