ABOUT THE BOOK:
Four people walked into the dining room that night. One would never leave.
Matthew: the perfect husband.
Titus: the perfect son.
Charlie: the perfect illusion.
Rachel: the perfect stranger.
Charlie didn’t want her at the book club. Matthew wouldn’t listen.
And that’s how Charlie finds himself slumped beside his husband’s body, their son sitting silently at the dinner table, while Rachel calls 999, the bloody knife still gripped in her hand.
Agatha Christie meets Donna Tartt in this nerve-shredding domestic noir thriller that weaves a sprawling web of secrets around an opulent West London world and the dinner that ends in death.
Addictive, thrilling, entertaining, shocking, edge of your seat chills! 5 words that describe this book perfectly! Meet Matthew and Charlie. A married couple living their best life. They have a son together, Titus. One day they randomly meet a friendly woman named Rachel and they quickly become friends. Or at least she becomes friends with Matthew. Not so much with Charlie. Charlie is skeptical of this woman they have just met and is baffled by how quickly she becomes friends with his Matthew.
I enjoyed how the beginning of the book starts with a huge revelation, and then the rest of the story unfolds to reveal what happened at the dinner party that resulted in what happened and revealed at the beginning of the novel. I found myself flipping through the pages to uncover the mystery of what happened at the dinner party and how things transpired and went oh so wrong.
So many twists and turns and I loved it. There is so much deceit, lies, betrayal, secrets, and half truths in this book, you will find yourself guessing and second guessing what is going on. Who is responsible? Do you truly know those you are closest to, or do you only see what they want you to see? With a shocking twist that you won’t see coming, I cannot recommend this book enough!
MY RATING: 5/5 stars
