A thrilling suspense ride!
Overdue by Uvi Poznansky was a wild ride! Who is ‘the Voola’? Having read previous Russian mob books, I knew immediately, and that told me Overdue was going to be filled with twists and turns for Ash and Michael. My gut wasn’t wrong. Ash was on the radar of a Russian mob boss who lived to defraud and destroy people's identities and their lives.
When Ash meets a mysterious woman, the country is in the grips of the new Covid pandemic. Terrified for her life, and the life of her boyfriend, Ash is all too careful about interacting with someone she doesn’t know, but this woman was desperately in need of help, or so Ash thought.
The truth was something else altogether and Ash never saw it coming. In fact, Ash never dreamed that trying to be a good samaritan would put her life in danger multiple different times. The reader will be on pins and needles as Ash, and the people she loves, are put through the wringer by the Voola. Just when you think she’s going to be safe, nope! Ms. Poznansky keeps the blows coming one after another on both Ash, and her family, until you’re sure she can’t take much more. It is only then that the author gives the reader a breather and lets her characters find a little happiness.
Overdue is a prime example of Ms. Poznansky’s emotional and lyrical writing and it is obvious she has spent many hours on research for this thriller. This was the first Ash Suspense Thriller I read, and I didn’t need to read the first three to be able to follow this one. I definitely want to, though! If you’re looking for a well-written thriller whether you listen to this book on Audiobook or read it yourself, you can’t go wrong. The narrator, Heather Jane Hogan, brings this story to life in a wonderfully invigorating way that sucks you in from the first paragraph and holds your attention for the duration.
I received a complimentary audiobook for my honest and voluntary review as above.
