Buckle up for a thrilling ride through deception and vengeance in the latest episode of Shelf Addiction Podcast, where Tamara and featured co-host Classy from the Bookish Virtual Assistant delve into the twisty narrative of 'Look Closer' by David Ellis. With a gripping opener that rivals the best in thriller fiction, this book is a masterclass in suspense, keeping the hosts and listeners on the edge of their seats. From Simon and Vicky's darkly intertwined pasts to the shocking revelations of a seemingly perfect couple's true nature, this episode unpacks the intricate web of lies and the long game of revenge that propels the story to its explosive conclusion.

As Tamara and Classy dissect the novel's complex characters and their motivations, they uncover the meticulous planning behind the murders, the clever use of technology, and the satisfyingly thorough police work that nearly unravels it all. The hosts commend Ellis's writing for its engrossing pace, despite a few plot holes, and the outstanding narration that brought the characters to life. However, they also note the lack of diversity within the cast and how it could have enriched the story's tapestry.

Listeners who enjoy a narrative where nothing is as it seems, and everyone has a secret, will find 'Look Closer' to be a perfect pick. This episode is a full spoiler discussion, so it's best enjoyed after reading the book. For those who want more, the after-show on Patreon and Spreaker offers an extended conversation.Today on BOOK CHAT, Tamara and Classy are discussing this month's Buddy Read. This is a candid and spoiler-filled convo, so you've been warned! Every month we come together to talk about the thriller/mystery title that we've chosen. Feel free to join us for the book club meeting if you want more discussion beyond the podcast episode!
