British author Pinborough (Murder) effectively shifts perspectives between two complex characters in this twisty psychological thriller set in North London. Louise Barnsley is chagrined to learn that the hunky man who kissed her in a bar turns out to be her new, married boss, therapist David Martin. Louise and David agree that the flirtation would be just a onetime thing, but their interactions become more complicated when David's gorgeous wife, Adele, bumps into Louise and cultivates her friendship. Sections set in different time frames provide an ominous backdrop for the triangle, with references to dirt under fingernails and things having been done "that could not be undone." Despite her deepening bond with Adele, Louise is unable to successfully repress her attraction to David, even as he shows sides of his personality that disturb her. Pinborough will keep even veteran genre readers guessing about which members of the trio, if any, are providing trustworthy accounts of their pasts and presents.

This effective and deeply plotted psychological thriller nearly pulls it off before making a few twists too many at the very end, but getting there is so juicy and so much fun, you might not mind. Take a chance on this one.

Keeps you guessing till the end! Good read.

Currently reading this book and enjoying it, but quite annoyed that someone crossed out many words and phrases to make their own corrections. Seems very disrespectful, arrogant and is very distracting. I did really enjoy this book and it kept me on my toes until the end, it was hard to put down.

All marriages have secrets. Even "perfect" ones. Louise has uncovered some contradictory and unsettling information about her perfect boss, his perfect wife, and their perfect marriage.

This has to be one of my favorite books I've ever read. Definitely wasn't expecting the ending, or the double twist.

Wow. Didn't see that ending coming. Great book. Will definitely be looking for more by this author.

A terrific psychological thriller with a completely unexpected sci fi twist!

This is hands down the best book I've ever read. The twist made me go back and read it twice.. and there's a twist on top of the twist! Definitely worth the read.

I found the book a real page turner but the end was a real letdown. I was expecting a real twist but not the way the author portrayed. I ended up feeling let down and sorry that I wasted my time on something whereby the ending was just too far out.

This twisty mystery full of crazies can get a bit much. Everyone is surprisingly daft but at the end of the day it was an entertaining ride and I did like it.
