It was the job she had dreamed of since childhood. But on her very first day, when an unnerving encounter drags up memories Sophie Greenwood would rather forget, she wonders if she has made a mistake. A fatal mistake.
What is her ambitious young assistant really up to? And what exactly happened to Sophie’s predecessor? When her husband and daughter are pulled into the nightmare, Sophie is forced to confront the darkest secrets she has carried for years.
As her life begins to fall apart at work and at home, Sophie must race to uncover the truth about her new job…before it kills her.
I’ve met Mark Edwards. He’s a nice guy. That doesn’t stop him coming up with thrillers that make you that little bit more wary of the people you live near, or work with. And The Devil’s Work does just that as we watch Sophie Greenwood’s new dream job become a nightmare. Is she imagining things, or is she in real danger?
This is another great solo book from Mark Edwards (Mark also co-writes thrillers with Louise Voss) with plenty of twists and turns to keep you guessing. Oh, and there is a certain appearance by detective constable Darren Paterson. 😀
If you’re a fan of domestic thrillers, you’ll like this. I loved it (and not just ’cause my namesake is in it!)
The Devil’s Work is published tomorrow (13th September).
