Review: The Girl At The Bar by Nicholas Nash

The Girl At The Bar The Girl At The Bar by Nicholas Nash
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This book may be categorized as a Sci-fi/Thriller, but the author found a way to play psychological warfare with me! Up was down, left was right. Even I didn't know who to trust!

The story starts off with a chance encounter between a beautiful woman, Rebecca, and a handsome man, Ragnar, in a bar. They immediately hit it off and their instant chemistry turns into a night of passion. When Ragnar wakes up the next morning, he's sad to see that Rebecca's gone and he has no way of getting in contact with her. All too soon, the cops are at his door because Dr. Rebecca Chase has gone missing and he was the last one to see her.

Ragnar starts off as a suspect, but he's determined to find his girl, with or without police cooperation. As the cops start digging, their list of suspects grows longer. The body count is rising and suspects are dropping like flies.

I honestly didn't know who was behind it all and didn't bother to hazard a guess after I got it wrong the second time! Everyone had secrets and everyone had a motive. I was pleasantly shocked by the big reveal and I think other readers will be too. There is no doubt that the author keeps us guessing right to the end.

Nicholas Nash held me captivated with his mastery of words and this story refused to loose me from its grip until it reached its conclusion. It was obvious that he spent tremendous time on not only forming this story, but the research that went into it. I recommend this novel to fans of crime/sci-fi/mystery/thrillers.
