The Abigail Affair


How did I get it?:
I downloaded it free on my Kindle.


Toby Robinson, twenty-two and broke, lands a job as deckhand on a Russian billionaire’s yacht. On his first night aboard he is framed for the murder of a guest. And that’s just the start of his problems. His attractive crewmate Julia seems to be the only one on his side – but can he trust her? With his mobile phone confiscated, armed only with a winning smile and a flair for mixing cocktails, can Toby foil the sinister international conspiracy that threatens to entangle him? It’s New Year’s Eve and something terrible will happen at midnight. Time is running out, and so are Toby’s options …


This is the first book I’ve read by Timothy Frost. His writing style is very easy to read. I thought The Abigail Affair had moments of brilliance, but towards the middle I began to lose interest, although it does pick up again towards the end. I think the trouble with this book is that it is so far-fetched. I know it’s fiction, but I like to believe in the characters, especially the main one, and for me, I didn’t ‘get’ Toby. However, I do think The Abigail Affair is a decent read. It’s easy to read and holds the reader’s curiosity enough to power through the book.

Would I recommend it?
