"Do you really believe that, Anna? I can see the doubt in your eyes, the guilt. Was it really a natural instinct to protect?"'
Between memories from the past and the present story, this thriller becomes a quite interesting read!
Anna is newly divorced and the first days to return work after maternity leave she will kill someone to protect her little one... everyone will have an opinion about it, and not all of them good! This was an interesting starting point, would you trust someone who killed to protect their baby? This is quite a question, because I really don't know, I am not sure if I would be strong enough to kill to protect, to die, yes, but killing is a strong word and you never know what you can do in a pressure moment!
Anna will not have just the attention of everyone because she killed, but because it seems that there's a killer that is searching for her attention and is ready to kill again, after 20 year of being inactive...
Anna has a dysfunctional family, but everything will be centred in the suicide of her father that was investigating the Ophelia's killer, did he know anything, was he the killer... so many questions!
Between the depressing mother, the resentful brother, the "helpful" brother of the dead boy and her grandmother, Anna will have to unravel the identity of the killer and some dark secrets if she wants to continue her life!
This is one of those books that you suspect from everyone, even from Anna! and that would be an amazing and suspenseful movie!
With some surprising twists and a lot of suspense, this book will keep you guessing till the last page.
