Three words: Oh. My. God.
First off, the cover was
amazing. It caught my attention right away. I had to get right in.
Second, the story.
You’ll want to jump right
in, which is good because Gerald builds up your hopes and doesn’t disappoint.
She tells a great story from the point of view of the all-too-relatable Catherine
Carnegie, a woman from a well-to-do family whose love for danger has become more
addictive than the most powerful drug for her.
From there, her life
becomes one risky decision after another, all of which will keep you guessing
all the way toward an ending that you won’t expect. In conclusion, Confessions
of an Assassin is a classic that will no doubt be in libraries and bookstores
for years to come. This is my first Linda Heavner Gerald book and I’m looking
forward to reading more from her.
