Well, this is how you write a suspense thriller This is the story of two vulnerable and brave women who want to escape from their world which has become too dangerous to live in Claire Cook is married to Rory, a family dynasty not unlike the Kennedys Rory presents a charismatic, charming face to the world but that is not who or what he is Claire makes plans to vanish but these plans go awry At JFK airport she meets Eva, also on the run but the story she spins and which Claire buys into is a lie They trade flights and hopes that this will allow them to vanish from their lives but the Puerto Rico flight Claire should have been on crashes The story is told in dual storylines by Claire in the present day and by Eva in a countdown from 6 months prior to the crash The two storylines are gripping and very easy to follow You feel Claire s panic, tension and fear which is sometimes so great its sickening and in the pit of your stomach Eva is lost, she gets herself embroiled in things, her dreams are dashed partly because she s powerless, she feels unloved and expendable especially when she becomes caught between two equally dangerous options Both women are very likeable, they re flawed but who isn t, you really want both of them to succeed, get away, have a second chance and start afresh with opportunity rather than danger I really like the Berkeley, San Francisco setting which provides an atmospheric backdrop to the unfolding drama The story is very well plotted and the pace is spot on and really ramps up towards the end There is some tension and bumps along the road when you hold your breathe and keep your fingers crossed for both women There are twists and turns and some of those I most certainly didn t see coming The ending feels right although it s probably not what you are hoping for Overall, a terrific suspense thriller which is extremely well written, keeps your focus throughout with characters you invest in Highly recommended Many thanks to NetGalley and Hodder and

narrative The Last Flight is a psychological thriller about two women whose chance encounter provides them the opportunity to escape from their demons in the form of a dark and dangerous Freaky Friday Claire and Eva are at a crossroads in their lives Claire is trying to escape from her abusive husband, while Eva is trying to escape from a dangerous career A chance encounter at the airport enables them to switch flights and adopt one another s identities Although they are able to trade identities, danger lurks behind the corner for both women, resulting in a tense and suspenseful read.Told through both women s eyes, the reader learns about their pasts and their desire to escape Both characters are well developed and both narratives are equally compelling I was rooting for both Claire and Eva and was pleased with how their stories played out There are some moments in this book that had me shaking my head at the level of improbability However, Clark s writing style is addictive and allowed me to immerse myself in Claire and Eva s stories and shut off my annoying brain When I got closer to the end, I realized that I was wrong about most of these questionable moments, as there is a lotgoing on in this book than initially seemed The Last Flight is a page turner I was hooked from the start It is fast paced, tautly written, suspenseful, and intriguing This is what a psychological thriller should be I highly recommend I received an ARC of this book from NetGalley and the publisher in exchange for an honest review NOW AVAILABLE It s rarely that I give a thriller 5 stars but this

shifting from one woman s story to the other There is a lot of back and forth but it s easy to follow.So as women sometimes I think we ve come so far but yet there are still so many women out there being abused by their husbands or controlled by dealers and pimps This is the story of two very different women who both desperately need to escape their lives and they have done a great deal of research and planning to find a way to escape.One point of view is that of Claire, married to a prominent political family, think the Kennedy s which are always the first to come to mind She thought she married a funny, loving and caring man but as their marriage went on he became physically abusive Rory has surrounded himself with so much staff that seem to watch Claire s every move, including his personal manager, Danielle, that Claire at first can t think of a way to escape from him She had failed a prior attempt and suffered badly at her husband s hand with the bruises, etc to prove it This time, with the help of her close friend whose husband has great connections she thinks she has it planned perfectly She will go to a planned event but then drastically change her course and plane destination and hopefully disappear On the day of the planned event however, her husband suddenly decides that she must fly to Puerto Rico to an event there that he wants her to attend She still thinks she has a chance to get away if she can only figure out a way She meets another woman Eva, with a ticket to California, at the airport bar and everything changes Eva was raised in the foster care system but she was one of the ones who made it out She had a great scholarship and was working hard in college at Berkely and then met the wrong guy He got her in a situation with drugs and when they were both caught, the police only pressed charges on Eva and she lost her scholarship Desperate and with no money, she meets a man who promises a safe career in drug dealing if only she follows all of the rules For a while she works at making and selling drugs, but then things turn dark and frightening and she wants to get away and start a new life.These two characters meet at the bar in the airport and decide to change tickets, passports, ID s, purses, basically their entire identity Claire goes to Oakland and Eva to Puerto Rico.There is a lot to follow in this twisty, roller coaster of a thriller When at any time I thought I knew what would happen I was wrong What aced this one for me was the description of the characters and I found them both believable and vulnerable and I was rooting for them both This book is very fast paced and will practically force you to continue Noplot details, I want everyone to experience the thrills in this book, I highly recommend it.I received an ARC of this novel from the publisher through Edelweiss.It is set to publish on June 23, 2020 Okay, this was really goodTwo women in crisis meet at the airport and decide to switch tickets and
