Our Kind Of Cruelty by Araminta Hall
‘This is a love story. Mike’s love story.
Mike Hayes fought his way out of a brutal childhood and into a quiet, if lonely life, before he met Verity Metcalf. V taught him about love, and in return, Mike has dedicated his life to making her happy. He’s found the perfect home, the perfect job, he’s sculpted himself into the physical ideal V has always wanted. He knows they’ll be blissfully happy together.
It doesn’t matter that she hasn’t been returning his emails or phone calls.
It doesn’t matter that she says she’s marrying Angus.
It’s all just part of the secret game they used to play. If Mike watches V closely, he’ll see the signs. If he keeps track of her every move he’ll know just when to come to her rescue…
A spellbinding, darkly twisted novel about desire and obsession, and the complicated lines between truth and perception, Our Kind of Cruelty introduces Araminta Hall, a chilling new voice in psychological suspense.” ~ Description from Goodreads
I won this book in a Goodreads giveaway and boy am I happy I did. I was hooked on this book from the very beginning. It was interesting to read a thriller through the point of view of the stalker. There were times while reading this book I was even questioning if everything was REALLY in Mike’s head. Where does V really stand? She seems completely normal but was caught in a few lies. The ending played out….. interesting. I’m curious if there is going to be a sequel to this story. I have a lot of questions but I guess that’s the point of psychological thrillers. The book was complete, but that last sentence of the book….. and Verity…. well I don’t want to say too much and give it away. Excellent read. 4 out of 5 stars. This was a pretty fast pace read. I’ll be looking out for more book from this author.
