The Assistant By S. K. Tremayne

The Assistant By S. K. Tremayne


She watches you constantly.
Newly divorced Jo is delighted to move into her best friend’s spare room almost rent-free. The high-tech luxury Camden flat is managed by a meticulous Home Assistant, called Electra, that takes care of the heating, the lights – and sometimes Jo even turns to her for company.

She knows all your secrets.
Until, late one night, Electra says one sentence that rips Jo’s fragile world in two: ‘I know what you did.’ And Jo is horrified. Because in her past she did do something terrible. Something unforgivable.

Now she wants to destroy you.
Only two other people in the whole world know Jo’s secret. And they would never tell anyone. Would they? As a fierce winter brings London to a standstill, Jo begins to understand that the Assistant on the shelf doesn’t just want to control Jo; it wants to destroy her.

My Thoughts:

Wow what a unique story, the story centres around Jo and if she is going mad or is it the assistants? I found this read creepy and unnerving as I think anyone would do if they have a home hub in their home. Some things with these home hubs just don’t sit right with me. I couldn’t for the life of me work out where this story was going to lead and with Jo’s paranoia I wondered what would happen to her and her state of mind. The book is dark and by the final few chapters gets darker and a secret comes out that I couldn’t believe.

I received an ARC copy of this book for an honest review.
