Don’t Look Back
An air of calm and happiness quickly transform into fear, loathing and menace as the reader gets caught up in the action. We question what we see. We try to disentangle the truth from the lies. We try to envisage the ending.
Appearances can be deceptive. Can we believe what our eyes tell us?
The novel is about manipulation and control. How far would someone go to uncover or to hide the truth?
We all need good friends. “Good friends will be there, no matter how much time has passed.” How much do our good friends really know us? Are we so ‘me’ focused that we miss who they are?
The novel has several different time frames and viewpoints, alternating between the first and third person. It is not confusing as each section is headed for person and time frame. The reader quickly gets caught up in the action and mood. We ask questions as snippets are revealed bit by bit.
I really enjoyed Now You See Her. It was a compulsive read that had more than a hint of menace. Psychological torture leaves no visible bruises but deep mental scars.
Don’t forget to look behind you. You never know who is there. Read this with the light on and the doors firmly shut.
