Cora Bender killed a man on a sunny summer afternoon by the lake and in full view of her family and friends.
But why? What could have caused this quiet, lovable young mother to stab a stranger in the throat, again and again, until she was pulled off his body?
For the local police it was an open-and-shut case. Cora confessed; there was no shortage of witnesses. But Police Commissioner Rudolf Grovian refused to close the file and started his own maverick investigation. So begins the slow unravelling of Cora’s past, a harrowing descent into a woman’s private hell.
I found the first half of this book absolutely brilliant and was intrigued how it was all going to wrap up in the end, however after the first half I found it was too slow for me and a bit samey, it could of been a brilliant ending but for me it let it down a bit. Cora has killed a man but why? when we unravel why Cora has done this we see her true personality come through. All the characters are written well and feel as though we see what they go through after such an unimaginable event. This book has been turned into a Netflix series so I will be intrigued to give it a try and see what that is like. There are some quite uncomfortable scenes in this book too that I found awkward.
I received an ARC copy of this book for an honest review.
