Publisher's Summary

A chilling psychological thriller for fans of Gillian Flynn, Nicci French, Sophie Hannah, S. J. Watson and Elizabeth Haynes that will haunt you long after you've finished listening....
In this dark psychological thriller, Olivia Taylor believes she has suffered the worst life can throw at her after the breakup of her marriage. Full of hope, she starts a new life with her nine-year-old daughter, Ellie, only to find the worst is yet to come.
Meeting Michael Crossman is the beginning of an unspeakable nightmare for Olivia, and her world slowly unravels. It is only through the retelling of her story that we piece together what has led her to become a mere shadow of the woman she once was.

Emding falls short<br />

I really enjoyed listening to this book, but when the plot and ending all came together, it was too much, too quick! It felt like the author was suddenly on a deadline and had to end it quickly. I felt like too many things were left undone. I needed more.

Do women like this really exist?!!?

The performance was fantastic! And normally I love Kathryn Croft, but this... the main character is a hideous excuse for a mother let alone human being. I know, we all make bad decisions, and there has to be some level of "flawed" to build the story line; however, this is just heinous. The ending didn't shock me, and like others have pointed out, it seemed rushed and thrown together just to finish the book. I'll still read and listen to Crofts books, but if you're looking for a good one, let this one pass... it's not worth it. And will likely leave you frustrated and disgruntled like so many of the others, and myself.

I hated it

Olivia is a disappointment selfish and stupid woman. I was not convinced be her relationship or the ending. The book was 90% boring and slow. Even the readers voice was boring. Don't understand why this has such great reviews. A terrible book!

Behind Closed Doors

This book was far too long and drawn out and the central character, Olivia Taylor, was weak and dreary. The relationship between Michael and Olivia was also pretty unbelievable and incredibly brutal. He seemed such a pernickerity tedious control freak that I have no idea why she craved him so much.

A bizarre denouement too. Overall: a huge disappointment.
