Wow! All I can say is I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book! I was engrossed with the story from the first page to the last.

I thought the writing was very good, making me feel as if I knew each character intimately.  This novel deals with many things; family, sexual abuse, love, homosexuality, loss, suicide and terrorism. I really don't want to say anything else but READ THIS BOOK! You will think about it a lot after reading.

I will recommend to friends, family, and anyone who reads! Thanks go to Netgalley and the publisher for providing me with an e-book. All opinions are my own.

I really enjoyed this book. Very fast paced from the start. The sad reality of Daniel’s life was hard to read. Losing your family and having a very severed relationship with your only living one (his father) was hard to imagine. This is a tale of someone being taken advantage of by another person who is only seeking love and acceptance. He ruined his life by doing this to him. 
I would recommend this book to anyone. Fast read due to the writing style and subject matter. Thanks to the publisher and Netgalley for allowing me to have an early reading.

I received a complimentary copy of Duplicity from NetGalley.  Opinions expressed in this review are entirely my own.

This novel caused me some stress.  It was very well written and seems to explain the brainwashing "how" of "random" terrorism.  A very valuable read, but I cannot really say that I enjoyed any of it.  This novel was more shocking and eye-opening than enjoyable.

Thank you to NetGalley for the ARC

I am absolutely at a loss for words. Actually, I didn't read the whole book. I had to skip some parts because they made too great an impact. The story is by times very confusing, full of hatred and love at the same time.
I think Fin C. Gray is a very, very talented author and I will try and read the book again sometime, but right now, it is just too much for me.

Many thanks to Netgalley and BooksGoSocial for this digital review copy.

I thoroughly enjoyed this psychological thriller  – if one can speak about enjoying the trauma experienced by our protagonist Daniel McIntyre and his friend Waqar.  The plot was revealed through two separate, alternating timelines which kept me anxious to discover what would happen.  The pace was tense and the characters brilliantly structured, even Daniel’s father, Tom who had a fractured relationship with Daniel evoked my sympathies.

I was incredibly  moved by Daniel and Waqar’s relationship and could not help but love Waqar who presented as a sensitive, forgiving soul.  Ultimately I was left deeply saddened by the outcome.

A thrilling story of how one young man was radicalised with tragic repercussions.

Thank you to the author, publishers and NetGalley for providing an ARC via my Kindle in return for an honest review.

I want to thank NetGalley, Olympia publishers and the author for giving me the opportunity to review this novel.
This novel tells the story of a young man (Daniel) and his journey through self discovery, from losing his innocence by a stranger at a young age to losing his mother. Daniel struggles with love lost and hatred which inadvertently lead him to become a suicide bomber. I have to say that the story was very captivating, and the author did an amazing job in telling a detailed story that showed aspects of the characters past and present and very thing that lead up to the events of this book.
