Four people walked into the dining room that night. One would never leave.
Matthew: the perfect husband.
Titus: the perfect son.
Charlie: the perfect illusion.
Rachel: the perfect stranger.
Charlie didn’t want her at the book club. Matthew wouldn’t listen.
And that’s how Charlie finds himself slumped beside his husband’s body, their son sitting silently at the dinner table, while Rachel calls 999, the bloody knife still gripped in her hand.
I liked the sound of the plot, completely original to the psychological thrillers I am use to but it keeps it fresh and exciting reading something different. Four people that walk into a dining room and one never leaves, you start asking yourself all these questions even before you pick up the book. Like why? what did they do? so many questions but then you want to start reading and through out the book everything becomes apparent. We learn about each character throughout the book, Matthew is Charlie’s husband and Titus is Matthew’s son, Rachel is a stranger but does she know more about their life than they do? I did find it a little slow towards the middle but the ending made up for it. You won’t in a million years guess what the twist is. A very fresh and interesting read.
I received an ARC copy of this book for an honest review. Thank you to Netgalley and One More Chapter for sending me a copy of this book.

Glad to see you enjoyed this one! I almost requested the ARC but stopped myself because I really don’t have the time to read the ones I already have! It looks great though and hopefully I will read it at some point!
