About this deal

His erratic, controlling and sometimes frightening behaviour means that Catherine is increasingly isolated. It also includes the story four years after, showing the damage done to Cathy which has left her isolated, suffering from OCD and post traumatic stress. I have to thank the lovely Keertana for putting Into the Darkest Corner on my radar because I thoroughly enjoyed the thrilling ride!

From its uncompromising prologue – a young woman being bludgeoned to death in a ditch – Haynes’s powerful account of domestic violence is disquieting, yet unsensationalist.A book that you can't put down, that has you reading at all hours and one in which you deceive yourself with "just one more chapter" Another of my personal indicators of a good book is some twists and turns that you didn't see coming, this book fits all of my criteria. She may have to check a lock six times but it’s what helps her push through, to make it from one moment to the next, even if those moments turn into hours, and she has to repeat the process three or four times to help her feel truly safe. you follow her journey over the next months as Lee becomes more and more controlling of her life untill she is suffocated and beaten down. Os primeiros capítulos são bem cansativos, até aprendermos todo a rotina de Cathy antes de sair de casa, as verificações te incomodam na boca do estômago. However, the pacing is simply too slow, and that’s troubling because this is supposed to be a thriller.

While Cathy went through a complete nightmare, the chapters in the present fill you with hope that she can be happy once again. It’s dark, chilling and very disturbing; it was sickening at times but still an exciting novel to read. Actually, I liked it so much that I chose it to publish under my imprint (Slaughterhouse) in Holland.A very impressive first novel; it tells the story of Catherine who starts off as a lively, fun loving party girl until she meets Lee. It can be all to easy to pass judgement on victims who stay in violent relationships but for a lot of victims of violence in the home, there is no easy escape from it. The plot of the book isn't all that original, it was the way the story unfolded that made it stand out for me.
