I thought Into The Darkest Places was brilliant.
I love the way the novel is structured, constantly moving back and forth in time from the present with Cathy trying to rebuild her fragile life and the past showing how her relationship with too-good-to-be-true Lee turned sour. The works really well, gradually unfolding events.
I liked the characters, they were all very real and sympathetic, even Lee. I think Cathy’s OCD is explored with great sympathy. This is the second book I’ve read in the past few days where a primary character has OCD (the other one was The Betrayals). Lee gave me chills, he’s so cold, calculating and charming.
Cathy in 2003/4 is a carefree party loving girl, plenty of friends and plenty of one night stands. Confident, outgoing and living life to the fullest. Cathy in 2007/8 lives in constant fear. Suffering from OCD and PTS Cathy's day begins early for her to complete her rituals. Check the Windows, check the door locks, check the curtains are covering the right amount of panes. Check everything 8 times, then recheck again. Don't take the same route to work or back home. She knows the Windows are locked and doors but what if she didn't check right, check again.
The story moves between the two time periods, cleverly written as the introduction of a new man in each time zone changes Cathy's life in both. Lee has a brilliant physic, very attentive and very controlling, but like a lot of violent men/women they are charming to the outside world. The victim pays the price behind closed doors.
In 2007/8 Cathy meets Stuart, a doctor that has moved in the flat above her. Stuart understands Cathy, to a degree and with his help seeks the doctor that can help her.
When Lee is released Cathy knows she won't be safe.
The author has put a tremendous amount of research into this condition and her real life work in the police shows. I really liked how the time periods were linked as one Cathy grew weak the other began to take control back. I thought the reaction of Cathy's friends was written well, the betrayal and ultimately the strength of friendship. There are some sexual scenes in this book but due to the nature of the story they are warranted.
I very much enjoyed this book a perfect thriller from a talented writer.
