 My Review
The Intruder is my first book by Daniel Hurst, but it won't be my last. This story was quite thrilling, and I enjoyed every moment of it.
The Intruder tells the story of Maria and William, a happily married couple with two lovely children and a business they run together that makes them tons of money. They care about their employees and treat them well, and their clients are always happy with the work they do. But one ex-employee doesn't think Maria and William are all that great. They fired him after a complaint, even though David insisted he was innocent. But now, David is out for revenge. He's going to make them pay for ruining his life. Too bad David underestimates the couple...
When David invades their home, Maria and William will do anything to survive. But soon, everyone's lives are flipped when secrets start to come to light, and that's when the real fun begins.
This was a tense little cat-and-mouse game that I rather liked. It's a story of secrets, lies, and betrayal, and it's also a story that makes you wonder just how much you can actually trust people, no matter how close to them you are. 
The characters are fascinating and well-written. And when things start to go downhill, that's when they get really interesting with how they behave and such. 
The plot is easy to get sucked into, and I found I didn't want to put the book down, because I was so invested in what was going on with the characters. 
If you're looking for an exciting thriller to read, definitely check out The Intruder.
4.5 stars!
