About the book:

Trusted surgeon. Loving wife. Murderer?

Before my world came crashing down, I had it all. The successful career I dreamed of. The beautiful red-brick home where I could relax in front of the fire. The handsome, devoted husband whose blue eyes and charming smile always made me feel safe.

As I call time of death, my voice is steady. My colleagues stand hushed around me, their eyes on me, confused, concerned.

I have never lost a patient until today.

My hands tremble inside their gloves. I slide down the cold tiled walls, my heart racing in my chest.

I have never hated a patient until today.

But what choice did I have, once I recognized him?

And what will I do to protect myself, if someone learns the truth?

A totally gripping psychological thriller that will have you racing through the pages, gasping for breath until the final jaw-dropping twist. If you love Freida McFadden, Shari Lapena and The Girl on the Train, you won’t be able to put this down.

My Review

Oh my, I was hooked from the start.  A heart surgeon with a perfect record of saving her patients that loses her first one?  Then we learn she recognized the patient.  I wanted to know who, what, when, where and how.   Was it an accident? Did she do it on purpose?  How does she know him?  I love when an author can stun me and in this one, she did.  I won’t go into any details because of potential spoilers, but I am usually able to guess and limit things down to a few different guesses on the outcome and love when the outcome is something other than what I have suspected at some point.

I didn’t like the main character, Anne.  Yet I still was invested in the story.  That is a fine line to walk and this was well done.  The complex story kept me guessing.  As soon as I had an idea where it was headed, there was another layer or twist to change my thinking.

I both read and listened to this one, as time permitted and loved Gwendolyn Druyor’s narration.  I think this is my first listen to one of her audiobooks and she kept me interested in the story.

I can’t wait to read Leslie Wolfe’s next novel and think if you like complex, unpredictable mysteries, this one is worth your time!
