A taut, well-written thriller, but this novel is more than that. It is also both a textured examination of the lies people tell to those they love and a reminder that it is never easy to escape the traumas of a troubled childhood ... The pace is crisp, the surprises keep coming, and there are two big ones that readers are unlikely to see coming.
Compulsively readable ... does a terrific job of warning against the assumption that you know a person and their motives just because you’re comfortable in a situation ... While I did guess some of the plot twists, others, including that ending, completely caught me off guard. I really enjoyed how Greene built characters who were relatable despite occasionally being (and even then sometimes at their most) unhinged. This was a page-turner of a domestic thriller that fans of the genre will absolutely want to devour.
Greene leads readers (and his protagonists) down some very twisty avenues of reasoning that abruptly end ... The steadily shocking tone could be more varied, but this stands as an absorbing mystery about who is predator and who is prey.
