Michel Bussi's 'After the Crash' was an International Best Seller which had a unique theme.I had reviewed it here, sometime back. 'Don't Let Go' is another gem from this French story teller which has enough twists and turns to surprise you.
Marshal Bellion and Liane Bellion are on a holiday in the reunion Island with their Six year old daugher, Josapha Bellion. But Liane Bellion suddenly disappers and the blood stains in the room makes Marshal Bellion a potential suspect. Soon after,the police digs up Marshal's blotted past and are quite convinced that he is the killer. Finding himself cornered, Marshall decides to go underground with Josapha. But if Marshal is not really the killer, why does he appear so guilty? Don't Let Go is Marshal's race against time and is all about his attempts to escape from the Police with his beloved daughter by his side.
Don't Let Go is the kind of book which rightly deserves a screen adaptation. It's such a visual experience and almost every chapter ends up with a cliff-hanger.The narrative is so fast paced that an average reader can finish it in one or two sittings.The book is definitely more fast paced and enteraining when compared to 'After the Crash' and 'Black Water Lillies'.
On the downside, the book is not devoid of illogical twists either. The scene in which Christo recognises the killer's handwriting on the windowpane was a bit of a stretch.
On the whole,I 'm giving a four out of Five for this thriller.
