THE GIRL IN 6E (Deanna Madden #1) by A.R. Torre
Published; July 14th 2014, Orion Books
A dark and sexy thriller from a sensational new voice.
Deanna Madden, aka Jessica Reilly, hasn’t touched another person in three years.
She hasn’t left her apartment.
She makes money from performing to webcams on a sex site, where her clients pay $6.99 a minute for her time.
She’s doing alright. The dollars are piling up in the bank. She’s the number 3 model on cams.com.
And she hasn’t killed anyone for years.
But when Deanna sees on the news that a little girl called Annie has gone missing, the story rattles her carefully ordered world. It’s uncomfortably similar to the dark fantasy of one of her most disturbing online clients. She’s convinced he’s responsible for the girl’s abduction – but no one will listen to her.
So, after three years, Deanna finally leaves the apartment.
And this is what happens…
Wow! What a read!
When I first started this book I wasn’t sure what to expect, I’d heard good reviews but did wonder if I’d like it as much as others seemed to. I can honestly say I was not disappointed!
The opening of the novel develops the main character, her way of life and living and how she interacts (or not in this case) with other people. It is initially written from one point of view, then developing into a couple of other characters so we can get their viewpoints.
THE GIRL IN 6E makes for compulsive reading with its steady starting pace, accelerating and drawing me in to find when I finally put it down after starting it I had already read a third of the book! I could not put this book down, and finished it in 3 sittings over 2 days, it was making me late for arranged plans as I just wanted to read a few more pages, to then find I’d finished yet another chapter and was really rather late!
I don’t want to spoil the story for anyone so I will not be revealing spoilers, but if you like a fast read, fast paced thriller definitely pick up this book.
I can’t wait to get my hands on book 2 and see what happens next!
