A wife caught fast in an obsessive relationship, a controlling husband with a scheming mistress, children in the mix. A striving young customs investigator who stumbles upon the seemingly separate strands of stories intertwined; shipping, docks, crimes past, crimes planned, the lure of other lifestyles and the trappings of a penthouse - all interwoven in a well crafted web. As the characters' flaws and motivations were steadily revealed, mixed feelings of pity, outrage, and edge of the seat concern, were stirred - I cared what the outcome was, wanted justice to prevail, and was left thinking about the ending and its implications. Like an old fashioned fairy tale before they became sanitised, you knew to boo the villains, hope for the victims and cheer the heroes, but as the complexities and pitfalls of real life relationships, jealousy and foolishness are laid bare, flaws are understood and accepted - and sometimes seemingly forgiven when circumstances change.( Hansel and Gretel, their dad and step-mum spring to mind). The ever emerging connections, and the need to know what happens next kept the pages of Until Death turning. The twist at the end was both satisfying and disturbing. What more could you want from a thriller?
At first we can't believe the wife trapped by a bullying husband, so I didn't like her, but the plot twists on in devastating fashion until we are forced to really sympathize as her life goes up the Swanee!
I loved Georgie, daughter of a criminally bent family, determined to be on the straight and narrow and working for customs and excise, as her family couldn't take her working for the police.
I would like more of Georgie, I hope Knight gives her another outing.
All in all a great read, MORE PLEASE!
This is the first book I have read by Ali Knight. But I think it is safe to say it will not be the last.
A gripping tale of Marital abuse, and one womans struggle to come out the other end. With a fantastic story line.
I'm just annoyed with myself that it took me a while to get around to reading it, because once i had started it I really did enjoy it...
The abused wife Kelly is stuck in a relationship that she just wants out of. But there just seems no way out. Her husband will not let her have a divorce, and has threatened to take the children away from her. She is left in their apartment daily some days with the doors locked, and is constantly recorded on one of the many video cameras her husband has installed in the house so he can see what she is up to constantly. She has 2 Children a Daughter she had before she met Christos and a son which they adopted together. Kelly also has a past which could get her into something she doesn't want to be involved with.
I hated Christos right from the beginning of this book, he's a man who likes to take charge and be in charge of everything. Including his wife. He has a mistress and dispite this still won't let his wife go. And as for Sylvie his mistress, well I She was just a first class cow.
I liked the idea that one of the main characters was a female customs officer and not the normal police detective.
you find yourself asking a lot of questions throughout this book, and mainly how you would cope in this situation. What would you do? It is so easy to think that you would just walk away and not put up with it. But as this story shows things are not always that easy or that straight forward.
Make you grateful you are happily married..
I received this book from the publishers after speaking with Becca Mundy @BeccaCMundyand on Twitter. And I am really grateful for being given the chance to read and review it. It was definitely the sort of book I enjoy reading.
I have also added Ali Knights other books to my must buy them list. And look forward to reading them one day.
