About the Book
Nail-bitingly modern domestic noir
A tense, Hitchcockian psychological thriller
Louise Voss returns with her darkest, most chilling, novel yet…
Lynn Naismith gave up the job she loved when she married Ed, the love of her life, but it was worth it for the happy years they enjoyed together. Now, ten years on, Ed has been diagnosed with early-onset dementia, and things start to happen; things more sinister than missing keys and lost words. As some memories are forgotten, others, long buried, begin to surface … and Lynn’s perfect world begins to crumble.
But is it Ed’s mind playing tricks, or hers…?
With thanks to the publisher for the copy received. The Old You is the first book that I have read by Louise Voss that she has written on her own.
It was a book that left me in awe and lost for words. At the end of chapter one I had decided that I disliked one of the characters. But I was far too quick to judge, things were not as they seemed. As I read more I found that this was a book that completely messed with the reader’s head and I had either underestimated most of the characters in it or been duped. My thoughts and feelings changed constantly.
I hadn’t really read the book synopsis, I sometimes like to go into a book with no knowledge of the storyline and I am glad that I did so with this book. There are no spoilers there but I found it added to the suspense. It is difficult to say anything about the plot without revealing any of the twists so I won’t. All I will say is that it’s intimidating, isolating and very clever.
