Book Review: The Hit List

Author: Holly Seddon

Narrated by: Chris Reilly, Damian Lynch, Perdita Weeks, Stephanie Racine, Tuppence Middleton

Publication Date: August 28, 2020

Rating: 4 out of 5.

After Marianne’s husband Greg has been dead for a year she tries to find out more about her late husband for comfort. While looking through Greg’s laptop, Marriane discovers Greg was on the dark web and then finds a hit list with her name on it. Who would want Marriane dead? Did she actually know her husband at all? How can Marrianne stay safe?

None of the characters can be trusted and they are all excellent characters with multifaceted personalities. The book is told from multiple characters perspectives which I found fascinating. There was a lot going on in The Hit List. I definitely did not figure out who was behind everything until it was revealed. It is very twisted.

I listened to the audiobook with Chris Reilly, Damian Lynch, Perdita Weeks, Stephanie Racine, and Tuppence Middleton and think they all did a great job. Their voices went well with the characters. The only thing was some of the accents were strong, so I had to listen to the audiobook slower than usual. Once slowed down though I could understand everything well and I enjoyed listening to the accents.

The Hit List was my first book by Holly Seddon, and it definitely won’t be my last. I recommend The Hit List to thriller fans.

Thank you NetGalley and Trapeze (Orion) for The Hit List.
