A first-class gripping suspense thriller with perfect pacing.

 A Great review by Vine Voice reviewer Piaras for my thriller, Overdue:

Reviewed in the United States on February 17, 2021

Overdue (Ash Suspense Thrillers with a Dash of Romance Book 4) by USA Today bestselling author Uvi Poznansky is another gripping suspense thriller in the series. It’s a superbly written and richly descriptive novel with brilliantly drawn characters and settings. The threads of storytelling are expertly woven in this gripping suspense thriller that it guarantees the attention of the reader. Skillfully constructed, this murder mystery will have you turning the pages from beginning to end. In addition, the characters are drawn with great credibility and conviction.

The book description gives a sneak preview: ‘Her bullet grazed his head, but the leader of a Russian crime organization is still breathing. One way for Vlad to avoid paying the price for his crimes is to play dead; another is to play dying. For Ash, this is not a game. She must learn his secrets. Only one problem: because of the raging pandemic, she must put her plan on hold… Vlad slips away from the hospital in a body bag, then develops a brazen fraud scheme that will bilk health insurance companies out of millions of dollars. If not caught in time, he will drive victims to suicide, rob Ash of her identity, and slit her throat… Will Ash manage to stay one step ahead of him and at the same time, protect her loved ones from contagion?’

I enjoyed the story, character development, and dialogue. There were plenty of plot twists that I didn’t see coming and that added to the book’s mystique. When I stopped reading to work, I found myself wondering what happened in the book, and replaying parts of the novel in my head to see if I could figure more out. It has been a while since I enjoyed a book this much. It’s a first-class suspense thriller with perfect pacing. Not much is as it appears here, which is just the way fans of mystery, thriller and suspense will want it.

The contrast between tone and content is a characteristic talent of only a few authors. Poznansky pays as much attention to her sentences as she does to her plots, shifting or consolidating meaning with the use of a single word. Her writing is impeccably honed, full of juxtapositions and qualifications that help to create a suspenseful atmosphere throughout.

If you are looking for a well-written and exceptional thriller with amazing characters and a gripping plot then Overdue (Ash Suspense Thrillers with a Dash of Romance Book 4) will not leave you disappointed. I’m a big fan of this author so I’ll be looking forward to reading more from her again in the future. Highly recommended and a well-deserved five stars from me
