Kate Forman has an
enviable life; a loving family and perfect husband, Paul. But one night she finds Paul drunk and
covered in blood, mumbling about having killed something – or someone. When a young attractive woman who works
for Paul is found murdered, Kate’s suspicions about what he has really done
send her on an increasingly desperate search for the truth that threatens to
demolish her carefully constructed life.
Kate is the narrator
of this story, and we follow her plight as she finds herself wondering if her
husband really is capable of murder. She comes across as a very real character, with human flaws and foibles. Kate’s biggest insecurity stems from
the fact her “perfect” life came into being because her husband left his more
attractive and glamorous first wife for her, and a niggling doubt exists within
her that if he did it once, he’ll do it again. Who’s to say Paul won’t get bored of her and leave her for
someone else – like the attractive young woman who’s been murdered? It makes Kate seem all the more real,
and reminds us that the people whose lives we covet are always hiding secrets
and insecurities of their own.
This is a tightly
constructed, suspenseful thriller that will have you turning pages and keep you
guessing all the way to the dramatic conclusion.
