But he also has his secrets. That's why Paul has promised his wife a romantic weekend getaway. He proclaims this day, a warm Friday in May, will be the best day ever.
Paul loves his wife, really, he does. But he also wants to get rid of her. And with every hour that passes, Paul ticks off another stage in his elaborately laid plan....

Critic reviews

"Chilling, satisfying suspense." (Good Housekeeping)
"A tensely written, shocking book that will hold readers on the edge of their seats to the very last page." (Publishers Weekly)
"Fast-paced, dark, and slightly disturbing, you won't be able to put this book down until its jaw-dropping ending.... Absolutely brilliant!" (Kerry Lonsdale, Wall Street Journal best-selling author of Everything We Keep)

The narrator kept the underlying feeling of menace brilliantly. A very different but enjoyable story.

Brilliantly written & engrossing.

You would think the author has had many years of experience of working with people with narcissistic personality disorder it's so well written but I don't think she has. Unless she has had personal experience of course. I'm glad that she recognised that although highly dangerous, someone with Paul's condition is highly susceptible to failure and a failure to see the obvious due to his literally blinding narcissism. A trait which many stories and movies ignore for storytelling reasons. I have only one small gripe which is I honestly don't thing Paul would have been able to successfully take down an ex special ops guy with a surprise stranglehold...
