One in Three is an enjoyable thriller. Throughout the book I thought I figured out what happened but didn’t find out until the very end.
One in Three is about a man that gets murdered. His wife, Caz, and ex-wife, Louise, are both in the room when his body is found and blame each other. The story then goes back seven week to explain what lead to the murder. The story is told mainly between Caz and Louise’s point of view. Everyone looks guilty throughout the book, so you have to wait until the end to find out what happened and why. This story is character focused and really brings the reader into the lives of the different characters.
I recommend this book to anyone that likes character focused thrillers. There are very few likable characters, so if that bothers you I do not recommend this book.
Thank you NetGalley and the publisher for this ARC in exchange for an honest review.
