I can't imagine waking up after a serious car accident and nit remembering anything. I don't even want to imagine it. Some injuries heal and you remember again.
It went a tad slow for me. Nothing ever grabbed me and sucked me in. It was ok.
Cari Hunter writes exceedingly good books and this is the best yet.
It starts with a literal “bang” when a car goes off the road in the Welsh hills leaving one woman dead and the other severely injured and suffering amnesia. Who she is and why she is there elude her, and us. Working with Detective Bronwen Pryce from the local police the survivor must piece together her life, and then survive the what she finds.
The plot is fast and sometimes furious, but as usual with Ms Hunter's writing ...more

Though certainly a tearjerker, ALIAS is deeply intense,poignant,unique,has that touch of the classic Cari Hunter writing style,and a perfect balance for any reader. With plotlines that could be taken from today's headlines,combining sensitive handling of impossible d ...more
Finally! I finished this book. Not that the book was bad. Actually the book was pretty good. It just I had been sooo distracted to the point i had no longer in the mood reading this book any more. And I even forgot some minor characters. I even had to go back to check who was who. 😅 my bad.
This book talked in first POV of the one who had amnesia. Since synopsis didnt reveal her name, I has no intention saying it either. This one quite different from the books I read so far with amnesia. Mostly t ...more
Alias was actually the first book I read by this author, and it was very good. I loved how the two main characters developed over time, especially from stoicism and mistrust to braving true emotions. I also enjoyed the characters’ tone and the author’s use of certain phrases associated with her character’s ethnicity. This added to the realism of the story along with the very descriptive settings of England and Wales.
The plot was very entertaining. As more characters came into play, the mystery ...more
I have read and enjoyed many of this author's previous books and I can't believe she wrote this one. The first and last 10% of the story was very interesting and exciting. But I felt the 80% in between very slow, confusing and basically uninteresting. There is very little story and it drags and drags. The lead character's lack of memory, dreams etc I thought was annoying and sometimes confusing. And the format is VERY English. I felt like I was guessing at all the abbreviations of law enforcemen ...more
An entertaining and engaging mystery. From the beginning, this read pulled me in with the car crash and a women that did not survive and another badly injured. Detective Bronwen Pryce is articulated as a no nonsense police officer that is intriguing and someone the reader wants to know more about and Hunter does a good job of providing the information bit-by-bit. "Rebecca" does not know who she is and it was interesting to read how Hunter eases the reader in on who she is. the supporting charact ...more
There will be no spoilers in this review. I believe people who put spoilers in their reviews should be barred from reading books until they're out for one year (that's the book being out not the reviewer. The latter isn't compulsory). The twists and turns in this story are the beauty of the book and you need to read it with no preconceived ideas, much like Rebecca. She has crashed her car in Wales and her companion is dead and she has no recollection of anything leading up to the crash and only ...more
