I received a copy of the audible from the author for a honest review Overall I enjoyed the book; however I would give a two star for few reasons 1 The title of the book mentions psychological thriller; however the book reads like a cozy mystery with a twist in the end In my opinion a little twist in the end does not label the book as psychological thriller 2 The narrator has a gentle British voice that suits a cozy mystery genre but not a psychological thriller If the genre was leaning towards mystery I would have gladly given a rating of 3 stars 3 The plot was interesting where it starts from searching for his biological mother to escaping the paradise island where his mother lives The first half of the book is rather boring I wondered if it had been accidentally mislabeled and was not a mystery Still I read on Action picked up in the last uarter of the book What a waste of my timeSee aboveit is a book but certainly not a good read I stupidly tried to read it Never again There are better books to readI have read better books incest is just not my thing Would not recommend this book to anyone to read Beyond ickyI did not like the book I disliked everything about the plot I would not recommend it to anyone Yuck This book started out somewhat interesting and as it progressed it seemed to slow down and the story line was just creepy TerribleThis is one of the worst books I have ever endured It is poorly written and the entire plot is ridiculous I got hookedIt was easy to get drawn into this story but geez What a horrible let down The last uarter of this book was just plain silly The absolute worst book ever Enough said A Dangerous Secret by Peter Martin did not impress me as far as believability in several plot points Garry Flynn got a phone call from his mother reuesting help She was near death Although he responded in time to hear her last words the death was inevitable But the words she spoke to him just prior to death were explosive She told Garry that she was not his birth mother Garry had no memories of a mother before Doris Flynn but since he had never expected he was adopted this was logical Garry and wife Delia lived according to their means; they were not wealthy but they were able to pay their bills All this changed after a reading of Doris’s will Garry and Delia would have no further worries about money They would not have to work for the rest of their livesEnter my first area of disbelief Garry decides that he must find his birth mother This becomes his paramount concern They visit an uncle that Garry remembers from a one time meeting in his youth The uncle claims family estrangement and can’t help Garry He encourages Garry to forget it Delia agrees I agree with Delia But Nothing will stop Garry Uncle Alan did mention that Doris and husband had gone on vacation to the West Indies Garry decides to seek information there while on vacation Delia decides to shopGarry and Delia arrive in the West Indies with Garry looking for information and Delia looking for fun Garry spends time looking for adoption records birth and death records and newspaper articles Delia shops Some “old timer” at a newspaper overhears Garry’s uestions and volunteers to meet him late at night in a restaurant where he will supply information Garry shows up for the meeting No old guy When he tried to find where the senior informant lived he found that his informer had abruptly left the area Delia advised him to forget it I am a fan of DeliaYet another person Isaac claimed to have information but would only talk to Garry personally This reuired Garry and Delia to take another vacation It was lucky for them that they had inherited money The two arrived to find that Isaac had decided not to talk to them Delia was happy to shop But not Garry They found Isaac’s house but thugs guarding the place warned them off They would never talk to Isaac Delia was ready to shopYet another letter arrived at their hotel promising them Isaac had changed his mind and would meet him at a hotel the next day and reveal all This did not happen Charlene purporting to be a friend of Isaac’s met Garry and Delia at the hotel and offered to fly Garry Delia Tom son and wife Jane Cassie daughter and husband Chris and grandson Adam to a remote island where only superrich lived Garry’s mother was one of them and she wanted to meet the entire family of the son she had abandoned The second area of my disbelief arrives Why would anyone along with their family accept such a blind offer? Why was I still reading this incredibly slow novel? Already at the 45% point nothing had happened except affirmations from Garry that he wanted to see his birth mother and suggestions from Delia that it was not all that important Incredible to believe Garry and extended family agree to fly on a private charter to a remote island to meet with unidentified people All would be explained when they arrived But it wasn’tThe slow moving action now moves to the remote island where the action does not pick up speed But readers know something will happen because no one is going to leave the island until it does Eventually we arrive at a series of weird events and relationships that at least explain why Garry had earlier received such resistance in finding his birth motherThere are at least four twisted surprise relationships and an unrealistic surprise ending I felt we could have gone from A the beginning to Z the end by skipping steps B through V I found a lot of passages with the sole function of filling pages such as this On finding an email message‘Delia Come here uickly’ She came out of the bathroom toothbrush in hand and glaring at Garry at the bottom of the stairs said ‘What’s the matter now Garry? I’m trying to brush my teeth for God’s sake’ ‘Just wait till you see this Come and read it it’s important’ ‘What could be so important it can’t wait until I’ve finished?’ Kindle locations 1382 1386I asked the same uestion I think Delia and I would be a good matchI gave this three stars for the unusual revelations at the end I will not read by this author I am not sure what type of reader would be so interested in such a slow moving story Book ReviewBasic DetailsBook Title A Dangerous SecretSubtitleAuthor Peter MartinGenre MysteryThrillerPart of a series?
