Genre: Psychological Thriller
This is not just a love triangle between Adele, Louise and David, it's a dark and gripping psychological thriller that will be your worst nightmare!
Adele and David meet in a bar, he is married and is her boss, but they still don't know yet, they will have sparkles since the first moment, but David's wife is not ready to let him leave her, she will make anything to stay together, anything...!
"A thing had been done that could not be undone. A terrible necessary act. An ending and a beginning now knotted up for ever. He expected the hues of the world to change to reflect that, but the earth and heavens remained the same muted shades, and there was no tremble of anger from the trees. No weeping whisper of wind."
This is a quite an original psychological thriller, we meet David and Louise, a quite weird couple, it seems that he completely controls her... or is it just what she wants us to believe?
And the poor Adele, falling in love for the first time after her failed marriage with David, her boss... And then being Louise friend, the wife of the husband she is having an affair! She starts trusting Louise and wants to help her, like she helped her with her nightmares... but is she telling all the truth?
This is one of those books that it makes you suspicious since the first page, something is not right between Louis and David, but we don't know what... or why.
I have to say that I was totally hooked with this book, I couldn't put it down, and as the story progresses you can feel that the climax will have not just sparks, but a complete bonfire, and let me say it, be prepared for the most astonishing ending!
With some subtile clues and a very complex plot, Sarah Pinborough has created a quite amazing book, it will make you fear going to sleep!
Remember, if you love someone, set them free... or not!
