Thanks to @rachelsrandomresources for my copy and spot on the tour
When Janette answers the door to a potential customer looking to board his dog, she never imagines he has nefarious plans.
But minutes later he’s dead and in her cellar.
Weeks later she realises she’s pregnant.
And so she becomes Mother and the baby Child, and a hidden life begins.
But all secrets come out eventually . .
This book gets pretty dark. There are so many trigger warnings, and it makes for very uncomfortable reading.
The plot starts off as a slow burn, but if you can get through the opening pages, it becomes a gripping and intriguing read.
I wasn’t sure if I ‘liked’ the characters as such, but they really added to the suspense in the plot.
As my first Anita Waller book, it was a strong introduction to her work, and I look forward to more.
