Yvonne Carmichael has worked hard to achieve the life she always wanted: a high-flying career in genetics, a beautiful home, a good relationship with her husband and their two grown-up children.
Then one day she meets a stranger at the Houses of Parliament and, on impulse, begins a passionate affair with him – a decision that will put everything she values at risk.
At first she believes she can keep the relationship separate from the rest of her life, but she can’t control what happens next. All of her careful plans spiral into greater deceit and, eventually, a life-changing act of violence.
I decided to read this book on holiday as before I left I watched the first episode on TV and was intrigued about what would happen next. I am glad I did read the book as I thought it was very well written. I found the story very enthralling, and was excited about what would happen. I liked the way it turned into a psychological thriller and how we make the choices that we do in our everyday lives.
