Recently finished:Central Park by Guillaume Musso, March 16, 2021 by Bay Back Books.
Genre: thriller, mystery
The book is not what it seems. A Parisian detective wakes us handcuffed to a musician from Dublin, in Central Park, NY. How they got there, seemingly overnight, and why, are questions they set about finding the answer to. There is no question of going to the local police as the Parisian finds herself covered in blood though she herself is uninjured. Also, she is carrying an unknown gun. They decide to find answers on their own.
There follows a set of adventures of discovery and mystery, with a complete twist at the end that is totally unexpected.
I gave this tantalizing thriller four stars, for the plot alone.
