The story starts with 5 main characters who are sitting in a hospital waiting room to find out if Matt has survived. The only thing is that every one of them wishes him dead! I actually quite naively couldn't understand why a group of people who hate someone so much and didn't think it was justified, until about 30% in, Yes at that point I HATED that man and it only got worse! Everything that you imagine happened but it was 100 times worse than you first thought!
Matt is a very sick, disturbed individual, sadistic in nature who poisoned and ruined everyone around him, he wove a web of pain and suffering which then rippled out to affect friends and family around them. Think NASTY and times it by a billion!
He managed to get his wife Ellen sectioned for 6 months to take over her finances and even while she was in a secure clinic his evil sadistic behaviour knew no bounds! His sister has always been scared of him and when he finds she is happily settled down he does the unthinkable! Even at this point I thought it couldn't possibly get worse BUT by hell it did!
When Ellen finally got out of the clinic and managed to inform everyone around her of what was happening I was cheering and commending her!Read more ›
The story was a multi faceted one and surrounded the life of Matt and those who were unlucky enough to know him, marry him, work with him and be related to him. Matt is the epitome of type of man who your mothers hope you will never meet; gorgeous, charming and completely deranged. He is abusive and despises women although he is happy to make them his slaves or to enjoy the wealth they have amassed.
I enjoyed the four threads to this story with the four people he has wronged, debased, cheated and affected all trying to escape his clutches. It’s not long before they realise that the only option available to them, to rid him from their lives permanently, is.... to murder Matt.
There were some downsides to the story aside from the dark theme. I took the abuse and darkness at face value, it was no different to what is depicted in film scenes and I agree with another reviewer, the scenes were not included for titillation. The author handles them carefully and reasonably tastefully but at the same time the writing was poorly executed on occasion.
I found that the story jumped around a lot as scenes were skipped and time frames were glossed over. Attention to detail was lacking throughout the story as names were quoted incorrectly and events omitted or forgotten about. I would have expected these points to have been addressed at the Beta stage, assuming there was one.Read more ›
This book starts at a hospital with Matt in critical condition and leads us from the past up to this current point via interweaving the lives of Ellen, Dean, Veronique and Nico via their pov, all who are connected via the charismatic Matt, ex racing driver and currently wealthy playboy. This cunning, handsome and successful man is the devil in disguise whom you learn more about throughout the book. The two women in this book showed such strength and fortitude I was in awe of them and thought their tragedies were handled well.
This is a darkly disturbing read, but also shows what truly happens in reality when obsession overwhelms a person, their drive knows no limits or boundaries and that looks can truly be deceiving. The ending was fitting and left you with a little bit of uncertainty, thinking can all events ever be fully forgotten?
This was one intense story. Its not for the fainthearted though, let me say, there is abuse in this book, sexual warped perverted abuse that some readers may find hard to stomach, but, IT IS vital to the story. Its not in there for titivation as far as I can see.
I really don't want to enlighten you about anything because I don't want to give any more away than what's in the blurb that the author has written already.
There is a huge suspense in this that will keep you interested. Love story, passion, intrigue. Betrayal, now that is a cruel thing that leads to who knows where!!!
Very cleverly written and I rate it 3.5
This is the authors 3rd book and if you read her bio, she says to keep her mind fresh she writes several books at once.
There is a strong element of her becoming known in this field of work I think as she writes, she surely knows how to spin a story!
I would like to thank the author Viceca Benoir for this book, and the blog tour/review section I was involved with.
*This is MY honest review/opinion on this book which reflects on no one but myself*
