Summary

An absolutely gripping psychological thriller

When I arrive unannounced at my husband's studio in need of a shoulder to cry on after hearing that my best student, Alex, has died, I see a pair of wineglasses drying by the sink, and my deepest fear is confirmed: my husband is having an affair.

Most women would fall to their knees in tears and throw him out of the house - but I just can't bring myself to do it.

Instead, I go home and cook a healthy dinner for our children, walk the dog, and unload the dishwasher without complaint. I will make him see that I'm still the woman he married; attractive, successful, the glue that holds our perfect family together. I need this marriage to work to protect a terrible secret of my own, something that would destroy everything I've already sacrificed so much for.

But when the police arrive at my door asking questions about Alex's death that I can't answer, and threatening text messages start appearing on my phone, I know that someone close has been watching me very carefully.

Nice but not impressive

The story is interesting with some nice little twists. Not a book that blew my mind, but most of the time I enjoyed listening to it.
At some times I really lost connection with the main character, Anna, because of the annoying way she dealt with certain things. Fortunately, this was only shortly and not very frequently.
Worth a daily deal price, I wouldn’t have paid the full amount though.

Frustrating but definitely worth a credit !

Frustrating because I spent so much of the book annoyed that a college associate maths professor could do so many dumb things ! Including how she continually questions why it’s necessary to understand how you arrive at a mathematical solution, and that it’s not enough to show the solution itself. We learnt this basic principle in UK maths class aged 10, so I don’t find it credible that this principle is a surprise to a college maths professor. If the main character had been better researched and showed occasional signs of intelligence, I’d have rated the book as a 5.

Definitely worth listening as the plot is very clever, in contrast to it’s mostly ditsy heroine. Great performance too.

So well written it made me anxious when listening!

I wasn't sure about this book when I started it, but by chapter 3, I was into it. As the story progressed and things started going wrong, I was feeling really anxious as I listened, which must be a reflection of the writing skills of the author to make me feel that way! This is a book with a back story that's different to the norm, and a main character you're not sure whether to believe in or not, and is definitely worth a credit.

Great, if unbelievable, read.

I did enjoy this book but like others I felt the ending was rushed and unbelievable. Not a clever twist, but a rather clumsy and over the top explosion that was full of holes. I like an ending to tie up any loose ends, this left so many questions and in my view was not in any way believable. Anna was very very annoying, and unbelievably stupid, which ,again like others said, flew in the face of her supposed intellect. Some of her antics were just preposterously idiotic. However, I did keep listening and found the book funny in places, gripping and exciting. My first book by this author and I would read another.

This had me gripped

I loved that the main character, Anna, was a mess but deeply interesting, smart but also fallible - this doesn’t go where you think it’s going, and I loved the path it took to get there.
