I received a copy of this book from the publisher.
The beginning of this story is compelling and intriguing. Then the plot moves to Alice, a solicitor meeting an anonymous prospective client in Bath. The meeting is strange, and it establishes Alice as an unreliable protagonist. She has an abusive past and is an alcoholic, but she advocates for those who others would turn away. The atmosphere becomes increasingly claustrophobic as you wonder about her relationship with Luke and the secrets they hide. The suspense intensifies with each page turn, and the twists are impactful.
Whilst the characters have many unlikeable traits, they are relatable and believably flawed. I like the plot’s originality and the increasingly dark and menacing ethos it achieves.
Jane is a coffee, chocolate and red wine lover, and a late-night writer of compelling, passionate, and emotionally charged fiction.
Jane’s books may contain love, hate, violence, death, passion, a little swearing, and an ending you are never going to forget.
