This is a well-crafted story with tension building throughout. Lucy and her lover, Damon, try to exonerate Lucy’s brother, who is accused of murder. The evidence is pretty damning but the more Lucy and Damon dig, the more the case looks like an elaborate setup that parallels the case when the dead lady’s husbands last wife was murdered. It is a very intricate story with many twists and lots of peaks of terror. Anna Willett is a master at creating horror and tension. There are a few issues at the end, including a personal twist for Lucy and Damon that seems unnecessary and sudden. There are also often instances where the characters have information that is not shared with the reader, which I find frustrating and which prevents the reader from having any chance of solving the puzzle before the end. Nevertheless, the book is a true page turner and will keep you on the edge of your seat. Don’t make any plans once you start this book; you will not want to put it down.
