Kathryn and David are the ideal couple. But unseen by their envious or admiring friends, splinters are beginning to form. David suspects one of their two children is not his own and Kathryn struggles to iron out family confrontations to maintain the calm of their lives together. But slowly things start to slip from her control. David's mood swings become more irrational and violent.
His drive to dominate and order the world he's created intensifies to the point of locking the playroom door and pocketing the key a move that signals the final route into the chaos that will disrupt their perfect world.

Very good story. Great narrator. Psychological story (not really "thriller") about how we don't necessarily know our neighbors or people we might call friends for that reason even though me might associate with them, go to their houses, out to lunch with them, etc. Also how we can "choose" to ignore or just fail to see signs that are right in front of us. Or maybe the signs aren't there to be seen. Perhaps the people hid them too well for us to see. Really interesting story. I recommend it. Will keep you thinking after the story has ended.

Probably not because of the story content. It was very sad
I thought it was a well written story
Rula is very good at all the characters.
It made me cry because of the child in it.
This book is not for everyone as it deals with a very disturbing subject matter. Any cruelty of any form on another human being especially a child is so sad and, even though it should be told, I found myself gripped with fear.
I guess I just didn't get this book. The plot was so strange and I could not bond with any of it or the charecters. Rula Lenska is a good narrator though.
