Beschreibung

An eerie and absorbing novel following a criminal psychologist who has discovered shocking and possibly dangerous connections between a serial killer and her stepdaughter. The book to read for fans of the movie Parasite.

Criminal psychologist Seonkyeong receives an unexpected call one day. Yi Byeongdo, a serial killer whose gruesome murders shook the world, wants to be interviewed. Yi Byeongdo, who has refused to speak to anyone until now, asks specifically for her. Seonkyeong agrees out of curiosity. 

That same day Hayeong, her husband’s eleven-year-old daughter from a previous marriage, shows up at their door after her grandparents, with whom she lived after her mother passed away, die in a sudden fire. Seonkyeong wants her to feel at home, but is gradually unnerved as the young girl says very little and acts strangely. 

At work and at home, Seonkyeong starts to unravel the pasts of the two new arrivals in her life and begins to see startling similarities. Hayeong looks at her the same way Yi Byeongdo does when he recounts the abuse he experienced as a child; Hayeong’s serene expression masks a temper that she can’t control. Plus, the story she tells about her grandparents’ death, and her mother’s before that, deeply troubles Seonkyeong. So much so that Yi Byeongdo picks up on it and starts giving her advice. 

Written with exquisite precision and persistent creepiness, The Only Child is psychological suspense at its very best.

THIS.IS.SO.SO.CREEPY!!! I actually don't have words to describe the shivers I got while reading this.. Don't read it right before bed would be my only advise. But still read it - > Yes, it's that good..

5/5

One hell of a book!

Bewertet: Buch (Taschenbuch)

'Memory is a strange thing. Your mind remembers only what it wants to remember. It keeps only what it can handle.' This book is still giving me chills. So greatly written and constructed, with such slow suspense that it made everything even more creepy & the whole atmosphere while reading it was that....one of creepiness. To me this is one of the best psychological thrillers I have read in a very long time. It's about what childhood trauma does to someone and how that might define that person to become evil or not. Definitely a story that I won't forget that easily!
