THE JUMP DOUG JOHNSTONE

A MUST BUY MUST READ!

YOU CAN DO ANYTHING, IF YOU HAVE NOTHING LEFT TO LOSE
Struggling to come to terms with the suicide of her teenage son, Ellie lives in the shadows of the Forth Road Bridge, lingering on its footpaths and swimming in the waters below. One day she talks down another suicidal teenager, Sam, and sees for herself a shot at redemption, the chance to atone for her son’s death.
But even with the best intentions she can’t foresee the situation she’s falling headlong into a troubled family with some dark secrets of their own.
From the best-selling author of Gone Again, The Jump is a hugely moving contemporary thriller, and a stunning portrait of an unlikely heroine.
My review
 A must buy must read. First class brilliant psychological thriller. Just totally unputdownable. The story is very unusual being a fascinating plot. Expect unexpected twist and turns in two families that are full of surprises. The characters are caught up in a world that is harsh and trembles with tender emotions as Ellie struggles to comes to terms with the suicide of her only son. Ellie finds another boy who is going to jump of a bridge and manages to talk him out of committing suicide. Nothing is farfetched as Ellie finds out she is heading into another family with some dark secrets. Doug Johnstone is brilliant at writing crime novels he knows how to tap into readers to make them feel deep dark fear. I am now a huge fan of Doug Johnstone and will certainly read his other novels.
