Disclaimer opening line: Catherine braces herself, but there is nothing left to come up.
Catherine opens the book, starts reading, and realizes, she is the main character. It seems Stephen Brigstocke is out for revenge for the death of his son. But he fails to see the truth until is is nearly too late. Any resemblance to actual persons, living or dead, is not purely coincidental.
Imagine if the next thriller you opened was all about you. ‘An addictive novel with shades of Gone Girl’ Sunday Times When an intriguing novel appears on Catherine’s bedside table, she curls up and begins to read. But as she turns the pages she is horrified to realize she is a key character, a main player. This story will reveal her darkest secret. A secret she thought no one else knew…
I must say that I did not enjoy the book at first. But as I had nothing else to read, I stuck to it. And I am really glad that I did. The truth was surprising and towards the end of the book, I was loathe to put it down.
Disclosure: I was sent the book to review by Random Random House South Africa. I was not required to write a positive review. This post is in line with my blogging policy.
