Summary

She wants to learn everything – about you.

Mel has practised law for twenty years. She is well-regarded by her peers. Her clients are happy. But behind the scenes her life is disordered. Her son grows increasingly distant from her. The married man she is sleeping with fails to give her what she needs.

When a trainee lawyer is allocated to Mel it is poor timing. The last thing she wants is a pupil watching her every move. And Natasha does watch. She sees each detail – and every mistake. Mel cannot shake the feeling that Natasha isn't just learning the job. She is learning Mel.

Natasha is good at getting what she wants, and now Mel has the power to give her all she desires. But when Mel chooses not to, Natasha knows just what Mel's vulnerabilities are – and how to turn them against her. Mel's secrets could ruin her. But who will be believed?

A twisted and gripping tale of desperation and revenge perfect for fans of Renée Knight, Sarah Vaughan and Michelle Frances.

Critic reviews

Tense, twisty, and a great read.

Listenable

Not quite what I was expecting. Have read/ listened to other books with this type of plot, unfortunately this just didn't quite hit the mark for me. I felt that it was quite padded out, with lots of missed opportunities that could have made it a more fulfilling listen! I don't like to write wishy washy reviews although I see it as positive criticism with the intention of improvement. Having said this it's only my opinion and another reader/ listener's feedback may well be completely different to mine. It's an easy listen and I did feel I wanted to finish the book to see what the outcome was. That is a positive thing so don't be to put off😉 not everyone can enjoy every novel everyone else finds enjoyable. I'm not sure but believe this Author is relatively new, so practice goes a long way and I'm sure her novels will improve over time. I will certainly look out for more. Good concept just could have been better.
