NetGalley Review: Poison

Poison: A Novel - Galt Niederhoffer

I received this book via NetGalley to give an honest review.


Man once I started reading this book it was hard for me to put down. I honestly had no clue which way this book was going to go. A couple that seems to be happy yet the wife seems a bit crazy and ends up becoming sick? You know something is going on, especially with the husband telling white lies and it just builds and builds. I didn't put two and two together until Cass started really putting some thought on to what was going on with her. We see how her husband acts and it just slowly starts to click on to what is truly going on.

In this life you can't trust anyone even if that person is close to you, because they could be dangerous. This marriage is not healthy and we slowly see it start to unravel and yet Cass still holds on strong to making sure her children are safe. 

I ended up giving this book a four and not a five because there were some scenes that really didn't seem believable to me. I know, I know this is a book and it is not made to be 100 percent believable, yet when Cass started dealing with her male neighbor just something seemed off. 

We get the past and the present of what is going on in the household of Cass and it is not all butterflies and sparkles. 

I think the author did a good job with bringing up the way law enforcement and others view women who come to them without proof of being hurt. 

I wouldn't really call this book a mystery more like a psychological thriller that will have you wondering how this will end.
