Hold Still by Tim Adler

“HOLD STILL hooked me from the very beginning and Adler’s engaging style and sharp pace kept me glued” –

bestselling crime author Peter James

“I photographed the moment of my husband’s death.” So begins HOLD STILL, a nerve-twisting thriller that promises to be Murder On the Orient Express for the Snapchat generation.

How much do we really know about those we love? Kate is visiting Tirana, Albania with her husband Paul, a much needed break from Paul’s website business which lately seems to be of growing concern. “Hold still,” says Kate, taking a picture as Paul steps onto the balcony. “We’ll always be together,” Paul responds. Suddenly there is screaming below and a blaring car horn. Kate stares down from the balcony at the broken body of her husband lying dead in the street.

Overcome with grief, Kate can’t accept the truth of her husband’s tragic death, and she replays the incident again and again, searching her pictures for a vital clue to what really happened. When she meets the enigmatic Priest at a grief support group, they journey together into a dangerous world of violence and secrets as Kate realises what Paul really meant when he said he would never leave her……


This book definitely grabbed me from the beginning. The story has many twists and turns and took me places I wasn’t even considering. Kate is a strong character and I enjoyed the book. Recommended read. I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an unbiased review.
