I saw this book advertised in a Sunday supplement with the Daily Express. What a fantastic book! At first I didn't quite understand how it was written but Tamar Cohen brilliantly wrote it as if the 'mistress' was talking to her ex lover. For a first novel it is brilliantly written. It is gripping from start to finish and has you wondering what will the 'mistress' do next!!! Can't wait for another book by this fantastic author!
