I Will Make You Pay : A Book Review


book review

I Will Make You PayFrom the very first line, I was drawn into this book. “I am going to use the cheese wire on you.” Wow! “I Will Make You Pay,” by Teresa Driscoll was everything I hoped it would be. I’ve read “I Am Watching You” and “The Promise,” and loved both. Like those novels, “I will Make You Pay,” takes place in Devon, UK. While we meet characters from previous books, “I Will Make You Pay” is a stand-alone story.

A Stalker

One of the most frightening things a woman can experience is a stalker. That’s exactly what Alice, the protagonist of this novel, experiences. Who could want her to suffer? And why do they strike every Wednesday? The characters in Teresa Driscoll’s books are complex and likable. Those in “I Will Make You Pay” are no exception.

The Perspective in “I Will Make You Pay”

The story was told from different points of view with each chapter being labeled appropriately. This helped me to always know whose perspective I was reading. The author kept the pace moving, never bogging us down with unnecessary detail.  I often felt as though I was watching a movie. There was no vulgar language that I recall, and no sexually explicit content.

Teresa Driscoll

Because Teresa Driscoll was a journalist, she was able to write Alice’s character in a very realistic way. This book will especially appeal to women who love a good mystery. I think Driscoll has become one of my favorite authors. She never disappoints! “I Will Make Your Pay,” will be available tomorrow, October 10, 2019. Today, it is available for preorder.

I give “I Will Make You Pay,” 5 stars!

I thank NetGalley and Amazon Publishing UK for providing me with an advance copy of this “I Will Make Your Pay,” in exchange for an honest review.
