A dark, destructive and dismal psychological noir thriller.
Well- written with a simple, compelling plot and vivid, distinctive characters who make an impact, yet the characters are soulless and cruel, and it’s impossible to empathise with them. The plot themes centre around, infidelity, domestic abuse, child abuse and toxic relationships. It is not for everyone; I wouldn’t have read it if I’d known it featured child abuse.
In the style of a Scandinavian thriller, it compels at the beginning, but is overly complicated as it progresses, slowing the pace. Short chapters from multi-points of view help the pacing, and the twists are memorable. Not something to read if you’re feeling down because this will drag you down further.
The story writing skill is evident, but the subject matter isn’t for me.
I received a copy of this book from HQ via NetGalley in return for an honest review.
