He enjoys her terror, relishing her fears and clearly looking forward to accomplishing the evil that is his only real ambition. Yet the weakness of the well-tailored plot lies in the fact that Grace is an intelligent, educated woman trapped in a hideous situation and she could try to defend herself sooner than she does.
Nobody knows what they would do in when faced with the menace that is Jack. Grace turns into an example of what a frightened woman can be reduced to. And when she finally makes the decision to kill Jack , she is overcome by the fear of failure and what that would mean. Grace is lucky that she gets away with it. She builds what is left of her courage to the point that she can convince friends her husband has disappeared while she is on a trip abroad.
She carefully makes international calls begging him to call her back when she is clinging to the hope that he is dead. And he is dead. The triumph of the book, which should not be disclosed until it is read, is how he has died. Click here for reprint permission.
