One Step Too Far - Tina Seskis I read One Step Too Far on holiday and was seriously anti-social until I'd finished it! From the very first page the reader is left wondering - what on earth could have made Emily leave her perfect marriage, child and home. Part of you wants to dislike her for doing this but she is such a likeable, sympathetic character that you want her to succeed as well ... she must have had a very good reason for doing what she did. The twist at the end took me massively by surprise - I thought I was quite good at guessing these things! My favourite character by far was Angel, flawed but with a heart of gold. She could do with a book of her own. I also enjoyed the all too familiar descriptions of London's murky side and its sometimes even murkier glamorous side. Congratulations to Seskis for a great read and I look forward to reading her next novel, A Serpentine Affair.
