This is my review of the book Caught in the Light by Robert Goddard, which I have read recently.
To date I have always enjoyed reading Robert's books and choose to read this book for that reason. Fortunately this did not disappoint, but rather increase my appreciation for Roberts skill in writing.
The cover of the book has the quote “This is his best book yet” and I would not disagree. It seems as if every chapter revealed a set of facts only to be overturned completely in the next chapter. I am not sure how Robert manages to do it, but he does and produces an exciting credible enjoyable story at the same time.
Anyway enough of that down to some “so called” facts about the story. Our hero is one Ian Jarrett, who is a professional photographer on assignment in Vienna. Where he meets as if by chance a beautiful lady Marian Esguard and falls for her. So much so that he decides to leave his wife, who is back in England and live with Marian.
But from then on things do not go quite as planned nor are they as they seem. It is not giving away too much to say that Marian does not turn up when she should and in fact vanishes. Ian then starts to search for her and the mystery unfolds.
A great book to read, quite hard to put down. This was book 43 week 30 fiction 41 (12 on audio) non fiction 2
