At a dinner in honor of Dr. Patterson, Carlo Vucci introduces him to his alluring wife Christine. Simon is entranced by her beauty.
Three weeks later, Christine shows up at the hospital, complaining of terrible headaches. Dr. Patterson offers to help her, but Christine did not come to see him just because of her headaches. A series of shocking events follow that turn Dr. Patterson’s life into a nightmare. Among other things, he finds himself in court being accused of murder in the first degree …
I was hooked from the very first page and was unable to put it down, except from when I was forced to. This novel was full of twists and turns throughout and I never felt like I knew what was going to happen next. The plot is well though out and easy to follow most of the time.
However for me there was to many characters present within this novel. I found myself confused at time to what was going on as each chapter seemed to jump from one character to the next. However on a positive note, all these characters added a lot of suspense to the novel as I never knew what was going to happen next.
Overall a good read that I would recommend to anyone who enjoys a fast-paced suspense filled read.
I received a copy of this book for free and all opinions expressed are my own through reading them.
