After enduring two family tragedies-the deaths of her parents in a traffic accident and her husband's murder-Kate Parker struggles with a decade-long debilitating anxiety disorder that compels her to worry obsessively and rely on statistical data to accomplish daily tasks. Feeling that she is cursed and unsafe in her own home, the paranoid Kate implements extraordinary safety measures. Are her fears justified or is it all in her head? With her disorder threatening the custody of her ten-year-old son, Kate throws caution to the wind when she meets the handsome Jago, a professor who offers her a possible cure through an experimental approach. What Kate discovers during the experiment could endanger her family far more than her anxiety disorder ever could.
Verdict: If readers can tolerate a slow beginning, they will be rewarded with a suspenseful tale featuring surprising twists. Fans of Millar's The Playdate or British psychological thrillers might consider adding it to their reading list.
