Review: Jillian and Gordon appear to be the perfect couple. Successful architect wife, policeman husband, 2 beautiful children. But things behind closed doors aren't always what they seem. Gordon is physically and emotionally abusive. Jillian wants to leave but is afraid Gordon will do something to the children. Eventually, Jillian is on the run with the kids with her husband in hot pursuit.
This book started out strong. Gordon is a smart abuser, he knows how to make his wife appear stupid and embarrass her in public settings. I was really engaged in the story until Jillian went on the run with her kids and then it stalled for me. Overall, I liked it.
