Officially, Thuis is ruled by the panel, but the true power is held by the committee. They control from a sedentary position, monitoring everything.
As the keeper, it’s Patriz’s responsibility to ensure that the rules are being kept. Sanctions are applied for any breaches – no excuses, no exceptions.
Not even when his own family are breaking the rules.
Tension is rising in Thuis. The panel has been receiving anonymous threats, which is making the leader, Mal, more paranoid than usual. His accusations are relentless, and most of them are directed at Patriz’s sister, Olla. It’s Olla’s son, Connor, who Mal really resents, though. Connor will be his successor, and Mal is determined to prove that he’s unworthy.
Knowing that Mal is trying to gather evidence of Connor flouting the rules, Patriz is keeping a very close eye on his nephew. But he’s so busy monitoring Connor that he misses something crucial.
He fails to notice that Olla’s in over her head.

She also adores Harper Lee’s To Kill a Mocking Bird and Capote’s In Cold Blood. Her favourite authors include Chevy Stevens, Alice Sebold, Hugh Howey, Mo Hayder, Maria Snyder, John Saul, and Margaret Atwood.
