This book is similar to Gone Girl. Jack Angel finds Grace and her sister Millie in a park. Grace finds Jack the perfect gentleman and boyfriend but after they marry, she sees the dark side of Jack. Jack uses Grace as a front to be his wife but also to lure her sister Millie to appease his desire to instill fear in people. Grace is locked up as a prisoner in their house and is tortured every time she does or says the wrong thing. The story weaves thru Grace’s experience with Jack and how she has to come up with a way to save Millie from coming to live with her and Jack. The book is a quick read but the plot really became intense about 3/4 of the way in. The beginning of the book seemed too predictable but that changed when Grace started realizing how she could beat Jack at his game.
