This was a very twisty- turny book but the end didn‘t go anywhere/kind of just fizzled out 🤔

Read for reading prompts.

4/5

This started slow but ended well, really delving into the psychology of all of the women in Aiden‘s orbit and the effect of victimization & misogyny. Better than average thriller imho.

Still have yet to find my first real 5-star read of the year but this was a solid 4.

All I can say is INTENSE! Didn‘t, wouldn‘t, couldn‘t put the book down. From the perspective of three women in a serial killer‘s life. Wow! 🤯 My anxiety was super high. I need to read something more mellow for the next round after this one 😅

The story of a deeply disturbed man told from the point of view of three women in his life: a woman who has a crush on him, his teenage daughter, and the woman he has kidnapped and living in a shed behind his house. A real thriller.

I can get lost in any Stephen King dark-fantasy novel and not only believe the story could happen, but that it is. Clemence Michallon‘s crime novel, not so much.

Starting off the new year with a bang of a read!

Aidan Thomas is a seemingly ordinary man but instead has a chilling double life. This is a PSYCHOLOGICAL THRILLER about a serial killer told through the voices of those closest to him - his 13yr old daughter, his girlfriend, and the victim he‘s spared. What a suspenseful debut for this author!

I could relate to main character and wanted her to survive. Characters were overall realistic.

This was captivating read, I was so intrigued and couldn't stop reading. I wanted to see what was going to happen next.

I loved this book so much, pleasurable read!

This is not a typical thriller and it is told in a unique way, through many POV, but primarily from a woman (Rachel) who has been held by a serial killer for more than five years. I found it compelling and read through it quickly, waiting impatiently for Rachel to find the right moment to make her move. I would have liked to know a little more about the killer's motivation...but maybe that is the point of the book, it is about the victims. 4/5

So far I've been really lucky with books for #Scarathlon. This one is about a woman who's been kidnapped by a serial killer but instead of killing her he decides to keep her in his shed. Things get messy when he has to move house.

This was fantastic. I couldn‘t turn the pages fast enough. There was so much at stake for all three POVs: a serial killer‘s 13 year old daughter, the woman he has kept chained up for five years, and his next target who has fallen for him. The last time I felt this same urgency was when I read Will Dean‘s brilliant The Last Thing to Burn. So many times, I screamed at these women to Run! or Stop! I barely exhaled for the last 1/4 of the story.

TheLudicReader The Last Thing to Burn was un-put-down-able, so I guess I am moving this one up my tbr list. 7mo

This is a compelling thriller told from three viewpoints. A victim, a family member, and a potential love interest narrate their relationships with a violent criminal. Although the three narrators sometimes made frustrating choices, they were not unbelievable choices. If you are sensitive to reading about murder or violence this book may not be for you.

I liked what this book was about. I liked the lyricalness. But also, this was supposed to be a thriller. It felt more like a really long monolog or biography. If I went into this book thinking that, I might have liked it more. I felt as tho I was always waiting for nothing to ever really happen.. 2/5

I liked this one more than I expected to. It toggles between 3 points of view…his daughter, his prisoner and the bartender who has a huge crush on him…and is also targeted to be his next victim. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

This a good read if your willful-suspension-of-disbelief mode is on. I‘m afraid all the coincidences, close calls, and logical inconsistencies had me rolling my eyes a lot. The second person narrative for the main character also wore me out. The situation just never felt particularly dangerous to me and it lacked the weighty tension that a serial killer ought to inspire. But I‘m sure lots of people will just eat it up.

Couldn‘t put this one down! A serial killer kidnaps a woman, and keeps her chained up in a shed on his property. The three narrators are the woman, the man‘s daughter, and a woman who falls for him. You know as you‘re reading that these three women have to come together at some point, you just don‘t know when. It‘s a gripper (with a few parts that will be hard for women to read.)

One last book finished in July and it was a LOT. Suspenseful, yes, but so much more than that. Here's a story about a terrible man that ends up being about three women and the resiliency of women.

This book was so, so bad. The only reason I gave it a “so-so” instead of a “pan” was because the idea of the book was cool and the three characters POVs was interesting, but I hated all of the characters. I love a good thriller and was pumped to read this but just found it so cringey 😬

For so long I‘ve loved “Room” by Emma Donoghue…and I‘m happy to say this had similar vibes without being a copycat. A super quick read that kept me listening while I gardened. Readers hear multiple women‘s perspectives of Aiden. Is he the friendly neighbor who stops by the bar after work, the tortured father whose wife died, or the man with dark secrets?

Thanks to #netgalley for the ARC in exchange for a fair and honest review. One of my best thriller reads for 2023 so far! This was everything I love in a thriller dark, sinister, disturbing characters I was hooked! This was a well paced thriller that had me so wrapped up in it it was all I could think about when I wasn't reading it. To describe it as an addictive psychological thriller read is simply not enough but its all I have. ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

I started this book today and finished it today. I love stories about serial killers and this one had several different perspectives. The daughter, love interest, and current hostage for 5 years. I liked that the hostage is the main character and her perspective is written in second person which I don‘t see often. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Oh boy this one is TENSE.

You feel so so much for “Rachel”. I cheered for her triumphs.

What I appreciated about this one was how it showed the side of the other woman too. How she feels being the one that didn‘t know and the emotions that follow.

5⭐
There is a lot that could potentially turn someone off from this book…from the second-person POV, almost mechanical writing, to the possible believability issues. Seriously, many readers didn‘t love this but honestly, for me, and maybe the fantastic audio narration helped with this, these elements barely put a damper on my satisfaction. I was hooked and couldn‘t stop listening…so if you‘re thinking about this book, go with the audio.

I thought this was really good. I wanted to keep reading when I already was and when I wasn‘t, I wanted to get back to the book. It sounds implausible from my description, but it seems more believable when reading. Viewpoints include Rachel, Cecilia, and Emily the bartender. Rachel needs to figure out when and/or if she should say anything and/or run. Everything she does is to give herself the best chance of survival.

I think readers are either going to like this book or hate it. It's very dark. It's very disturbing. It's scary in that you never really know the people in your town. I enjoyed a lot but didn't love it due to the dark material.

Aidan Thomas is someone everyone loves when they see him. He is a family man and a dad. Seems perfect, except he has a dark secret. He is a serial killer that has murdered women ⬇️

Monica5 (not giving anything away, that's in the synopsis of the book). His life gets turned upside down when his wife dies. He and his child must move out of their house, the only problem is who he has hidden away in the shed behind his house.

'Rachel' was kidnapped 5 years ago by Aidan. For some reason, he has kept her alive. Now that they have to move will he keep her alive?

As I said, this is a disturbing book. I enjoyed the character development of 'Rachel'. How she changes throughout the book. That was about the only character development I noticed. Everyone else pretty much stayed the same.

Beware that there are trigger warnings: kidnapping, abuse (emotional, physical, and sexual), rape and murder.

Tentative Publication Date: June 20, 2023

Thanks to Netgalley and Knopf for the E-ARC. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

🙂 Happy Reading 🙃

Aiden Thomas has a dark secret which he is hiding from his 13 year old daughter, Cecilia. He has Rachel imprisoned in the backyard shed. He is a kidnapper and serial killer. When Aiden's wife dies, they have to move after Rachel has been held for five years in the shed.

EadieB When Emily, a local restaurant owner develops a crush on the handsome widower, she finds herself drawn into Rachel and Cecilia's orbit dangerously coming close to discovering Aiden's secret. This book explores the psychological impact of Aiden's crimes on the women in his life and the strength to fight back. This book is an astute study of trauma, survival and the dynamic of power. 11mo
EadieB If you like suspense with your mysteries, then you will love this book. I'm hoping Clemence writes another book soon. 11mo

Aidan Thomas is an upstanding man, a hard worker, a good neighbor, always ready to help. So say the people in his small hometown. Rachel, Cecilia, and Emily, the three females in his life, would have a different story to tell. That is if they were able to get away from the psychological hold, this man has on them. This book exposes the madness of a serial killer as told by the women who are captivated by him. Can they escape before it‘s too late?
