What a stunning debut novel by B. A. Paris that grips you with such disturbing intensity and pulls you right in. The characters are very real and you've met some controlling characters in your life but it's doubtful you've ever run into one of the magnitude of the antagonist. There is no atmospheric fluff in the just under 300 pages of the novel and I challenge you to try and sleep before you find out what happens and you have to read to the very last page to find out.
Utterly brilliant and I doubt the author can do a follow-up novel this engaging.

Excellent finish! Recommended for readers who think this sentence is much too long and descriptive.

I agree with a lot of the other comments. I felt anxious the whole time I read this book, but had to finish it because it HAD to finish better... the abuse, the animal cruelty, the prospect of abuse towards the disabled. This book sucked. Gave me nightmares.

There is enough animal abuse in the real world that it takes a real loser to decide to make some up. Horrible author and book.

While I understand there are relationships in the real world parallel to this story, I could NOT continue. For anyone who has triggers around abuse of innocence and animals, PICK A DIFFERENT BOOK.

This story of abuse about the supposedly 'perfect couple', but people don't know what happens when no one is looking. However predictable, the book is exciting and to me resembles 'The Girl on the Train' a lot. I liked it but it isn't thought-provoking.
