Oh wow, this is the kind of book that makes you question everything in the world and trust no one. And I do mean no one. This is anything unlike I have ever read and I loved every minute of it, I ended up reading this in one sitting.
After the demise of Rich, everything is in chaos, the business, the family, his friends and everything he worked towards. Everyone just seems to have their own agenda and only care about themselves, it is also intriguing the way Rich dies, your constantly left in 'how, what?' mode. Nothing seems to make sense but then it does...
Tatty really surprised me, I expected her to be one of those weak characters who really just cry all the time, that can be a little off putting. But she is nothing like that, she is strong, hot headed, resilient, stubborn and really finds herself after Rich dies. There are a lot of things she doesn't know about her husband Rich, but she really rises up to the situation to take care of things and her family.
Another character that really I adored was Frank, I really admire people who are incredibly loyal even after the person dies, it is not a very easy thing to do so I have great respect for people who do it. He might seem big and intimidating for his size, but he really does care and would do anything for those he loves.
The plot takes an interesting twist as Rich is shown to be playing the game, knowing how to bend the rules and where to avoid any suspicions whilst also gaining his own advantage. He is involved in every crime possible; drug dealing, money laundering, fraud etc. Everything becomes a problem once he dies and secrets come to the surface. The pace was a little slow at the beginning, but you get quite hooked in to the story early on (Ben and Sam are exceptional characters and I love their support for their mother Tatty- both of them are awesome).
I have never read any of Brett's books before, but I completely fell in love with his style of writing. I love how equally dark and alluring the cover as well as the story is, it is mysterious but it grabs you by the throat and compels you to finish the story.
Time to Win is a dark compelling story that once you start reading you can't put it down, it is exceptional in captivating its audience with its twisted tale and ruthless characters.
Until next time my friends! :)
