Private Investigator Jim Bean is a straightforward, to-the-point man. When his latest client, Sophie Evers, asks him to find her brother Daniel, Jim has no idea how complicated his life is about to become.
Daniel is not Sophie's brother. He is her most coveted prey. Clinging to the belief that they belong together, Sophie kills Daniel's real sister to manipulate Jim into flushing Daniel out of hiding. She will create the "perfect life" for the only man she's ever loved, no matter how many people she must kill along the way.
When Jim discovers the truth about Sophie, he's driven to set things right before her delusional plan claims even more souls.
The characters in this book are not perfect, even flawed but the way Allen depicts them makes you love them never the less. The story fast and paced but never at one point really boring or make you loose attention. Allen even manages to step away from the well-known tracks of psychological thrillers and creates her own view on the genre.
Only flaw, to me, is (spoiler alert!) the ending. It’s to abrupt and could have been a bit more developed to me. That’s why the 4 stars.
