Being on a Thriller book kick lately, I knew that I had to check out Nobody Has To Know by Frank Nappi as soon as I read it was a thriller. The fact that it shares its name with one of my favorite Honor Society songs didn’t hurt either.
The book is about Cameron (Cam), who is a high school teacher. He is one of those popular “cool” teachers that all the students love (you know the ones I mean – the one that the girls all have secret crushes on!) He has a wonderful girlfriend, Hayley but it seems like their relationship is not going as well as they would have liked anymore.
Cam ends up meeting up with one of his high school students several times which leads his life in a direction that he probably was not wanting to go in.
Cam ends up being blackmailed – someone knows his secret and if he doesn’t meet the persons demands – they will tell! Cam ends up getting wrapped up in a bunch of lies and tricks by the blackmailer and then finds out that his soon to be wife is now wrapped up in all this as well!
Of course, it is a thriller and things are not always what they seem… I won’t tell you much more than that though because I don’t want to give anything away and I think that you should check this book out for yourself! (I also liked the mention of Cam telling one of his students to read The Legend of Mickey Tussler – this book is written by the same author and I will be reviewing it in January – so stay tuned for that!)
I ended up reading this book while stuck in the dark during Hurricane Sandy just before Halloween. While you can read it any time, it was probably the perfect choice for me to be reading in a pitch black room with only the glow of the Nook!
I received a free e-copy of this book in order to write this review. I was not otherwise compensated and all opinions are my own.
