Review: The Candidate by Daniel Pembrey

By Nate LaClaire

Awaking alone in his Luxembourg apartment, Nick Thorneycroft quickly realizes three things: first, there is a ladies’ undergarment on the floor; second, he has more than a bit of a hangover; and, third, he has no idea where either of them came from. What follows in Daniel Pembrey’s Kindle Single, The Candidate, is a fast-paced story of intrigue that will keep you on the edge of your seat until the very last page.

Nick, a headhunter at a financial firm, is being pressured to hire a candidate for an important position, but when he suspects that the candidate may have been involved in his memory loss, he wonders what she is really up to.

I could not put this book down. It is a well-written thriller and my only complaint is that it wasn’t longer. I now have a full-length novel by Daniel Pembrey on my Kindle and am looking forward to reading it!

If you enjoy a good international thriller, I recommend that you read this one today.

Warning: The Candidate contains some sexual references and foul language. If that is not your cup of tea, you may want to skip this one.
