Psychological thriller with plenty of gasp moments
My rating: 4 out of 5
Jess tries to be the perfect daughter, but when she meets a new boyfriend her mother is not impressed. Then the boyfriend disappears.
Jess’s story is told in two timelines – “Then” from when Jess met Adam, and “Now” after Adam has gone. This compelling psychological thriller is told from Jess’s perspective, and draws the reader into her relationships. Is the mother as controlling and manipulative as she seems? Was Adam as perfect as he seemed? What is real and what is in Jess’ imagination?
I was kept fully involved thoughout and enjoyed the gasp moments as events in Jess’ past were revealed, all leading to an excellent ending. What a great debut thriller from Alex Stone!
