My lasting impression from this intense thriller is the tragic waste of life and potential. Even though most of the present-day action takes place in the therapist’s room, there are frequent flashbacks to past events, which add depth to the story and give insight into the two main protagonists motivations and why they find themselves in the room.
The story flows well, and you’re drawn into their lives. It’s not an exciting thriller, there is action, but most of it occurs in the past. Family tragedy and secrets are this story’s focus. The suspense is well written, and it builds until the secrets are revealed, and the situation in the room becomes explosive.
It’s hard to identify the antagonist in this story, as the title suggests their lives are riddled with lies, the plot maintains its momentum, but it is perhaps just a little longer than needed.
I received a copy of this book from Penguin UK via NetGalley in return for an honest review.
