Kate lives in an alcoholic stupor, dragging her hungover self from one open house to another searching for… something. But when she comes across the magnificent house from someone in her past and he senses something is wrong, she makes some dodgy decisions to investigate.
This is a thriller in the style of Girl on a Train and, like this, there is a protagonist that is hard to like, is making questionable choices, and that, despite it all, the audience kind of ends up on their side. In a manner of speaking. It’s a frustrating and annoying read, but a total page turner.
