While she seems to have it all, Sophie Knight is looking for more. When gorgeous and carefree Michael Frisk walks into her life, he offers the excitement and passion she desires.
Sophie is willing to risk everything she has. After all, she is used to concealing things from her husband—like her alcoholism, her unhappiness. But soon she has more to hide. She wakes up one morning in an alcoholic haze and finds bruises on her body, but has no recollection of what happened to her. Was she raped?
When unsettling notes and mysterious phone calls start, Sophie wonders whom she should turn to. Is Michael the cause of the frightening things happening in her life, or is he the answer to her problems?
The story of this is told in the form of a diary. Sophie decides to start a diary after a night out which she remembers nothing about. She wakes up bruised and with a dress ripped down the back. Sophie believes something has happened but when she tries to find out she is just repeatedly told nothing did she was just drunk.While trying to figure out what happened she starts an affair with one of the young men who was with her that night and soon her life begins to spiral.
I’m honestly not sure how I feel about Sophie. She starts off incredibly unlikeable, to me anyway, but as time goes on you want her to get justice for the things that have happened around her. She is an alcoholic and it is implied more than once that she’s imagined things because of it.
This did keep me reading as I wanted to know who was stalking Sophie and what really happened that night. My only issue is the ending. I won’t go into detail as to do that I would have to give away the ending, no spoilers here, but I felt very unsatisfied and wanted to see more justice done.
