Confidence by Denise Mina book review

on 21 December 2022 0

Confidence by Denise Mina reviewed by local councillor Lisa-Marie Hughes.

The multi-award winning Denise Mina has been heralded as crime writing royalty by Val McDermid and legions of readers, and with Confidence, she certainly keeps the title intact. 

Lisa Lee, a young, urban explorer and vlogger disappears from North Berwick after posting a video from an abandoned French chateau where she finds a small, grubby metal casket in a sealed attic room.

The lost religious relic appears for sale, igniting a worldwide media frenzy.

Throughout its duration, Confidence is a frantic, thrilling adventure where we follow podcasters Anna and Fin across Europe as they seek the truth about Lisa Lee’s disappearance. All the while, someone does their utmost to stop them at all costs.

Across her repertoire of novels, Denise Mina has a particular knack for rooting stories in place and from stormy North Berwick to Paris, Hungary and back again, you feel you are right there with Anna and Fin on every step of their journey. 

In a story spanning decades and continents, its key ingredients of murder, secrecy, smuggling, con artists and complicated heroes make for a heart-racingly spectacular read. 

Confidence by Denise Mina is available to purchase now via Penguin. For more books click here.
