Reviewed in the United States on April 6, 2020
This was a pretty good read about a deranged, delusional doctor(Amit) intent on prolonging life beyond death. He has a subservient, pitiful wife Alisha and a daughter (Eve) who suffers from a debilitating disease that he informed Alisha had been inherited from her. He sets up a laboratory at the end of their garden and steals drugs from the theatre when he attends operations as the anaesthetist. His aim is to become world-famous by preserving bodies that can be brought back from the dead.
Next door to them live Emily, Ben and their little boy. Despite efforts by Emily to befriend Alisha, something seems off until Alisha agrees to allow Emily to visit her without Amit knowing and to delete the recordings of her visits on the CCTV footage that Amit has installed all over.
Alisha lures Emily over one evening and she gets taken hostage by Amit who intends to use her for his research.
Two things really annoyed me in this book. The first was inferring that Anaesthetists are not great doctors and that this is a branch of medicine reserved for non-achievers. The second was Alisha's behaviour throughout the story but the latter was rectified at the end of the book with an interesting twist. 4 Stars.
