Reviews of Rachel Amphlett’s books use words like “fast paced”, and “heart-pumping, page-turning thriller” – so deciding to read her upcoming book Look Closer was easy. Here’s the teaser:
‘This doesn’t look like a newspaper story, Will. This is obsessive. It’s like she’s got a personal vendetta or something.’ He pointed at her laptop. ‘What do you make of that?’
Here’s the blurb:
How far would you go to protect a secret? How far would you go to expose a lie? Will Fletcher seems to have it all – perfect job, perfect life. Then in one act of extreme violence, his world is turned upside down. A bungled assassination attempt on a London street uncovers a disturbing conspiracy fuelled by organised crime and political ambition. Now, Will finds himself on the run, pursued by a dangerous enemy who will stop at nothing to protect his employer’s past. The only way to stop the chain of events is to follow a trail of clues that lead to the heart of British politics.
With the date for the UK General Election only days away and the killers closing in, Will is running out of time to deliver his own version of vigilante justice and expose the corruption. As the web of lies and deceit unravels, Will knows the answer’s out there. All he has to do is look closer.
Secrets and lies.
What do you think? Is this a book for you? You can pre-order Look Closer for just 0.99 until March 24 here.
Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:
- Grab your current read
- Open to a random page
- Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
- BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!
Look Closer sounds really good, I just may have to one-click it – cheap and good is impossible for me to resist, really!
Happy reading 🙂
Like this, very intriguing. Here is mine
Nice cover and the blurb, your teasers tell me this is a book I may like. Thanks for sharing. I ‘ll be checking it out further.

Mine is also about a news story today!
It’s from Wreckage by Emily Bleeker
Funny, the plot line is very similar to another book I am reading right now, “Personal” by Lee Child.
Anyway, my teaser this week is from “Blood Line”, a spy thriller: http://pdworkman.com/excerpt-from-blood-line/
I think Personal is the only Lee Child book I haven’t read! This one is much shorter and the character, Will, is nothing like Reacher – much more vulnerable.
Sounds exciting! Mine if from one of Janet Evanovich’s Stephanie Plum books: http://wp.me/pZnGI-js
Sounds like an interesting read; definitely one I would enjoy!
This sounds intense. I would definitely pick this one up… and at that price. Resistance is futile.
My Tuesday Teaser
Oooh I’m intrigued! I want to know what’s on her laptop, like right now! I could see myself going very far to expose a lie, but it would have to be a pretty severe one! Thanks for sharing 🙂 Hope you have a great week!

I’ve worked as a journalist so I can understand getting caught up in something like that. I’m kind of glad I didn’t though!
My kind of reading too! I’m curious what was on her computer!

There were lots of hints before the reveal … kept me wondering.
