A nail-biting suspense it was not

Belle, our protagonist, is home alone convalescing and with her husband away, Georgia, a nurse, was employed to care for her; however, from their very first meeting, it’s patently obvious there’s something fundamentally wrong with Georgia.

What follows seemed simple while being a tad unconvincing but regardless of my complete ambivalence, it’s clear the author knows how to tell a story. I only wish it hadn’t been quite so...what’s the word?...boring.

The shocking car accident had left writer Belle Hammer confined to a wheelchair as her shattered knee healed, as well as the damage to her eye which was still painful. Her husband Guy needed to head to New Zealand for work which would leave Belle unable to manage on her own, so he organized for a live in caregiver to stay with Belle until he returned. Belle also had her next door neighbour, Arthur Howell’s phone number if she needed help, but she was wary of him.

When Lea, the caregiver, arrived

Setting: near Perth, Western Australia. Published author Belle Hammer lives in an isolated house in the forests beyond Perth. She has few neighbours, one of whom - Arthur Howell - gives her the creeps although her husband Guy gets on well with him. When Guy at last gets his big break in films, he has to fly to New Zealand for filming, leaving Belle on her own. Normally, this would be okay but Belle is in a wheelchair, recovering from a road traffic accident which left her with a shattered kneeca ...more

2.5 stars. I can't believe all the five star reviews. Maybe I have read too many thrillers but this was unbelievably predictable. Apart from knowing how the story would pan out, it was kind of suspenseful. And I did finish it just to see if and how anyone would be killed. Again - predictable. This is my least favourite of Anna Willett's books so far and possibly my last. ...more

Another gripping thriller from Anna Willets. The tension is unrelenting. Right from the beginning, there are hints that all in not going to go well, just a feeling of impending doom hidden in the first chapter. After that it is a maelstrom of misfortune, bad timing and plain out evil.

There are many threads in this novel, and each time it seems that you have it all worked out there is another bump in the road and more hidden secrets are hinted at and more guilt is exposed.
From the very beginning

You may be paranoid, but it’s possible that there really is someone out to get you. Anna Willett spins out a tale so filled with tension and suspense that the reader is never sure when to take a breath. Belle, an author who is recovering from a serious car accident that has confined her to a wheelchair, is home alone in her secluded residence in Australia. Her husband, Guy, just left for an extended trip to appear in a film being shot in New Zealand. But there’s nothing to worry about, because G ...more

This was a great read from Anna Willett. Filled with tension from the off, I found myself wanting to shout at the unfortunate woman in the wheelchair at various times - but of course to no avail.

This is a twisty, tense tale that deserves more than 5 starts - don't miss it!!!!!

Good read, but predictable

I enjoyed the way the author built up slowly to the main plot point in this novel, however from the beginning it was not difficult to guess the direction the story was going to take.

It was challenging to understand the motivations of some characters, and their inclusion in the plot felt forced at times.

The final couple of chapters did not feel completely necessary and felt stretched out.

It was an interesting read and was entertaining enough that it was difficult to pu

A great suspense/thriller which starts fast and strong. The plot seemed so realistic it was definitely creepsville.
Definitely would read more from this author.

Willett is up to her usual tricks in this creepy suspenseful title about a woman imprisioned in her own home. The suspense gradually ratchets up to an explosive finale. Hard to put down, with a nice little reveal that will surprise and please the reader.

Another great one by Anna Willett. Almost finished it in one sitting, hard to put down. Very suspenseful, riveting. I’ve read almost all her books now and have never been disappointed.
