Guess Who Reviews
So here's the thing. I was in it to win it with this book. Had me captured from the first page.. and then about 3/4 of the way in… I was like waiiiit a minuuuteee… is this like SAW but NOT? And luckily it didn't go quite in the direction that I thought it would but it did veer in a completely different direction that I didn't expect (serious kudos for that) but also like WHAT?!
The short chapters keep you moving quickly through the book. I LOVE hating on characters and I absolutely hated on Shep ...more
Whoever is writing the synopses for his books should get a raise! I'm serious I had to read this book like immediately after reading that synopsis. I was a little scared though that it wouldn't live up to the high expectations I acquired after reading it but it got pretty damn close. Definitely not a bad start for a debut! My only complaint really is that all of the characters were so unlikable I didn't really have anyone to root for. If they all died in that room it really wouldn't have made on ...more
Saw meets Agatha Christie, in Chris McGeorge's debut tale Guess Who . Morgan Sheppard is a famous television detective, made notorious after figuring out a murder when he was a child. Flash-forward to the present day, Morgan is now living the life of an A-list celebrity in the UK. His television career has become more sensationalized as time progressed—think Maury, but probably classier. Morgan has wealth and he has fame, but consequently, that also creates enemies and rivalries. Morgan wakes u ...more
The plot seems exciting but is ridiculous, but what else is new in the latest trend of thrillers full of twists, unsympathetic characters and hardly no suspense. The more plot has to be explained in this book, the more messy it becomes with all these unbelievable twists. After being locked up in a room with a body and 5 people, one of which is the killer, and only 3 hours to solve the murder otherwise the whole building will be blown up, our flawed drugs and alcohol addicted hero starts to inves ...more
„Człowiek bez demonów przeszłości nie jest prawdziwym człowiekiem.”
Komu tęskno do klasycznych fabuł kryminalnych, ten w „Zgadnij kto” odnajdzie odpowiedź na swoje potrzeby. Chris McGeorge debiutuje intrygującą, współczesną historią, która wciąga, fascynuje i doprowadza czytelnika do białej gorączki swoją morderczą zagadką. Być może zabrakło tutaj błyskotliwości detektywa, ale diaboliczny złoczyńca sprytnie ciągnie wszystkich za swoje sznurki. A wszystko to w starym, dobrym dopracowanym stylu, za ...more
While I disliked the main character, figured out the killer was within the first hundred pages, since the interview scene was just too obvious, and found this book to be a bit absurd, I liked it more than I expected and shall rate it 3.5 stars! I love authors that start their books off hot and heavy and do not get tired half way through, and that is exactly what Chris McGeorge did. Guess Who was a fun thriller and I enjoyed what a fast paced read this novel was because each chapter ended with me ...more
3.5 stars. Thanks to NetGalley and Harlequin Publishing for an advance copy of this cleverly plotted locked room mystery. It is reminiscent of the old fashioned locked room mysteries of my youth but with a modern twist.
The main character is Morgan Sheppard who gained fame for solving the murder of a teacher when he was 11 years old. He was given a reality show where he pretends to solve problems, but I fact the TV staff does the work and presents the solutions to him frequently by cue cards on ...more
This is the most fun I’ve had with a crime novel in AGES. It is literally like a game of Guess Who but with blood and death and destruction and a hotel room you just can’t escape from – all the suspects are there along with a dead body and all they have to do is work out which of them is a killer. Simple. Or not…
Guess Who is an intelligent, immersive whodunnit – most excellent plotting allows you to solve the mystery if you are paying attention but distracts you with things like blood and hyster ...more
