Catherine has been enjoying the single life for long enough to know a good catch when she sees one. Gorgeous, charismatic, spontaneous - Lee seems almost too perfect to be true. And her friends clearly agree, as each in turn falls under his spell. But there is a darker side to Lee. His erratic, controlling and sometimes frightening behaviour means that Catherine is increasingly isolated. Driven into the darkest corner of her world, and trusting no one, she plans a meticulous escape. Four years later, struggling to overcome her demons, Catherine dares to believe she might be safe from harm. Until one phone call changes everything. This is an edgy and powerful first novel, utterly convincing in its portrayal of obsession, and a tour de force of suspense.

A bit confusing right at the beginning but then I couldn't stop reading, slowed down in the middle, and then it took off! A great read.

This is an amazing book. I found it very haunting. It goes back and forth between past and present but for me that just added to the great story.
A story I won't soon forget.

a lot of back and forth, but I did like it and was able to read through it quick as I didn't want to put it down. Abusive and controlling and obsession in a relationship with a good ending

An intense story that weaves Catherine's past with her abusive boyfriend with her present, in which she struggles to overcome the psychological effects of the abuse. The beginning of the book is a little hard to get through, as the story jumps from past to present, but you quickly get used to the jumps as the story narrows to a captivating conclusion.

This book is fantastic. It took me a few chapters to get into the time lines since it jumps from past to presence but once I got a feel for it, I couldn't put it down! I have recommended this book to so many of my friends.

This book has some very choppy writing and is hard to get used to at the beginning. Once you get past the author's jumping back and forth, the plot actually has a chance to come out for air and it's actually quite good

One of the best thrillers I’ve read in years! With excellent plot development, it grips you from beginning to end! The characters are very believable and the plot felt plausible. While very gripping and intense, as it deals with difficult issues of domestic violence and obsessive love, the author leaves you wanting to hurry to finish. The debut novel from Elizabeth Haynes, I cannot wait to read her other thrillers.

Fantastic read. Took me a while to get into it but after a while I could not put it down. I finished it within a few days and thoroughly enjoyed it.
