When Martin Trent rings home to announce his return from an assignment as a tour guide in Venice, Susan is filled with fear, a fear based on what has happened before, and her dread of further violence. Why does Susan put up with Martin's treatment? Though neighbours suspect what is going on, Susan covers her bruises with make-up and pretends that nothing is wrong and, despite everything, she loves Martin. But what is the truth about the relationship between Susan and Martin?
If you could sum up Cause for Concern in three words, what would they be?
Insightful. Thoughtful. Chilling.
What other book might you compare Cause for Concern to, and why?
Ruth Rendell's 'Harm Done.' The characters are believable and the storyline easy to grasp and yet captivates and entertains. The observations of human emotions and especially power imbalances are insightful. Unashamedly goodreads without any pretentious flummery.
Which character – as performed by Sheila Mitchell – was your favourite?
Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
Sad but thought provoking.
Any additional comments?
This book started my now almost complete Margaret Yorke collection.
