A chain of terrible decisions one after the other, again and again and again and again...
This book is essentially about Alice, a woman with a husband and 2 sons, making a series of frustratingly dumb decisions and choices. These decisions and choices either build on one another with serious consequences or are revealed abruptly and work against Alice.
The source of drama and suspense all stems from Alice’s poor and naive judgment. Also, the police in her town were rather dismissive and their lack of practical protocols hindered and/or prevented Alice from following through on any intelligent action she tried to take. I found this to be a very unsettling barrier— but not one that could stop me from taking action anyway.
The story kept my interest similar to way we can’t help but monitor/track the details in the news of an idiot burglar that robbed a bank and held hostages with a wooden gun and no mask— we know he’s made the worst possible decisions but we want to see what happens next and how the situation will unfold. That’s how I got through the book and why it wasn’t boring or uninteresting.
With that said, although I don’t regret using a credit on this book, I wouldn’t recommend it outright— but I also wouldn’t prevent anyone from reading/listening to it.
Lastly, the narrator’s Swiss-German, male accent more often than not sounded like a woman from India (I know these are on opposite ends of the accent spectrum but somehow she just does it).

Loved this thriller
This is one of the first thrillers I’ve read that I couldn’t figure out the outcome. Loved the emotions; we’ve all felt what she thought. The imagery of Switzerland made me feel like I was there.
I can’t wait for Louise’s next book.

Excellent reading. A book you don't want to put down. I love Switzerland and all things Swiss so the fact it is set in Switzerland is an added bonus for me. Can't wait for the next one in 2019.
