Descrição

A gripping psychological thriller from the bestselling author of Follow You Home and The Magpies.

It was the job she had dreamed of since childhood. But on her very first day, when an unnerving encounter drags up memories Sophie Greenwood would rather forget, she wonders if she has made a mistake. A fatal mistake.

What is her ambitious young assistant really up to? And what exactly happened to Sophie's predecessor? When her husband and daughter are pulled into the nightmare, Sophie is forced to confront the darkest secrets she has carried for years.

As her life begins to fall apart at work and at home, Sophie must race to uncover the truth about her new job…before it kills her.

Sobre o autor

Mark Edwards and Louise Voss met after Louise saw Mark on a TV documentary about aspiring writers, and a writing partnership was born. Their first two thrillers, Killing Cupid and Catch Your Death, were huge hits when the pair self-published them online, becoming the first UK indie authors to reach No. 1 in both the Amazon Kindle and Amazon Fiction charts.

    Wow - just had to keep reading until the very last word. No interruptions allowed and that doesn't happen very often! Sophie thinks she has found her dream job when her daughter Daisy starts nursery. What could be better than working for a publisher of children's books? Things don't go smoothly from day one and she feels someone has got it in for her but just how much, she has yet to find out. This is one of those books which grab you from the first line and snatches you away like a super fast lift. Brilliant story and I was sorry to reach the end!

    The Devil’s Work was described as a psychological thriller so I was on board. At first I wondered about the description as the characters seemed fairly normal (with the exception of Simon). Our main character, Sophie Greenwood, was recruited to work at Jackdaw Publishing, her dream job.Initially I felt Sophie bordered on boring with her constant checking up on her daughter and husband. She was a stay-at-home mum for 4 years so perhaps that worry and concern is meant to be conveyed. Edwards nailed that perfectly.Once I got into the novel it was clear there were a few mind games going on. There was a split time frame shifting to Sophie’s college life, explaining her obsession to work for Jackdaw Publishing.In the college time frame you see how Sophie met Jasmine and how they became very close. It was later discovered Jasmine was the granddaughter of Franklin Bird, head and founder of Jackdaw Books. (He’s a bit creepy there in the beginning and didn’t get much better as I progressed through the novel. ) Sophie never traded on her friendship with Jasmine to get introduced for employment opportunities with Jackdaw, instead steering clear of the subject since Jasmine was clearly troubled by her family connection and her grandfather in particular. Stay tuned for that once you read this book.So, first day of work for Sophie and the mind games slowly begin. She is immediately introduced to Franklin Bird and he’s just weird. I share his enthusiasm for a gin and tonic but otherwise, let me steer clear of this guy. Sophie asks one of her team members about access to the basement library and hears a story about a suicide and haunting. More creepiness.Her predecessor, Miranda, left with no notice and there is a mystery about that straight away. If you read mysteries or thrillers you’ll think something is fishy about a person who flat out disappears. Sophie is assigned to Miranda’s desk and a locked drawer reveals very old food and loads of cockroaches. Cassie, one of the people Sophie supervises, appears to be sabotaging her with her ambitious and aggressive manner, leaving Sophie out of the loop on important issues. The list goes on.The story ramps up more with accusations of sexual harassment, a hacked Twitter account and offensive post portraying Sophie’s husband in a very bad light, a stalker, arson and more. This book has it all including a chilling wrap up.
