He instead shadows them and her partner in a crazy sadistic way!The rest is the twist, which makes this book a 5/5 🌟 read and one of my best this year!Find out for yourself,what happened when Alicia spoke?Whats the aftermath? Why she killed and whats the significance of Alcestis!Its a beautifully written thriller, with a karma twist, its unpredictable, edgy and so real life!Shows how much of a pretence life is..

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect story..😍
By AKANSHA on 7 May 2019
After a very long time I've read such a thrilling book.. the story is very direct and captures you in every word. Not a word is wasted as the author wrote the story in simple but captivating words and does not wanders with subplots that usually happens when you read a psychological thriller. While reading I observed that all the pages and words are directed and focused on telling me the story of the protagonist. And every word has a meaning in this book. So do not skim through pages. I loved it. I wish all the psychological thrillers were like this.
Looking forward to the next book by this author.
