Ok this summer of Freida story was a little hit or miss. I liked a bunch of it, but there were times where it was a little unbelievable.
Our main character is Nora Davis, who is a surgeon. She seems like a good person, but she’s harboring a dark secret. For years when she was a little girl, her dad was murdering women in the basement of their home.
Nora spends her life mostly alone and actively rebuffs attention from people who want to change that situation. She’s terrified that someone will find out her secret and ruin her life.
Then, women who were her patients start to disappear. It’s just a coincidence at first, but they eventually end up brutally murdered a la her father’s methods. She’s scared of the following in no particular order: someone knows who she is, someone is trying to frame her for murder, someone may be trying to get her murderous father out of jail, and she might be next.
But then Freida does this thing where she makes you believe that Nora may have been helping her father commit those murders, and she may be doing it again now. I really kept thinking that Nora was actually a murderer for some of the book.
I still think I’d recommend this book because it kept me entertained and did lead me on a path (just like all the other Freida books!).
