Ferociously entertaining while also being pointedly thought-provoking, this novel pierces the dark side of social media and entitlement. Erin travels to France and after failing to find her influencer sister at her chateau, reports her missing, but the village has closed ranks and she struggles to discover the truth about her disappearance. Author Ruth Kelly has created a fascinating setting into which she has placed a tantalising and tense plot. The timeline fractures travelling between various moments in the past and the present, it also darts between the two sisters, and social media and news updates. This constant unpredictable movement ensured that I hovered over a razor-sharp edge of suspense. I treated each new arrival with suspicion and was on constant alert. The chateau itself joins the darkness, creating a foreboding sense of uncertainty. Running alongside the tension, the clever story acts as its own influencer, allowing you to feel the absorbing obsession, which is why it has been chosen as a Liz Pick of the month. The Escape, so fiery, intense, and provocative is a meaningful yet riotously good read.
