A dark, unsettling thriller about a young female journalist drawn into the life of a troubled Hollywood A-lister.
The perfect summer read for fans of Sabine Durrant, Erin Kelly and Louise Doughty.
You have to know when to say no. That’s one of the first things they tell you. But from the first day I arrived in Los Angeles, I said yes.
Jessica Harris is a struggling Hollywood reporter hungry for her big break. When her editor asks her to profile movie star Clark Conrad, Jessica is sure her luck is on the turn. Clark is an A-lister with access to everyone. If Jessica can impress him, she’s made it.
When she arrives at Clark’s mansion in the Hollywood Hills, he is just as she always imagined. Charming, handsome yet disarmingly vulnerable. But then things take a darker turn. Clark’s world is not as straightforward as it seems and Jessica’s puff piece soon becomes something much more delicate – and dangerous. As Jessica draws herself deeper into Clark’s inner circle, events begin to spiral out of her control.
Transfixing, insightful and unsettling, Through His Eyes drops you into the mind of a young woman with everything to play for – and everything to lose…
I never DNF a novel and then review. To not finish an author’s work but still offer an opinion is wrong, wrong, wrong. So I did read to the end, hopeful, but unfortunately I did not enjoy the story as much as the blurb suggested I would.
Did I miss something?
That said, I was forced to read this story in snatches, mostly due to my own time/travel constraints. This may have affected my interpretation of the narrative.
Jessica certainly found herself in a position where she needed to make a life-altering choice regarding movie star, Clark Conrad. So the conflict was there.
I think I’d like to read this story again when I can give it my full attention and not be pressured by review/publishing deadlines.
