About The Book
Andrew, the manager of Shanamore Holiday Cottages, watches his only guest via a hidden camera in her room. One night the unthinkable happens: a shadowy figure emerges onscreen, kills her and destroys the camera. But who is the murderer? How did they know about the camera? And how will Andrew live with himself?
Natalie wishes she’d stayed at home as soon as she arrives in the wintry isolation of Shanamore. There’s something creepy about the manager. She wants to leave, but she can’t – not until she’s found what she’s looking for…
This is an explosive story about a murder caught on camera. You’ve already missed the start. To get the full picture you must rewind the tape and play it through to the end, no matter how shocking…
With thanks to the publisher for the copy received via Pigeonhole. Rewind was a novel that I found gripping and at times slightly intimidating. It was a novel where even though none of the characters were particularly likeable I wanted to know more about all of them.
It does jump backward and forward in time quite often and at first I found this a little confusing but once I got used to it and the characters I thought it worked well. Natalie’s career choice was one that baffled me. Internet stardom is something that I don’t really understand the attraction of, but it was more preferable than Audrey’s. Voyeuristic journalism is something I detest, and the author managed to make me dislike it even more. It amused me that Audrey felt the same way. she was one of the few characters I liked more than the others.
I found Rewind to be original, reading it serialised added to the intrigue and suspicion and has left me with the need to examine every inch of a hotel room from now on.
