I had read a little bit about The Family Man before I started reading it, and I was intrigued to see how the blurb would allow the storyline to pan out. Dom is a dependable family man, father to Daisy and wife to Emma. Dom and his friend Andy regularly go cycling together and make an odd friendship. Andy is carefree and single and insists he loves the single life, whereas Dom loves his family life, but wishes that he had the freedom of Andy.
Sadly that would never happen and his wife and daughter are dragged into his web of lies and danger before too long. The only way to survive is to run, so that’s what they do, Andy, Dom, Daisy and Amy. Will they get out of this unscathed?
The Family Man is the first book by T.J. Lebbon I have read, I like his writing style as it allowed me to engage with the characters quickly. I was a little worried about how a ten year old girl was dealing with the storyline of the book, and perhaps this was a little far fetched in places, but overall it was written very well and pulled me right into the thick of the drama.
There were a lot of characters, and we also veered off tangent to learn about a different side of the danger from a different perspective which was nice, if again a little far fetched with the conclusion, however it didn’t detract anything away from me as a reader enjoying the suspense.
I made a small guess at how it might have ended, and whilst I was wrong on a couple of guesses earlier in the book, the final conclusion didn’t come as much of a surprise to me.
