The Devil's WorkThe Devil’s Work by Mark Edwards

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

It was the job she had dreamed of since childhood. But on her very first day, when an unnerving encounter drags up memories Sophie Greenwood would rather forget, she wonders if she has made a mistake. A fatal mistake. What is her ambitious young assistant really up to? And what exactly happened to Sophie’s predecessor? When her husband and daughter are pulled into the nightmare, Sophie is forced to confront the darkest secrets she has carried for years.
This was a good solid read. I loved the character of Sophie who is by turns naïve but brave and determined to fight for her family and her job. After being out of the work place for some time, she finds it difficult juggling family vs career but is desperate to make a good impression at work. So she over compensates, haven’t we all at some time or another. But in the end, being nice doesn’t cut it and Sophie has to learn to stand up for what she believes in and confront the evil lurking behind the scenes.
I received a copy of this book from Netgalley.

The Devil’s Work is available from Amazon here.
