Amy is at the top of her game as a finance professional despite a traumatic childhood. But the higher she climbs, the greater her fear of falling.
Her new boss Ed sniffs out insecurity like a shark smelling blood. He’s trashed dozens of careers on a whim and has Amy lined up as his next victim.
When a young colleague is murdered, Amy’s fragile equilibrium is shattered. A client’s fraud may be linked to the killing, but no one seems to care.
Caught in a tangle of business and personal connections, and fighting for her sanity, can Amy find the moral courage to uncover the truth?

My Thoughts:

‘Concealment’ is brilliant thriller set in the cut-throat world of high finance. Now I can often find tax and finance to be fairly dull subjects but even though there was quite a bit of talk about taxes and such those parts were done in a way that I wasn’t even tempted to nod off at all. Definitely a sign of top quality writing and an interesting story line!

There are so many twists and turns throughout the course of the novel that I don’t want to get into too much detail of the plot. The lead character, Amy, is struggling to survive in her role as a finance professional. She had a terrible childhood and for a lot of the novel it is difficult to decide if she is going crazy or there really is a murderous conspiracy going on. Her slimy boss, Ed Smithies, is the perfect baddie and the rest of her friends, family, and co-workers don’t seem to be much better.

I really enjoyed the fast-pace of  ‘Concealment’ as well as the interesting characters and intriguing plot. There was plenty of mystery and it really did keep me guessing until the very end.
