I chose this book for my Book of the Month for August 2017 because I love psychological thrillers. They really have the ability to grab me and keep hold until the end. I may have also chosen this book a little because of the terrorism element. This may seem a bit odd, but a part of my Master’s degree was studying terrorism, so this subject is always interesting to me.
I read this book in two sittings because I found myself wanting to know what was going to happen next. I was a little disappointed though that there were a few subplots that were not wrapped up by the end of the book. This was not enough of an issue to ruin the book for me, though the reason for the 3.5 rating, and I still found the book to be very suspenseful and enjoyable. I found that I was able to easily able put myself into Joan’s situation and thought about what I would do if I were her. Sadly, we live in a world today that this type of scenario is a potential reality.
This book really demonstrates the bond and protective nature between and mother and her child and asks the question, what would you do to protect your child?
