    It seemed like an ordinary Wednesday until the phone rang A mysterious caller is threatening journalist Alice Henderson who dismisses it as a hoax But the next Wednesday, the stalker makes another move and it becomes clear that this is all about Alice Alice is determined not to give in to fear, but with every passing Wednesday the warnings escalate, until it s not only Alice but also her family in the stalker s sights As her stalker closes in, can Alice uncover his identity The story begins It seemed like an ordinary Wednesday until the phone rang A mysterious caller is threatening journalist Alice Henderson who dismisses it as a hoax But the next Wednesday, the stalker makes another move and it becomes clear that this is all about Alice Alice is determined not to give in to fear, but with every passing Wednesday the warnings escalate, until it s not only Alice but also her family in the stalker s sights As her stalker closes in, can Alice uncover his identity The story begins well and has enough twists until the end The story alternates between the present and the past and was intriguing from the start as the truth gradually emerged over who and why Alice was being stalked and hidden secrets start getting uncovered This story is told from three people s points of view, Alice, the private investigator Matthew Hill and a mysterious narrator Him I Will Make You Pay is a well written story that is a bit slow to start, but it gathers momentum as the story moves forward The principal characters are all written though there are not many credible suspects to go around.After the halfway mark, the story gets sidetracked by too many subplots Alice s story with her mother, Matthew s interactions with his daughter and another client, etc They didn t really add anything to the story, especially to the main stalker storyline but in fact, distracted from it I wish there wereencounters with the stalker instead, who rarely made an appearance until towards the end As a result, the book felt lacking in genuinely scary moments I could guess the stalker quite early, as a result of which the ending of the novel felt flat to me Having said that, I really liked the stalker theme The HIM chapters, added a lot of intrigue to the final reveal Overall, I enjoyed reading I Will Make You Pay as the story keeps moving at a brisk pace which many good twists along the way If you like mysteries, you will enjoy this one Three and a half stars Many thanks to the publishersPublishing UK and NetGalley for the ARC

    OH ALICE YOU ARE SUCH A FOOL Well where do I start with this book I am afraid one hit I am outta here with this author, it was an intriguing premise that got me intrigued but it was a long haul from the start right to the finish, I wasn t invested in any of the characters so unlikeable flawed that I had to grit my teeth at times just to get through the book It wasn t a page turner the pacing suspense never picked up the whole way through, to say this was a thriller is an understatement i OH ALICE YOU ARE SUCH A FOOL Well where do I start with this book I am afraid one hit I am outta here with this author, it was an intriguing premise that got me intrigued but it was a long haul from the start right to the finish, I wasn t invested in any of the characters so unlikeable flawed that I had to grit my teeth at times just to get through the book It wasn t a page turner the pacing suspense never picked up the whole way through, to say this was a thriller is an understatement it just plodded along at a snails pace read at your own peril Wednesday was like any other Wednesday until Alice Henderson a journalist started receiving threats by an unknown stalker, her boyfriend Tom decides to hire a private detective to solve the case Matthew Hill who has demons of his own thinks it could be a former boyfriend who was in jail , but there is no motive its when Alice receives a box of flowers that are her mothers favourite that things seem to send Alice into panic mode as she thinks her mother is in danger she is in a nursing home All I will say from here on is that I picked the protagonist 10 minutes into the book was just a ho hum read
