"A chilling, twisty exposed nerve of a novel. Even creepier than Gone Girl. I loved it" (Lauren Beukes, author of The Shining Girls)
"A gripping debut. Raphael Montes is a writer to watch - he will do great things!" (Sophie Hannah)
"A superb achievement ! I was gripped from the very beginning by this, yes, perfect novel, which showcases the author's unparalleled skills in merging literary sensibilities, psychological insight and breath-taking suspense. To top it all off, Montes brings Rio de Janeiro and Brazil to life as few authors, even the best travel writers, could do. Raphael Montes is a must-read!" (Jeffery Deaver)
The path to true love rarely runs smoothly...
Teo, a medical student, meets Clarice at a party. Teo doesn’t really like people, they’re too messy, but he immediately realises that he and Clarice are meant to be together. And if Clarice doesn’t accept that? Well, they just need to spend some time together, and she’ll come to realise that too.
And yes, he has bought handcuffs and yes, he has taken her prisoner and yes, he is lying to her mother and to his mother and to the people at the hotel he’s keeping her at, but it’s all for her own good.
She’ll understand. She’ll fall in love. She’ll settle down and be his loving wife.
