it’s a Dutch Crime novel, but the action has shifted early - to London, England - because Margot has gone through with her vacation, despite the fact that her friend Claudia left her in the lurch and cancelled at the last minute. nervous Margot going it alone, as stranger in a strange land. and what kind of horror-show fleabag hotel is this, that she booked herself into (looked different on the internet)!?!!
meanwhile, I do not trust Leon. be careful, Margot! I don’t think I’m supposed to trust this fellow Leon....and, I do not.
uh-huh, I know I'm only a wee bit along, but this is absolutely riveting so far. Margot has moved into new digs, and of course those scenes have hinted at the devastation she is fleeing; a new start, but I'm not convinced there are no loose ends. meanwhile, the scenes showing Edith's predicament were chilling. happy! creeped out, already...but happy!
