I was drawn into this novel right from the beginning when Tina is aware that she is being watched and the atmosphere of menace is palpable. Throughout the novel, the suspense element and the emotional context are closely entwined. True the ‘romantic suspense’ tag may put off some hardened crime readers. But the romance genre actually has a very wide spread ranging from the really lightweight (classic Mills & Boon, ‘froth-and-bubble’, etc) to much more serious examinations of the powerful and complicated emotions that govern relations between men and women (and these days sometimes men and men and women and women). The Half-Truth comes very much into the latter category with the added extra that not only is happiness at stake but that matters of life and death are involved. If ever there was a reason to revive the ‘romantic suspense’ genre it is novels like this that will contribute.
