My thanks to Jenni Leech for the advanced readers copy provided to me for review. Opinions expressed in this review are completely my own.
You could say it started with vanity. We believed we were special. But the truth is we were simply vulnerable.
Months after landing their dream job, five brilliant young minds are sent on a remote retreat.
But when one of them disappears, they’re forced to question why they were brought there in the first place.
And for the first time in their lives, they realise too much knowledge can be deadly . . .
One of them is lying.
One of them is guilty.
No one is safe.
We start this book following Libby and Joe’s life as they meet, fall in love, and start to plan their future. Just as they start to get to a crossroads in their life, they are offered the opportunity to work doing their dream jobs and earning more than they could ever have dreamed off.
Libby and Joe team up with a few select people who are tasked with hacking their client’s databases and reporting back any weaknesses they may find. Not everyone is as they seem though and tensions run high when they all go on a team building retreat in the middle of the country.
The whole way through this book I got the sense that something untoward was going on but I was never quite sure what it is was exactly. I started to lose interest a little way through but I was still intrigued enough to want to read to the end to see how it all worked out. There are a few sections which were a bit far fetched for me, but I really liked the concept and the book had a really satisfying ending.
