by Gerrie (Carmel, IN): Reading Candlish’s The Other Passenger is comparable to watching a long far off train making its way to a collapsed trestle over a 1,000 ft drop, you know disaster is coming but you are powerless to stop it. There are twists within twists and an ending worth the wait. There were times in the last two hundred pages where I stopped to catch my breath, wishing the end would come sooner, almost as if I just couldn’t take the stress of the process anymore and I had to know the outcome that second. The pacing reminded me of the steady slow single drip from a rooftop after a lull in the rain, then proceeding to a faster drip as the rain picks up and culminating in a full torrent as the storm blows in. I would recommend this to anyone who enjoys being held in suspense.
