The Boy At The Door is a taut psychological thriller by debut author Alex Dahl.
Early reviews have this one pegged as quite the captivating page-turner, I’m looking forward to getting stuck into it, and some of our readers are already reading it.
Protagonist Cecilia Wilborg seems to have it all, the perfect life; handsome husband, two gorgeous daughters and a large house in Sandefjord.
The perfect life may just be the perfect construct because the arrival of the small, friendless eight-year old Tobias threatens to bring Cecilia’s world crashing down around her.
Cecilia is trying hard to fit in but one mistake has far reaching repercussions.
The release I received with the book has a short note from the author stating that she was actually living in Sandefjord with her two children when she wrote The Boy At The Door. This is a lovely, idyllic, peaceful little town that Dahl’s novelist’s mind immediately began imagining darkness beneath the perfect surface.
