I received a gifted copy of ‘The Interview’ by C.M. Ewan in return for my honest review.
This book follows Kate Harding in London, as she is still getting over a devastating time in her life.
Trying to rebuild her life she is offered an interview for a top PR job at Edge Communications. She is really nervous, but her recruitment agent Maggie helps to steady her nerves.
The interview starts off normally, but then the questions get a little personal and unusual. Kate isn’t sure if she is being tested or if there is another agenda behind the interviewer Joel.
When she finds herself locked in an empty office room, Kate starts to realise things may not be as they seem.
Will Kate be able to escape? Is this still a job interview or is this something more sinister?
This book is extremely tense, is told by the point of view of Kate and Joel, and is mostly set in one building. It felt like Kate was in a Horror film, over and over being pulled back to the same room.
There are so many shocking twists all the way through which keep you turning the pages quickly to find out what is going to happen next.
I liked Kate’s character as she develops throughout the book, as she seems to realise that she has more fight in her than she thought and that she is a strong woman.
Overall, an intense and shocking psychological thriller, which will put you off going for any job interview again.
