Beth Sutton is eighteen years old when she is abducted. Held prisoner in a basement, she’s dependent on her captor for food, clothes and her very existence. As the months pass, her hatred towards her imprisoner changes to compassion.
But Beth cannot forget that her abductor is also a killer. And she has evidence to prove it…Then Beth escapes
Can Beth escape from the prison that she has found herself in?
And is there a relationship between love and fear?
I loved this from the beginning to the end, a creepy dark, psychological thriller. It is written in two different parts, during captivity and after, with each being different and very enjoyable, you really get into the captives head during the book. What a creepy guy. This is a very tense book, very well written, paced, there is not a dull moment.
In the second half, Beth´s mum is the other character, I didn´t like her much to start with, as I think the problem was that I had gotten used to Dominic, but she grew on me as the pages turned. This is a very emotional book, during the second part I wanted to scream at Beth just to get on with things, but at the same time I understood why it was difficult. Dominic is a nasty character and the author does a great job of getting that thought to the readers, he is just awful there is no love lost there.
This is a very, very good book, I wondering throughout if I would be able to survive the ordeal, or what I would do in Ursula´s shoes. This is the first book I have read by the author and I will be reading more soon.
