I was pretty sure from the blurb that I would enjoy this book. What I wasn't so sure about was if the book would stand out from the rest as the market is fairly saturated with psychological thrillers with a twist. I found the main
character quite intriguing although for some reason I had pictured her as older than her late thirties. I found myself being sucked into her life, limited as it was by agoraphobia. I was very pleased with myself when about half way through I spotted the twist.
I wasn't so self-congratulatory by the end as the twist was turned on its head and I was proved wrong. This just goes to show that there is still room for well written thrillers and I love being proved wrong. This book will have you guessing and just when
you've worked it out, it will throw in another twist. Very enjoyable and cleverly done.
