Summary

Maureen O'Donnell is a psychiatric patient, stuck in an affair with Douglas, a shady therapist. She’s about to end it with him when she wakes up one morning to find him in her living room with his throat slit. Viewed by the police as both a suspect and a witness, even Maureen’s family suspects her.

Panic-stricken, she retraces Douglas' last days, finding a trail of rape and deception at a psychiatric hospital where she’d been an inmate. The patients won't talk and staff are afraid. Then a second brutalised corpse is discovered and Maureen realises that her life is in danger.

What a great story & great narration!

I love a story where nothing is swept away by someone doing something stupid. This complex, entertaining story really fits the bill. And the narration is just superb, bringing to life in your imagination a wide range of characters. Looking forward to the next in the series!

Unable to finish the book

I am afraid that I was unable to finish this book due to the narrator. I found her voice too penetrating, and shouty. Not for me.

Glasgow dwellers will love this.

Katy Anderson brought the book alive in my mind. Perfect character descriptions along side the perfect performance made me laugh, gasp and hold a wee tear. Story kept me gripped. Loved it.
