Book Review: "Danger Danger" by Gerry McCullough

 Book Blurb...

Two lives in parallel – twin sisters separated at birth, but their lives take strangely similar and dangerous roads until the final collision which hurls each of them to the edge of disaster.

Book Review: Danger Danger by Gerry McCullough

I have been eagerly awaiting a new book by Author Gerry McCullough, having read and enjoyed her marvelous debut novel Belfast Girls.

The new book exceeded my expectations. The story of twins separated at birth is not new…what is new is Author McCulloughs marvelous interpretation of parallel lives.

The emotional intensity of the characters is beautifully drawn. You care for these people. I turned the pages rapidly eager to learn more of their lives, their loves and their fear.

This book is a thriller, the action is fast paced, the depth of characterization mesmerizing and highly visual.

Author Gerry McCullough serves us a feast with this book.

The women in this work come from utterly different backgrounds and it is a measure of this authors talent that both Katie in her working class world and her twin Annie the high flying party girl are wonderfully sympathetic characters. Each of them are likeable, and you can’t help but care what happens to them.

They share poor taste in their selection of their men folk as well.

Those choices lead them into much danger. With perfect timing and page turning action this book is addictive, and simply unputdownable.

A great choice for a Christmas gift in my opinion.
