Comment: Van der Vlugt is one of the best thriller writers of my country. I already read some of her books and they were all pageturners. And this wasn't any different. You get sucked into the story pretty quickly. And together with Sabine you're trying to figure out who killed Isabelle nine years ago. You really get to know Sabine, the way she lives and works and how she became the woman she is now. As the story developes, Sabine's memory is coming back piece by piece. She's starting to remember things from her past, but doesn't know if it is real or that she dreamed about it. And neither do you. There are a lot of questions in the story, you want answers to. That's what makes this so good and interesting from beginning to end. And the end had a fascinating plot twist. It was one of the possible scenario's in my head, but towards the end I didn't expect the story to go in that direction. I can recommened this to anyone!
