STAR RATINGS GUIDE

Twisted Me Round Its Little Finger

THE BIRDICT

🧡 So. I was Tow-Tally unprepared for this. I started off thinking this was a Devil-Wears-Prada situation. Girl in NYC gets job with nightmare uber glam boss. Non-spoiler alert: It isn’t. Nor is it a standard thriller.

💚 This is a story of the dark side of grief, of mental illness and the lengths some to which some will go to save face. It is also a shocking indictment of making people pay for healthcare.

💜 It’s definitely a psychological thriller, but with the emphasis on psychological. It has the claustrophobia of Misery and the Prada of The Devil Wears and a twist that will buy my chiropractor a yacht.

Big thanks to NetGalley and HarperCollins UK Audio for providing me with an ALC in return for an honest review.

SQUAWKING THE TALK

🎧 Emma Ashton delivers a gothic-style performance that keeps the tension ratcheted up. The whole production was so moreish, I sped through it in a day.

I must be super jaded, because I didn't share Sarah's shock or fear at the delusions. I think I'd have been fine with that part of the job.

Nanny Needed

THE BLURB

When Sarah Larsen answers the Bird family’s advertisement, her life changes overnight.

The job seems like a dream come true: nannying in a glamorous penthouse apartment with a salary that adds several zeroes to her current income.

Sarah signs the contract binding her to complete secrecy without a second thought. These are important people, after all – they can't be too careful about who they let into their home.

All is well until events in Sarah’s life begin to take a sinister turn and the trail leads back to the Birds. She soon realises there's something very strange about the family.

But by then, is it too late for her?
