I went up and checked in our bedroom, but she wasn’t there. I stood in the hallway for a few moments, my head thumping, thinking, She’s left me. Not the other way round-she’s left me. She’d gone n I went back to the car. This time the officer didn’t wait for me to knock. He opened the window and looked at me blankly. Angeline turned, her cheeks red and mottled, and looked past me to the house. She was there when I left. I put my elbow on the roof and dropped my face into the window close to the officer’s.
Mo Hayder is a strange, strange woman. I did enjoy reading this, but part of the mystery was given away by reading the acknowledgments (so beware of that!). it does seem to beg for a sequel, as there were a few loose ends but, all in all, I really enjoyed reading this.
