Over Her Dead Body by Tim Adler
There are three sides to every murder: your side, my side and the truth.
When police arrest Keisha Adeane for the murder of her abusive husband, all the evidence points to her guilt. But she claims her husband was in fact murdered by a nurse from the NHS psychiatric hospital where she was sectioned as a teenager.
To find her husband’s killer, Keisha must smuggle herself back inside the secure unit she spent years trying to escape from.
This is my first book by Tim Adler and boy what a ride!!.
Keisha Adeane resides at a psychiatric hospital, she's arrested for the murder of her abusive husband, a Psychiatrist but she claims a nurse did it. Why did she do it? Was there really a nurse or did she imagine it? Nothing much can be said because you have to live it to understand what Keisha is going through. Although he was the victim I have no sympathy for him.
It was an excellent read, Tim is a great storyteller, so intricate with amazing twists that keep you wanting to read the next chapter. Mr Adler, you have yourself a new fan.
