About the Book

Who would you believe?
In this terrifying first psychological thriller by bestselling author T.W. Ellis, will one woman goes on the run and is forced to question everything she held dear . . .
So, Jem is your next door homemaker/yoga teacher, quiet as a mouse living in a sleepy suburban house with winemaker husband Leo. All is well until one morning, after her husband leaves for the day, she is confronted by brand new information about her trusted husband. Suddenly she is on her own, not knowing where to go, whom to trust. She runs from her house, into the wild but where would she go from there? Can the police be trusted? After all, she just ran away from two people from the FBI who had just tried to kill her! Behold the roller-coaster ride she takes along with the old foul-mouthed Trevor and his dog. Things are about to get real nasty from here!
What would you do when you’re confronted by the police, dropping a HUGE bomb of information about your husband who literally means the world to you? RUN I’d say, but where to? Apparently there’s a drug cartel involved. They are dangerous, aren’t they? I loved the way Jem reacts to the danger in front of her. That’s exactly what I’d have done if I were in such situation. She makes bad decisions, trusts strangers and makes rude, sarcastic comments on cartel men. Probably trained killers. The conversations between Trevor and Jem were darkly funny and surprisingly entertaining.
The story narrated by Jem follows the events following the day after the KNOCK AT THE DOOR and slowly explores to how Leo and Jem met. With a breakneck speed, the chapters fly in a jiff hooking the readers with the necessary anticipation and curiosity. I completely enjoyed the female action, dark humor, and unexpected twists, especially that ending!! Highly recommended thriller of 2020.
