Product description

Review

‘I absolutely loved it and raced through it. Thrilling, unputdownable, a fabulous rollercoaster of a read – I was obsessed by this book.’ B A PARIS, NUMBER ONE BESTSELLER OF BEHIND CLOSED DOORS AND THE BREAKDOWN

"Obsession is a welcome addition to the domestic noir bookshelf. Robson explores marriage, jealousy and lust with brutal clarity, making for a taut thriller full of page-turning suspense."EMMA FLINT, AUTHOR OF LITTLE DEATHS

"A compelling page-turner on the dark underbelly of marriage, friendship & lust. (If you're considering an affair, you might want a rethink)." FIONA CUMMINS, AUTHOR OF RATTLE

‘Very pacy and twisted – a seemingly harmless conversation between husband and wife spins out into a twisted web of lies and deceit with devastating consequences.' COLETTE MCBETH, AUTHOR OF THE LIFE I LEFT BEHIND

‘Amanda Robson has some devastating turns of phrase up her sleeve and she expertly injects menace into the domestic. It was clear from the very first chapter that this was going to a dark and disturbing journey.’ HOLLY SEDDON, AUTHOR OF TRY NOT TO BREATHE

‘A compelling psychosexual thriller, with some very dark undertones. Thoroughly intriguing. Amanda Robson is a new name to look out for in dark and disturbing fiction. High quality domestic noir.’ PAUL FINCH, SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLER

‘Compelling and thoroughly addictive’ KATERINA DIAMOND, SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLER

As soon as I saw the blurb I wanted to read this. A psychological thriller – yes please – definitely my kind of book and now after reading, I have to say it is quite different to many that I’ve encountered recently.

When Carly asks her GP husband Rob one question whilst on a family holiday, it sets off a chain of events that nobody could forsee. The lesson here is don’t ask a question that you don’t want to know the answer to! Each chapter is told by one of the four characters and whilst this sometimes repeats some of the narrative, hearing their version of events in their own voice does give another perspective and a makes it a more personal and, at times, voyeuristic read.

I can’t remember when I last read a book where I disliked the characters so much but then I feel that was the author’s intention. This is not a sugar coated story but more of a delve into the darker side of the human psyche. Carly, I detested from the outset. She had a nice life, children (who she didn’t seem to care for very much) and a loving husband but she still wasn’t happy, picking a fight whenever she could – my nickname for her was Carly the Cow. However, as I read on, I began to realise that none of the others were any great shakes either and actually I couldn’t really get behind any of them. Perhaps Rob, Carly’s husband, was the only one that I felt any remote sympathy for in the beginning but then he began to grate with his religious outpourings and double standards. I am not an atheist but I’m not particularly religious either and religion does feature heavily with a couple of the characters. Surprisingly so really, considering some of their thoughts and behaviour.

A book full of questionable and nasty egotists,the only character a felt remote sympathy for was the poor put upon grandmother who was on beck and call 24/7 when her errant offspring needed a break.
In the end they mostly reap what they sow and in that I suppose is justice

Really enjoyed this book, cleverly written from each persons perspective. Very addictive. Keeps you thinking and once you start it's hard to put down.

Read from cover to cover within 24 hours of arriving on my Kindle.
A disturbing thriller with characters, places and scenarios described with a cinematic detail and flair that will remain with you long past the last page. I look forward to the next book.

An interesting book. Can a woman be so obsessed with another woman, so full of jealousy that she can almost imagine what she feels is happening. She is put in a mental institution because it is believed that she is actually sick. Interesting story to read, because it has its twists and turns but I cannot tell you the end, because then why would you read the book! Recommend you read it
