Who?   By: (1875-1947)

Who? by Elizabeth Kent

Who? by Elizabeth Kent is a gripping psychological thriller that had me on the edge of my seat from start to finish. Set in a small town, the story follows Samantha Mitchell, a young woman who wakes up one morning with no recollection of who she is or where she comes from.

The author skillfully weaves a compelling narrative, gradually revealing Samantha's past through fragments of memories and mysterious encounters with people from her forgotten life. As the plot unfolds, the reader is taken on an unpredictable journey, filled with suspense and intrigue.

What I found particularly impressive about this novel was Kent's ability to create a sense of unease and uncertainty. The book constantly keeps you guessing, as every character seems to have secrets and hidden agendas. This creates a tense atmosphere that intensifies as Samantha's memories begin to resurface.

The character development in Who? is top-notch. Samantha is a relatable and sympathetic protagonist, whose vulnerability and determination make her easy to root for. The supporting cast is equally well-drawn, each with their own distinct personalities and motivations. The relationships between the characters are complex and dynamic, adding depth to the story.

Kent's writing style is engaging and immersive, making it hard to put the book down. Her descriptions are vivid, allowing readers to easily visualize the setting and feel a part of the story. The pacing is excellent, with well-timed twists and turns that kept me hooked throughout.

One minor drawback of the novel is that at times, the plot becomes slightly convoluted and hard to follow. There are numerous subplots and secondary characters introduced, which occasionally detracts from the main storyline. However, this did not significantly impact my overall enjoyment of the book.

Overall, Who? is a thrilling and thought-provoking read that will keep you engrossed until the very end. Elizabeth Kent's masterful storytelling and well-crafted characters make this a must-read for fans of psychological suspense. I would highly recommend this book to anyone looking for a gripping mystery that will keep them guessing.

THE WOMAN IN THE COMPARTMENT

It was six o'clock on a raw October morning, and the cross Channel boat had just deposited its cargo of pale and dishevelled passengers at Newhaven.
