Exposure by Alan Russell

ExposureExposure by Alan Russell
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Thank you to Thomas & Mercer via Net Galley for this fast paced thriller. It was fast, it was that fast even I had to catch up!

Here we have British paparazzo Graham Wells hot on a scoop. He is chasing via a Paris tunnel a celebrity footballer and a woman known as Lady Godiva, as she posed nude for a photo shot at one time.
Then the car crashes.

I have to say, it brought memories back of the fatal accident of Lady Diana {princess of Wales] with her lover years ago. Very similar.

My Thoughts:

It was too much of a similar story to that fatal time we lost Princess Diana that I couldn't help comparing notes too.

YES fast paces
YES written well

No I have never read one of Alan Russells books before, doesn't mean I wouldn't try another of his, but this one really didn't do a lot for me I have to be honest.

Capturing the seedy and sordid side of life isn’t anything new for photojournalist-turned-paparazzo Graham Wells. But when a shoot turns deadly—secretly causing the car crash that takes the lives of two beloved public figures—he knows the ensuing media spotlight could easily destroy him. Fortunately, no one else knows his shameful secret except for a mysterious CIA operative, and that clandestine agent swears he’ll keep quiet…for a price.
Blackmailed into documenting the orchestrated downfalls of some of Hollywood’s biggest stars, Graham finds his role in the operation disturbingly murky. But the picture soon begins to clear and comes into horrifying focus after he prevents the suicide of celebrated actress Lanie Byrne, revealing a sprawling web of lies that reaches from the glittering lights of Hollywood to the dark political intrigue of Europe and Washington, DC.
A page-turning thriller, Alan Russell’s Exposure is a fast-paced and riveting read focusing on an international conspiracy and a truth-seeking antihero armed only with a camera.
Revised edition: This edition of Exposure includes editorial revisions.
