‘Alias’ packs a punch from the get-go. A badly injured woman with no memory finds herself in a race to find out why she ended up next to a dead woman in a crashed car in Wales. Detective Bronwyn Pryce may be her only hope to find out. The story is full of suspense and mystery and never lets up. The first person narrative is perfect as we find out what is behind it all at the same time as the woman. Cari Hunter has the most impressive turn of phrase and her use of language adds to the reality of the story. It is funny and true and the characters are expertly imagined. There is also a tenderness and vulnerability that is pitched perfectly. It never wanders into sentimentality but feels real. This is yet another winner from Hunter and it deserves every publishing  industry accolade.

I was given this ARC in return for an honest review.
