The Fault is a compelling thriller with great characterisation, atmospheric setting and smart twists you don’t see coming.

This is a slow burn thriller with a taut plotline which makes for page-turning reading. The story opens with a dramatic prologue set in the tunnels beneath Gibraltar and then re-starts with chapter one; the reader doesn’t see how the prologue fits until much later in the story, which is effective in building tension. The story centres around Seb an engineer with an ambitious

Oh my!! This was quite a different read with most unexpected twists that had me gaping. The human psyche was thoroughly explored with three flawed characters.

Sebastian, a civil engineer in charge of a project connecting Gibraltar to Africa, fiancée Eva, a deep sea diver, and sister Mimi a 17 year old, lived together in an apartment where an old lady had hung herself. Mimi started liking the downstairs neighbor, a 40-year old man and Sebastian’s mental health started unraveling. Then Mimi went mi

4☆ An Atmospheric, Dark, Twisty Thriller


The Fault is a Twisting and at times Dark and Atmospheric Thriller.

Sebastian an engineer, his partner Eva a diver and his sister Mimi live together in Gibraltar, where Sebastian is working on an important project.

Sebastian is very protective of his younger Sister Mimi, so when she makes friends with one of their neighbours who is much older than her, the extent of his protective nature really creeps through.
It's clear to see Sebastian suffers from mental h

The Fault is mainly set in Gibraltar and tells of Sebastian Luna, his younger sister, Mimi and his fiancé, Eva.

Sebastian is a little full of himself, a designer of land reclamation projects and is working on one in Gibraltar and has moved his family to an apartment so they can all be together. He gets a bit weird about Mimi’s friendship with a neighbour and feels she needs protecting.

Sebastian suffers from insomnia and migraine and this tells of his slow decline to his mental health and it reall

If there's one thing that this Ginger Book Geek likes, it's discovering new authors. Kitty Sewell is definitely a new author for me, but she is an author I will be reading more from. I thoroughly enjoyed reading 'The Fault' but more about that in a bit.
I can't say that I warmed to any of the characters and I certainly didn't like any of them for one reason and another. Sebastian gave me the heebee jeebies because of some of the things he does and says, his obsession with the fact that his sister

The book opens first with someone getting kidnapped. Immediately I am intrigued. Then you get Sebastian's point of view, who I at first was not with. He was cocky and very sure of himself, but he grew on me as his story unfolds. I found Eva's point of view to be a nice change of pace from him while also adding a mysterious level to it. Mimi is immediately my favorite even though I do not approve of her relationship with Carlo Montegriffo, for the simple reason of I didn't trust him. I enjoyed he ...more

Sebastian is a structural engineer. He is renowned for designing the near impossible. His girlfriend Eva is a diver and they have recently moved in together. Sebastian wanted them to get married as they were in Dubai and cohabitation is illegal. Eva doesn’t want to and we know there is a reason but not what- a past relationship is hinted at but nothing more. Eva is troubled by something or someone in her past and wants to tell Sebastian but hasn’t yet found the right moment. Sebastian’s sister M ...more

While I was reading this book, I noticed there are undercurrents of mental illness and death similar to the movie Suddenly Last Summer with Elizabeth Taylor and Montgomery Clift. 

The book is told in three points of view: Sebastian's, Mimi's, and Eva's.

Sebastian is a prominent engineer determined to conquer the world and his ambitious and groundbreaking idea of building a titanic tide-proof cantilevered shelf on the south-east side fo the Rock of Gibraltar may get him in trouble with the locals.

I was born a Swede and, like many wholesome girls, spent my adolescent years crazed with love of horses.
When I was 13, my parents sold their farm in rural Sweden and on a whim moved to the Canary Islands. From one day to the next the horses were gone and I was living in Franco’s Spain. There was a German school, the only one which offered a reasonable education, so I had no choice but to become an
