BOOK TOUR: Remember My Name by Sam Blake

“If she’d turned off her phone, instead of listening in, perhaps no one would have died…”

Published earlier this month, Remember My Name by Sam Blake follows Cressida Howard who, after catching her entrepreneur husband playing away from home, hires security expert Brioni to get the evidence she needs for a speedy and financially rewarding divorce. But what Brioni uncovers goes beyond simple infidelity. Because Laurence Howard is also in bed with some very dangerous people. Bribery and blackmail are the least of his worries as someone comes after the women in his life – someone who is out to destroy Laurence and his empire, whatever the cost. And Cressida and her teenage daughter could soon be collateral damage if she and Brioni don’t act fast.

Rating:

Today is my stop on the Random Things Tours book tour for this book. Thank you to Random Things Tours and Atlantic Books for a free advanced copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

With a contemporary and fresh approach, Remember My Name is a well-written and pacey thriller that follows a path laden with greed, blackmail, and deceit.

Led by strong female characters, it’s a solid crime book that takes many unexpected twists. The only thing that has stopped me from rating this book higher is that I prefer my thrillers to be more psychological rather than so business heavy, so I did find the start a little slow as it took a while to kick into action.

But this is only about personal preference as I tend to lose focus when the action revolves around money rather than more disturbing factors. And when characters are unlikeable, I want to still be drawn to them because of their mental instabilities, which is harder to do when characters are too selfish and self-indulgent to be more engaging.

The final few chapters of the book, however, really gripped my attention, and I think this would make a brilliant TV series as Blake has developed a really strong story. I will definitely be reading more by this author, especially as I see that she has written a few creepier books which I think will definitely be more to my taste.
