Grab a cuppa and enjoy Claire’s review!
Work colleague. Friend. Killer.
A successful businesswoman, Tamara enjoys her champagne lifestyle to the full. At least, that is the front she displays to the world. As well as being lonely, she’s running out of money. A promising new member of staff brings the injection of fresh blood needed to win the contract that will turn things around.
Working for Tamara is a perfect ruse for Esther. But, along with fake references and qualifications, she also has a plan for revenge. Sensing Tamara’s vulnerability, Esther uses their acquaintance as a way of getting close to someone who hurt her in the past.
Tamara is keeping things secret. Esther has a dark side she is trying to hide. For both of them, lying is a habit. But when mistakes begin to catch up with Esther, and people start dying, Tamara realises she’s chosen the wrong person to trust as a friend.
Perfect for fans of The Girlfriend, Lies and Behind Closed Doors.
Claire’s Rating: 5/5
I’ve not been disappointed by Mel Sherratt’s novels to date so when she announced she was writing a psychological thriller, I was rather excited. I love psychological thrillers; they’re my favourite kind of crime fiction. Has Mel Sherratt pulled off the side step from her usual gritty crime novels into psychological thrillers? Well I can tell you she has done it with bells on! I loved this book from the very start with the opening sequence capturing my attention and not letting it go to the final words talking of revenge!
I really felt for Tamara; she’s trying to prove herself for how she is not who her parents are. She wants to stand on her own two feet and be a modern independent woman, not the woman her parents expect her to be. It’s not easy proving yourself.
Now Esther is someone I really didn’t take to when she first came along. She’s a girl with secrets and a hidden agenda and the more I read, the more I found out. Mel Sherratt has a way drip feeding tit bits of information but not the full story. Plenty to make me keep turning the pages at a rapid pace!!
As with her other novels, Ms Sherratt has cast an element of darkness in her writing and for a psychological thriller this is a must! I would love to see more psychological thrillers from the keyboard of Ms Sherratt!!
