Synopsis: 

One blind date later, Karl notices subtle changes in his sister’s personality; she is no longer the effusive social personality. Instead she is accusing him of taking a perverse interest in her sex life and attacking their own mother. With her fluctuating mental state, he is convinced that the her date from that night is responsible. But his assumption is far sinister from a simple date gone wrong. 

Review: 

I didn’t assume anything sinisterafter reading the description that was provided. But the true horrific detailing that has been presented takes this book beyond the usual psychological thriller fanfare. A brilliant rendition to a disturbing plot that is definitely going to grip you till the very end. This is one of those books where the plot makes a more impact than the characters, though I would recommend the characterisation of the secondary character Dawn as more pivotal than that of Karl. 

There are few errors in the way the book has been written. So I am definitely recommending a thorough proofreading of the book. Other than that, I absolutely loved the storyline, the title and the cover image. 

My opinion: A definite recommendation for all those who are looking for a thriller beyond the usual serial killers. 

My rating: 3.5 out of 5
