From the first few pages, I found myself drawn into this story. The book is filled with atmospheric elements and intriguing quotes from other books and mythology. However, the story became darker as it progressed, and while I originally felt empathy for Mariana, and thought of her as my favorite character, my feelings started to change as time went on. I think that can often happen in a psychological thriller when you don't know who to trust.

The characterization was well done as the gradual unraveling of the people's lives was captivating. one intriguing aspect was the brief appearance of Theo from the previous book, The Silent Patient, by the same author.

While I thought I had it all figured out, I was definitely wrong; however, the book was neatly wrapped up by the end.

I enjoyed this book and I recommend it to those who like a good, twisty plot.
