Girl Unknown

Girl Unknown - Karen Perry
A gripping story, smartly written and very believable by authors who know how to grab a reader's interest and never let it go.

Karen Perry is the pen name of crime writing duo Paul Perry and Karen Gillece who both live in Ireland. Their latest novel, Girl Unknown is my second novel by this team and it certainly didn't disappoint.

When Zoe Barry walks into Professor David Connolly's office and announces that she is his daughter, he is left reeling. Suddenly his family - imperfect, flawed but working, is trying to find space for someone new. But no one expected where it all would end, her stories don't add up and the whole family struggle to make sense of her.

I really liked the premise of this novel and characters were well drawn and both plot and characters were believable.
An enjoyable and suspenseful read with lots of twists and turns to keep the reader interested. I especially enjoyed the twists and turns.

My thanks to Penguin Books for the opportunity to read this novel in return for an honest review.
