Remember Me This Way
Hodder & Stoughton
The new, brilliantly tense psychological thriller by Sabine Durrant, author of the hugely praised UNDER YOUR SKIN.
Everyone keeps telling me I have to move on. And so here I am, walking down the road where he died, trying to remember him the right way.
A year after her husband Zach’s death, Lizzie goes to lay flowers where his fatal accident took place.
As she makes her way along the motorway, she thinks about their life together. She wonders whether she has changed since Zach died. She wonders if she will ever feel whole again.
At last she reaches the spot. And there, tied to a tree, is a bunch of lilies. The flowers are addressed to her husband. Someone has been there before her.
Lizzie loved Zach. She really did.
But she’s starting to realise she didn’t really know him.
Or what he was capable of . . .
This is the second Sabine Durrant novel I have read – the first being Under Your Skin – Ms Durrant certainly knows how to write a gripping psychological thriller! I am already bookmarking this to go in my “best of crime fiction reads” list for 2015. The writing is brilliant, evocative; the constant sense of foreboding, of violence, of something evil lurking in the periphery weighs heavy on your shoulders as you read.
This is a very clever plot – twisted and constantly surprising revealing yet more “truths” as lies, soon you do not know what or who to believe but you do know to fear…for me the spectre of violence is more powerful than in-depth descriptive acts of violence and the threat rings loud and clear in this read, it is brilliant.
