Nobody Has to Know
by Frank Nappi
Nobody Has To Know, Frank Nappi’s dark and daring new thriller, tells the story of Cameron Baldridge, a popular high school teacher whose relationship with one of his students leads him down an unfortunate and self-destructive path. Stalked through text-messages, Baldridge fights for his life against a terrifying extortion plot and the forces that threaten to expose him. NHTK is a sobering look into a world of secrets, lies, and shocking revelations, and will leave the reader wondering many things, including whether or not you can ever really know the person you love.
My View: When I dived into this book, I had no idea what to expect and after a first few pages, I knew ‘Oh so this is what the book is about’. And then after a few pages, ‘ Uh oh, ok, so the book is not what I thought it was, and now this is how things are going to be’. A few more pages, ‘ And I was wrong again, so this is the main focus of the book’. Towards the end, ‘Wait, what? You’ve got to be kidding me’.
I hope I summed it up nicely, this book will play havoc with your mind. You’ll never know what’s coming up next. It is a mix of a whole lot of twists and turns and keeps you on your toes.
A couple of things I wished could be done away with – At times, I felt a lot of things were being repeated throughout, so I think some editing would have made this more exciting as a read. Few things seemed a bit realistic but well, who am I to say, I have never been in a situation like this.
The book is a thriller, drama and romance all rolled into one.
Overall, if you’re looking for something to read that will not stick to one major point but will change directions every once in a while, this is the book for you.
