Be prepared, this is a tale of sexual violence and the aftermath of the couple who intervened. The book takes twists and turns as new truths are revealed and as the characters true selves slowly unwind to provide us with a clearer picture of events. However, I didn’t have much sympathy for any of the characters and found it difficult therefore to engage in the plot. I think its a book that works hard to provide thrills and chills, but it just didn’t do it for me.
This could perhaps be an absorbing holiday or travel read, but I did struggle to keep my interest going, and probably wouldn’t of pursued it if it hadn’t been for reading group.
A number of our members declared it to be contrived and in places completely unbelievable. It was very heavily plotted and there was a thread of negativity against men being the ‘bad guys’ every time.
