"..plotting and pace of the novel were both first class.."
Following the tragic death of her husband and unborn child, Charley Belington sells the family home and tries to start her life over. On moving into a new flat, she is befriended by her landlady, Ella who seems like the perfect friend and confidante.
Unknown to Charley, Ella is fighting her own dark and dirty demons, as the fallout from a horrific childhood causes her unspeakable obsessions to drive her insane.
As Ellla's mind splinters, her increasingly bizarre behaviour makes Charley uneasy. Every step Charley takes to distance herself from Ella backfires, as Ella's obsessions become more and more intense.
