La vita di Julie Brookman sembra perfetta: un fidanzato attento, genitori affettuosi e ottimi voti a scuola. Davanti a lei un futuro roseo. La vita di Cora, invece, è un inferno: prima un padre violento, poi un marito crudele e psicopatico che l’ha tormentata senza pietà fino a farle credere di essere poco più di una marionetta nelle sue mani, una moglie follemente devota. Per lei non sembra esistere una via d’uscita. Julie e Cora sono due donne agli antipodi. Ma una notte le loro strade si incrociano tragicamente. Rinchiuse nella stessa casa, dovranno imparare ad avvicinarsi e conoscersi per rimettere insieme i pezzi della loro vita e, forse, trovare un modo per liberarsi.
Dall’autrice di Dopo, un thriller che esplora con maestria la sottile linea che separa vittima e carnefice.

Ah, the dreaded second book! Half of me didn’t even want to read this because I was so worried that I would compare it to The Never List which I recently put in a list of my top 20 books of the last few years. But I tried to put those feelings to the side and read this on its own merits. And while i Leggi tutto
This novel is very character driven. There are three characters (Julie, Cora and Adam) who are the main focus but there was actually one that I felt this novel was really most about and – here’s a surprise – it wasn’t the girl kept captive. Don’t get me wrong, I felt for Julie, the girl that got abd Leggi tutto
I liked the author's previous title, The Never list, although the characters weren't perfect, it suprised me with it's unexpected twists and turns. I hoped that she would have ironed out the character issues in her second book, but unfortunately this was only okay for me. Although it was suspenseful Leggi tutto

3.5* I loved The Never List. This was a good story and I did enjoy it for the most part, though there always felt like there was something missing that I can't put my finger on. The ending was way to abrupt and left too many loose ends after such a long build up, while I like this sometimes with a s Leggi tutto
Thank you to netgalley and the publishers for allowing me to read an arc of this book. I loved The Never List and recommend it to everyone so when I saw this I was really excited to read it. The rest of my TBR was instantly ignored. Right from the start a creepy tone was set and I was swept up in th Leggi tutto
I would have given more stars if it wasn't for the ending. I was really shocked when I turned the page and found the booked had just abrubtly ended. There were too many loose ends still. Apart from that it was a very good read. Julie is abducted one evening late, at a train station. When they get to Leggi tutto
A fast read, based on an implausible concept of human psychology, with a frustrating end.
