Description

Into The Darkest Corner “Check the locks on your doors and windows and surrender to this obsessive thriller.” — Karin Slaughter

When young, pretty Catherine Bailey meets Lee Brightman, she can’t believe her luck. Gorgeous, charismatic and a bit mysterious, Lee seems almost too perfect to be true. But what begins as flattering attention and spontaneous, passionate sex transforms into raging jealousy, and Catherine soon discovers that Lee’s dashing good looks hide a dark, violent nature.

Four years later, Lee is behind bars and Catherine—now Cathy—is trying to build a new life for herself. Trusting no one, she compulsively checks every lock of her apartment and varies her route home each day. Then an attractive new neighbour moves in. Encouraging her to confront her fears, he sparks unexpected hope and the possibility of a normal life. Until the day the phone rings.

Winner of Amazon UK’s Book of the Year Award and shortlisted for the Waverton Good Read Award and the People’s Book Prize, the mesmerizing, skillfully drawn and vividly cinematic Into the Darkest Corner is an ingeniously structured tour de force of suspense that marks the arrival of a major new talent.

    I enjoyed reading this book. I also like how the book shows things happening in different years simultaneously and how the main character changed over time and what caused the change. I could feel her pain and fear and that was good. Nice read and thats why I'm rating it 5 stars. Honestly would have given it a 4.5 but I'm feeling generous lol. Its not a mystery book which is what i tend to gear towards but its a nice thriller that makes you wonder how someone can seem one way (nice) and be a manipulative abuser. Plus, the book was cheap so definitely 5 stars.

    OK, OK, OK...I get it. An abused woman is afraid of her psychotic, abusive boyfriend, and this same nutcase raped her several times over a long period of time four years ago. But does Ms. Haynes have to explain how she checked the locks on her flat five hundred times? Does she have to go over, and over the details of the rough sex, and the related abuse? I was not a real fan of this novel, because of the aforementioned way Haynes presented the story. It went on and on, spinning its wheels and not getting anywhere for the first 450 pages. I guess you could call it suspenseful, for it was that, but I would say repetitive would be a better word.

    A heart breaking look into domestic violence and it's after shocks. Very well written and hard to put down.

    One of those books you'll stay up until 3am to finish and yet it keeps you awake even longer because of the subject matter.
