Ik las eigenlijk van deze schrijfster het boek: De aanklacht. Maar omdat dit niet voorkomt in de databank heb ik deze beschrijving maar even gepikt.
De aanklacht gaat over een structureel door haar (voor de buitenwereld uitermate charmant overkomende) echtgenoot mishandelde vrouw.
hij mishandelt haar niet alleen geestelijk en lichamelijk, maar isoleert haar ook volledig van haar familie en vrienden. Hij dreigt met moord van niet alleen haar zelf, maar ook van haar familie als zij dreigt weg te lop

This was a fun, enjoyable, fast read. I’m not sure why it has several bad reviews. Yes, it was an improbable scenario but it was fun. The writing was descriptive and the author did a good job of weaving the characters thoughts into the story line. Couldn't put it down.

Diane was a very bright police officer. It should have been obvious to her who had set her up. It was obvious to this reader. However, the author kept the reader guessing as to whether Gail’s friends could be trusted and whether Re

What a frustrating book. It was an ok story, but the premise was not believable...that these two cellmates would escape together after knowing each other for a nanosecond and then try to stick together on the run. Gail's storyline was weird - she has been in prison for 18 years, yet has this group of people waiting to help her escape, yet they have never contacted her in 18 years?! And, someone from her network was obviously ratting them out, but the Author never followed up on that storyline... ...more

It took me just over a month to finally finish this book. Needless to say, I didn't really like it. I should've quit reading after the first few chapters, but for some reason I just kept reading... slowly, but I kept at it. I guess it was because, on the cover of the book someone named Tess Gerritsen said "Will blow you away". Hmph. I wasn't blown away at all!

A couple chapters in, the book takes a sudden turn. Totally unexpected and not very believable, in my opinion.

I wouldn't recommend this b

nice premise. the author seemed to feel she had to hammer some points repeatedly. there were a lot of unanswered questions at the end of the story. but it's an easy read; you can pick it up and put it down.

Author must be in la la land cause this book dosnt happen in the real world. I felt that is was a little far fetched. I liked the idea the book was heading in the beginning then it took a turn than ruined the whole thing. Id try another of this author to see if I like it better.
