The Hit List HOLLY SEDDON

(TRAPEZE, £7.99) One year ago, Marianne’s husband Greg died in a tragic accident. On the anniversar­y of his death, she finds comfort in his belongings, desperatel­y clinging on to everything he left behind. During her trip down memory lane, she switches on his laptop and an icon catches her eye – a browser to the dark web. In an attempt to discover why her late husband had access to this dangerous world, she stumbles across a leaked hit list – and her name is on it. How well did she really know Greg? And was his death really an accident after all? Switching between the narrative of assassin Sam and target Marianne, The Hit List is a fast-paced thriller full of twists and turns, as we, along with the characters, untangle the web of lies that they have got themselves stuck in. ★★★★
