This riveting psychological thriller was unputdownable. It was completely engrossing and terrifying. At first I was reminded of The Great Gatsby. This book was full of glitz and glamor, narcissistic & self-centered characters, and colorful party scenes. I didn’t like any of the characters. They were all pretty awful, yet I couldn’t stop reading. Initially, Louise’s fascination with Lavinia reminded me of Nick’s attraction to Jay Gatsby, but it quickly turned much darker. This deeply disturbing psychological thriller was vivid and clever. An excellent debut novel. I look forward to reading more by this author.
