About this deal

So when her missing cat is rescued by Anna, who works several jobs to support herself, Emily is receptive to Anna’s offer to help. The characters were also thinly drawn, quote two dimensional and certainly not as complex, engaging and interesting as those in her other books.

However, this time, I sided with her completely and still felt so uncertain about Anna and how she acted.

There’s one question that will be forever on my mind after reading the ending chapter, but I quite like the fact that we’ll never know the answer. I have read everything by Susan Elliot Wright and loved all her books, especially The Flight of Cornelia Blackwood. As much as I was nervous about what was to come, it was an amazing feeling – the atmosphere had been perfectly written and I instantly had some terrifying predictions for what could happen to round this story off.

I loved Emily as a character, and it was so saddening to see how Anna’s presence in her life lifted her up and brought her down in equal measure. Their cat, Oscar, has been missing for days and Emily is getting increasingly worried about his whereabouts.Though it doesn't detract from the plot, I found it fascinating to wonder exactly what her motivations were. With her taut writing and immaculate pacing, Susan Elliot Wright has created a dark and sinister tale of toxic family relationships, full of secrets and lies, layered with a perfect example of the smothering isolation felt by so many new mothers. I was so invested in Emily’s life, and even though herself and Simon had built an impressive life together with a nice house and beautiful daughter, it seems there’s still a few things Emily would change, and she’s not at her happiest right now.

I wasn’t mentally prepared for how much I became emotionally invested in these characters and their complex lives! I found this to be a gripping and compelling read and I was intrigued to find out if Emily was a reliable narrator. It was truly excellent to see just how well Emily’s character worked and I was really excited to see how things changed for her throughout the book. I loved getting to know more about Emily and Simon’s relationship and the circumstances in which they first got together.The contract between Anna and Emily is very interesting and introduces some moral questions for the reader to consider. Emma Bamford, author of Deep Water'Dark and sinister, this creepy psychological thriller has it all. This is perfect if you’re looking for a light thriller that won’t tax your mind or your time too much. It was a thrilling read and definitely makes you turn page after page, revealing even more twists and secrets.
