John Quinn, an investigative journalist on England’s biggest-selling and most notorious tabloid newspaper, is about to write the story of his life – a kiss-and-tell with one of the country’s most powerful men at its heart. But the story dies when Lorna Thomas, the kiss in his kiss-and-tell, kills herself on a quiet country road.
Unable to accept her twin’s suicide, Laurie Thomas follows in her sister’s footsteps to London and to the heart of government. And as she becomes more involved in Lorna’s world, she grows more convinced than ever that Lorna did not take her own life. But if Lorna didn’t kill herself, who did?
After reading the blurb to Prime Deception I was excited. I visualised a dark, deep, thrilling read which would have me gripped. I'm afraid to say that is not what I got. What I got was a light tale of love and the possibilities that may occur to us if we allow ourselves to be forced into any type of partnership. I was disappointed greatly by this because I chose this book because it would get me away from love for a bit.
I do have to give the book credit though because even though it wasn't what it promised to be it was actually okay. It was slow paced and it did drag in parts, but the characters gave just enough to make me carry on reading.
I'm finishing it very hard to write a review for this because I know I will give spoilers, so I apologise for the not so great review.
