Until Death 4/5
Marriage is a prison for Kelly. Her controlling and manipulative husband Christos videos her in the house, has her followed and tracks her every move. She may be desperate to leave, but she's not stupid. If she runs, he'll make sure she never sees her children again. Christos has a mistress, Sylvie, keen to pander to his every whim and even keener to step into Kelly's shoes, should she ever vacate them. Kelly thinks it's stalemate for their twisted threesome, but one of Christos's container ships is about to dock in London with a secret cargo that will change all their lives forever. If Kelly is to escape, it will be in a way she never imagined, and people will" get hurt .
This is the first book I have read by Ali Knight. But I think it is safe to say it will not be the last.
A gripping tale of Marital abuse, and one womans struggle to come out the other end. With a fantastic story line.
I'm just annoyed with myself that it took me a while to get around to reading it, because once i had started it I really did enjoy it...
The abused wife Kelly is stuck in a relationship that she just wants out of. But there just seems no way out. Her husband will not let her have a divorce, and has threatened to take the children away from her. She is left in their apartment daily some days with the doors locked, and is constantly recorded on one of the many video cameras her husband has installed in the house so he can see what she is up to constantly. She has 2 Children a Daughter she had before she met Christos and a son which they adopted together. Kelly also has a past which could get her into something she doesn't want to be involved with.
I hated Christos right from the beginning of this book, he's a man who likes to take charge and be in charge of everything. Including his wife. He has a mistress and dispite this still won't let his wife go. And as for Sylvie his mistress, well I She was just a first class cow.
I liked the idea that one of the main characters was a female customs officer and not the normal police detective.
you find yourself asking a lot of questions throughout this book, and mainly how you would cope in this situation. What would you do? It is so easy to think that you would just walk away and not put up with it. But as this story shows things are not always that easy or that straight forward.
Make you grateful you are happily married..
I received this book from the publishers after speaking with Becca Mundy @BeccaCMundyand on Twitter. And I am really grateful for being given the chance to read and review it. It was definitely the sort of book I enjoy reading.
I have also added Ali Knights other books to my must buy them list. And look forward to reading them one day.
