Five Star Review
Beautifully written psychological thriller.
Gorgeous, taut turn of phrasing and a real gothic feel to the story. It has such a creepy sense of foreboding to it.
I really needed to know what was going to happen to her when she went to the Villa but I was scared to find out.
Loved this book and was entranced and saddened by the story of Nell and Joe. I really wanted to help them. But how?
A very authentic tale of what can happen to those that slip through the system in this very cruel world.
