The doctors called it aphantasia, but Cressida called it purgatory: slow, torturous emptiness…

It has been 3,684 days since the accident and as many nights since Cressida Dunhill last dreamed. Three years ago she moved to the sleepy coastal town of Silverside, Oregon to escape her bloody past, but now she’s drowning in its tedium. A psychologist specializing in dream analys

Cressida is the unlikeable female protagonist we all need in our lives. She's ruthlessly intelligent, excruciatingly logical, and so, so screwed up. The more you get to know her, the more afraid of her you will be. Widdicks creates a world both atmospheric and chilling, the perfect backdrop to Cressida's adventures in psychological mischief, that you're sucked in from page one. A twisted tale of love lost and obsession gained, A Mutual Addiction will appeal to fans of Mary Kubica and Karin Slaug ...more

It's a tiring game, caring what others think. Widdick's "A Mutual Addiction" gives us an astonishing, wicked look at a woman who flips the bird to that notion. Cressida is ruthless to her core, and it is utterly exhilarating watching her pursue the thing she wants most -- to be in someone else's skin -- with such demented focus and abandon. It's next to impossible to NOT want her to succeed. Get ready to check your moral compass at the door for a few hours, and then prepare to be terrified of wh ...more

Vivid and compelling, A Mutual Addiction grabs ahold from its first moments and doesn’t let go until long after it’s been put down. This is a great example of what a psychological thriller can be. Cressida is fascinating, intelligent, even sympathetic, all while being increasingly scary and completely unhinged. I promise, you will have a hard time getting her out of your head. This book did not disappoint.

Beautifully written with complicated, engaging characters and a fantastic twist. This is not a story about an innocent woman having lots of bad things happen to her that are out of her control. This is the good dirty stuff. Great read.

Wow! The woman knows no bounds!
I hope I never have a Cressida in my life.

This was a dud for me. I was actually a bit pissed off after reading it for wasting my time. I didn't find it remotely 'thrilling' and the protagonist was not fully realized for me; she was just a cut-out with no depth. I felt the story would have improved with a lot more background story. More "present" and "past" chapters. With psychological suspense, I want to get a glimpse inside the main character's messy mind. The story itself was not subtle and was dully presented. I never saw either woma ...more
