It’s been years since Nadja was convicted of a cruel crime. After her release from prison, she’s wanted nothing more than to live a normal life. But then a murder occurs and a remote house in the woods becomes the scene of a bizarre game – because Nadja’s past makes her the perfect victim. And the perfect murderer…
1. Patience Is A Virtue
I wouldn’t describe this book as a slow burner but it does require a substantial amount of patience, especially at the beginning when nothing seems to connect, making it a tad hard to follow the different storylines. Fortunately, the intricate plot gets clearer along the way as the author keeps feeding us, slowly but surely, bits and pieces of her cleverly-done-puzzle.
2. Let’s Talk About The Characters
It takes talent to make the reader care about unlikeable characters and the author manages to do just that.
3. Gives Me the Creeps
This is a very dark and twisted psychological thriller with a bunch of vicious characters so needless to say, it’s not for the faint-hearted.
4. Those Twisty-Twists
There is an avalanche of twists and turns in this book, to the point where, on multiple occasions throughout this chilling reading journey, I had to stop and think about what I had just read; it was fun!
5. The Final Verdict
This is a very well-written thriller, creepy and intricate and full of twists and turns that will leave your head spinning, only if you have the patience to get through the first chapters; so read at your own risk 😉
I would like to thank the Publishers, NetGalley, and the Author for sending me a copy of this book.
