What if your new best friend is really a deadly enemy?
When Isabel Anderson nearly runs over mysterious Alicia McBride, she is ridden with guilt. She helps Alicia get a job at the supermarket where she works, and soon, Alicia is acting like her new best friend. But then strange fires start to break out all over the small seaside town of Queensbeach, including at the caravan park where Alicia is staying. Isabel suspects Alicia knows more than she’s letting on and grows increasingly nervous when her friend Deacon invites Alicia to stay with him. But it’s Isabel the police suspect.
Determined to confront Alicia, Isabel bursts into her room and sees the word ‘FRY’ branded across her back in capital letters. From then on, she sees the word “FRY’ everywhere she goes; in graffiti, on toilet walls, even on car registration plates. Then her beloved cat, Fluffy disappears and Isabel is convinced Alicia is behind it. She puts up posters all over her neighbourhood, but as fast as she puts them up, someone takes them down. Soon, a whole spate of fires is breaking out and Isabel must stay one step ahead of the flames and the police. In order to survive, she must question her own innocence, her sanity and the very fabric of her morality. Can she win back Deacon? And will she ever find Fluffy?
FRY is a fast-paced psychological thriller in the tradition of Sophie Hannah and Julia Crouch.
Quite brilliant. Fast-moving, action-packed, subtle and slaps you round the face from start to finish. We all make the odd mistake now and then, but for most of us, it doesn’t come back and bite you on the bum many years later. The halo of innocence above Lorna’s villain is held so firmly in place that our luckless leading lady is left doubting her own sanity. The reader is also left doubting her sanity to the point that nothing falls into place until the very last page. Who is the twisted fire starter? I am the slowest reader in Britain, but raced through Fry in just two days. A gripping read, which I thoroughly recommend to readers of all ages.
loved this book! kept me at the edge of my seat the whole time. haven’t enjoyed a suspenseful fiction like this in a long time! highly recommend.
