Summary

Coming in 2021: the mind-bending new thriller from the number-one best-selling author of Dear Child.

It's over, my angel. Today I'm going to die. Just like her. He's won.

It's been years since Nadja Kulka was convicted of a cruel crime. After being released from prison, she's wanted nothing more than to live a normal life: nice flat, steady job, even a few friends. But when one of those friends, Laura von Hoven - free-spirited beauty and wife of Nadja's boss - kills her lover and begs Nadja for her help, Nadja can't seem to be able to refuse.

The two women make for a remote house in the woods, the perfect place to bury a body. But their plan quickly falls apart and Nadja finds herself outplayed, a pawn in a bizarre game in which she is both the perfect victim and the perfect murderer....

Dark secrets past and present collide in this haunting novel of guilt and retribution from the internationally best-selling author of Dear Child.

Tedious

I didn't even finish this book as the story was so convoluted and drawn out it took all my patience to get half way through. The disparate threads started to make sense but I found the male narrator so awful I couldn't listen any more. He made the characters pantomime - like and it was so grating. I may have finished it if I had actually bought the book and read it ( but not sure!) but couldn't listen any more.

It’s over

Interminable. Well, that is ten hours I’m not getting back! Had it been less convoluted it may have been okay.
