Anything You Do Say by Gillian McAllister

This was a most enjoyable book…written with a ‘sliding doors’ approach...and one I couldn't wait to pick up at any opportune moment. 

Joanna and her best friend Laura are on a girls’ night out, when Joanna receives some seriously unwanted ‘attention’ from Sadiq. On her way home, she hears someone behind her…seemingly following her. It must be Sadiq. He’s getting worryingly close and as they descend some steps, it happens: the moment that changes lives forever. Notwithstanding, there are two paths, Joanna can take. The story then pursues, in alternating chapters, each of the paths. 

This was brilliantly executed, extremely well written and the characters were very well drawn—Joanna, in particular. I really liked her and her husband’s, Reuben’s, character. 

Much as I was enjoying reading these two parallel universes, how the ending was going to evolve was constantly on my mind: but it came together excellently.

It’s quite a thought-provoking book: whatever you might think, you can never predict how you might act in a dangerous, threatening or serious situation. 

A very good and satisfying book. Highly recommended.
