One of the most disturbing books I have read in a long time. I don't usually choose to bring this kind of evil into my life, but once I started reading, it was like a train wreck that I couldn't look away from. I had to know how the main character, Grace, was going to survive the situation that she is in.
Jack and Grace are the perfect couple: beautiful house, beautiful friends, beautiful dinner parties. The thing is, there is something wrong with Grace. She makes plans that she never keeps. She never uses the phone. She rarely leaves the house except to see her disabled sister. Things are not as perfect as they seem.
I recognized right away what Jack was, but the breadth and depth of his depravity were hard to read and impossible to understand. I absolutely loved Millie's character. She was the smartest one of all, she had it all figured out and even helped her sister find her way out. I literally felt sick reading parts of this book. It is something that will stay with me for a very long time because as a person who worked with victims of domestic violence, I know that there are many Jack's out there.
