An emotive novel that will not be easily forgotten
At under 200 pages it's perfect for a single sitting on a winter evening, an easy, engrossing slip of a thing that explores the ultimate taboo.
Noli creates a tightly controlled thriller. Unease stirs from the opening paragraph... Noli stops just short of melodrama to serve up a tale of distressing plausibility.
A slight discomfort at what might be uncovered turns into a mounting feeling of dread. Yet at the same time it's impossible not to be fascinated by this woman... You'll be compelled to keep reading to discover the truth.
An extremely harrowing and uncomfortable read... Noli's writing is sparse but certainly not lacking. An enthralling and yet terrifying read... one that, even as a man, will stay with me for a long time to come.
a clever psychological thriller that puts inadmissible thoughts into well-chosen words.
