Some Kind of Peace - A Book Review
Dr. Siri Bergrman runs a private psychotherapy practice in central Stockholm with her best friend Aina. Since her husband's death in a diving accident, Siri has lived alone in an isolated cottage outside the city. Terrified of the dak, she drinks wine to steady her nerves and leaves the ligths on when she goes to bed, unable to shake the feeling that someone is watching through her windows.
This unconventional and evocative thriller marks the first in a seris by sisters Camilla Grebe and Asa Traff.
I belong to the Free Press Book Tours group on Book Blogs and through them I received a copy of Some Kind of Peace. The above quotes are from the back of the book - and it is only an excerpt of the back.... I love a good thriller and there was something haunting about this book that made me excited about opening the front cover.
It is 314 pages of pure drama, excitement and psychological warfare. Siri Bergman is the main focal point of the book and she is a psychtherapist with her own demons. The idea that a psychotherapist is being 'psyched' out by a mad man is extraordinary and if it has been done before it has not been as well as it is here. Siri's fears and acknowledgements ring true to each and every one of us and these sisters (Grebe and Traff) have written a tale that is ageless.
If you are a fan of the thriller genre this book is a must read!
