#2/2019 Bring Me Back



I read the literary debut of BA Paris a while ago and enjoyed the way she told that story. Very intense, filled with extreme emotions, solid plot. "Bring me Back" starts with a cliffhanger. A man narrates a story of how a woman seemingly gets kidnapped during a foreign trip ends with a statement that the man didn't tell the whole truth to the police. 12 years pass and as the protagonist seems to be finally at peace with his life, the past catches up to him.

The dual narrative is a neat device as there are two completely different views on the events as they develop. While at some point I began having certain suspicions, the ending didn't fail to surprise me. Perhaps not brilliant but definitely a solid read.
