Alicia Berenson's life is seemingly perfect. A famous painter married to an in-demand fashion photographer, she lives in a grand house with big windows overlooking a park in one of London's most desirable areas. One evening her husband Gabriel returns home late from a fashion shoot, and Alicia shoots him five times in the face, and then never speaks another word. Alicia's refusal to talk, or give any kind of explanation, turns a domestic tragedy into something far grander, a mystery that captures the public imagination and casts Alicia into notoriety.

Could. Not. Put. This. Down. Also: points for actually surprising me with the twist, which is hard to do given how many books of this type I read.

I love listening to books only in the car and feel privy as if its a special performance just for me. The readers of this were exceptional. Not my usual choice of topics but I loved this book.

just finished this book. it is very well written and is able to hold
your interest until the ending. the author did a very good job making
reading and following the plot of the book well. it is a very good
psychological mystery builds the suspense and holds you until
the ending.

I found this slow and figured out what was happening 2/3 of the way thru. Only OK as far as I'm concerned.

This book literally gave me chills! I ripped through it so quickly and was so taken aback at the end. Wow!

I did not like this book. Yes it keeps you guessing however I found none of the characters were fleshed out nor could I develop any empathy for any of them. Perhaps the superficial was what the author was aiming for. When I finished the book I felt I had wasted my time. I kept waiting for something more. It's not the first best seller that I couldn't connect with.

If you want a book that keeps you guessing this is the one for you. You won`t be able to put it down. Which narrator is telling the truth?? Read this book to find out.
