A gripping page-turner that reaches a whole new level of psychological thriller.
“After the horrors of the past, Louisa Williams is desperate to make a clean start…Her husband Sam is dead…she never thought that he would betray her with a woman like Sophie. And now Sophie is determined to take all that Louisa has left. She wants to destroy her reputation and to take what she thinks is owed her – the life she would have had if Sam had lived.”
This is a twisty, disturbing and shocking read – I loved it. The main characters are skilfully developed through a compelling present day story and flashbacks to the origins of the drama. The opening is one of the most memorable I’ve read – a real shout out loud moment.
Even minor characters are drawn so well that they play a part in creating a believable background to the events that unfold. The everyday activity going on around the nightmare scenario being played out by the main characters makes it all the more real.
I don’t want to go into details for fear of spoiling the effect of reading this book with no clue as to what’s happening. But I strongly recommend it to anyone who enjoys trying to spot the twists in a clever plot.
