The Long Weekend

🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 Incredibly engrossing - I pretty much read this one straight through. From the totally gripping introduction, through the twists and turns that fooled me (not once, but twice!), all the way to the climactic and satisfying ending, this is a great read that will see you through an afternoon,…
