Death Wish Synopsis
Secrets. Lies. Murder.
When Leo decides to go into business with his mother-in-law he soon realises his mistake. Eleanor is the mother-in-law from hell and will stop at nothing to get what she wants. Her daughter, Ashley, has her own reasons for hating her mother. The atmosphere is toxic and old wounds refuse to heal.
Next door, eight-year-old Joya has a difficult life. Her parents argue constantly and her grandmother, who lives with them, is approaching death.
Soon these two families will collide and the consequences might just be fatal…
Be Careful What You Wish For………
The opening chapter of Death Wish has an undercurrent of shock and awe pulling you deeper into the book before you can snatch a breath, Linda has grasped my imagination and sent it wild with anticipation of what’s to come.
Death Wish centres around two families who are neighbours, Leo and Ashley with an interfering mother, who likes nothing better than to pass derogatory remarks about her daughter, then there is Maxine and Vee, Vee has an advanced stage of Huntington’s Disease and her only wish is to end her life with dignity.
On meeting Leo and Ashley we are introduced to there fairly new relationship, Leo runs his own business in Home Renovations and has just recently finished a house which would be Ashley’s dream home. Eleanor, Ashley’s mother has a plan to help Leo acquire the house with the intention of moving into the annex next door. Leo falls for the approach from Eleanor with dire consequences….
The Grass Isn’t Always Greener On The Other Side..
Maxine and Vee struggle with daily life which Huntington’s has pressed upon them, Maxine has a child Joya who doesn’t really understand the affect of the disease but firmly believes her grandmother will get better. Maxine struggles to cope with family life and also what her future may hold as she herself may have Huntington’s but without confirmation of a test she would never know…….
Both families look to each other for solutions to their problems but what would be the consequences.
I found Death Wish an enthralling read in which I couldn’t turn the pages fast enough, Linda managed to open my eyes wide to real life problems which many wouldn’t have to deal with in there lifetime, the research which Linda acquired for Assisted Suicide proved valuable and insightful.
I would like to thank BloodHound, Linda Huber and Sarah Hardy for the opportunity to read and review Death Wish in exchange for an honest review.
Linda grew up in Glasgow, Scotland, but went to work in Switzerland for a year aged twenty-two, and has lived there ever since. Her day jobs have included working as a physiotherapist in hospitals and schools for handicapped children, and teaching English in a medieval castle. Not to mention several years spent as a full-time mum to two boys, a rescue dog, and a large collection of guinea pigs.
Her writing career began in the nineties, when she had over fifty short stories published in women’s magazines. Several years later, she discovered the love of her writing life – psychological suspense fiction. Her seventh novel, Death Wish, will be published by Bloodhound Books in August 2017.
