Summary

Andy Boyd thinks he is the luckiest man alive. Widowed with a young child after his wife dies in childbirth, he is certain that he will never again experience true love. Then he meets Anna. Feisty, fun and beautiful, she's his perfect match.... And she loves his son, too.
When Andy ends up in the hospital on his wedding night, he receives his first clue that Anna is not all that she seems. He ignores it; a dangerous mistake that could cost him everything. A brave, deeply moving psychological thriller which marks a stunning departure for one of Scotland's top crime writers.

Domestic abuse noir

A very realistic, greatly disturbing account of domestic violence that will stay with you for a long time after finishing the novel. I found the reasoning why the abuser should get away with everything and not be reported quite scary. This must be how many of the ill-treated people excuse their partner's actions and the thought of this going on behind closed doors more often than can be imagined is a very frightening aspect of married life.
It's an incredible book that I can't recommend highly enough!
Steven Cree is definitely a suitable narrator for this book!

Ring of truth

This was a difficult listen but there was an authentic tone to Andy's problems with Anna. It was very well narrated but I thought the ending was rather contrived although overall a good listen.

Too Painful to Finish

I have never had this experience before.

I read the reviews, and there were a LOT of 5-star comments. But I didn't understand what the book was about.

I THOUGHT the husband would discover a mystery about his wife. I did not understand that - on his way to learning her secret - he would be physically and mentally abused, repeatedly, in secret and then in front of their small children. I did NOT understand that - to get to the end of this book - I would have to watch this normal man reduce in size and confidence and personality. The humiliation was graphic and terribly disturbing, and it never let up. Even now, as I recall the first 2/3 of the book, my stomach has begun to hurt. I imagine that this is how one would feel if one were forced to watch a terrible person beat a defenseless dog for YEARS!

I do not know the ending, and I would like to find out if the husband and children escaped with any semblance of a life. But I cannot listen to one more word.

Ugh.
