“Beginning to End” by Paul Hughes is fast-paced, high-stakes thriller with exciting twists and turns that keep you in suspense for hours! In a way this is modeled after a classic crime-thriller, but it really impressed me by its originality in many areas and terrific detailing and a substantial (an unpredictable) plot. It was easy to read, not overly complicated, just a great story written without dragging things out… It’s one of the those books you pick up and just finish before you realized it’s over, like eating comfort food, the simplicity, yet action packed pages and witty dialogue and unpredictable twists were great. I enjoyed the descriptive world building, and really felt transported to another time and place, if only for some brief moments as it does have its darker side. We never feel ‘safe’ as we are reading as the threat of danger is always near, but that’s what kept me so hooked. When I was finished I closed my Kindle and smiled, for it was a good read…. I’ll want read the other books from Paul Hughes for sure.
