Well written and engaging.
A story about inclusion and acceptance tied up in an intricate and riveting plot.
A monkey is different to an ape, and once people see and accept that, we can appreciate the attributes of the monkey AND the ape. I’m trying to write the review without spoilers.
The story builds and evolves until two women that can’t stand each other are forced into an impossible position. There were always going to be explosions, and our Jay should have seen that a mile off.
It’s a hard-hitting thriller with a softer sub-plot about interconnected relationships and how they adapt to their differences. Lovely storytelling.
Really enjoyed this book. And looking forward to the next one.

Founder of Best Book Editors
Katherine has held almost every single job imaginable, from painting gnomes to zookeeper. She spent most of her life in the caring profession and has managed both a nursing home and a care agency. But her passion for the written language always brings her home to novel writing.
Born in Tyne-and-Wear, North-East England, she has settled in the beautiful Lake District, Cumbria, with her partner, two dogs, a cat, an iguana and a python (just don’t ask her which of those six things is her favourite!).
She specialises in content creation and social media outreach, and has been a developmental editor for hundreds of clients. She owns and operates bestbookeditors.com where she helps foundling authors polish their skills. However, after being diagnosed with a dramatic brain condition in 2022, she has had to let 23 staff go, and scale back the business. BBE is still very much open, we are just fewer and can’t take as much work on.
Katherine Black is the author of psychological thriller/detective/fantasy adventure novels.
