The phone rings, it’s the middle of the night, the only thing it can be is bad news, right? What if you received a call from your cousin, asking you to do them an important favor? What if your cousin had died prior to when the call was made? Isa is compelled to do as her cousin Alette requests, but as time goes on, she realizes there may be something dark and vindictive about Alette’s motives regarding her ex-husband.
Has Isa really had contact with her dead cousin? As children they shared dreams, but as adults they grew apart. Isa was the mistress of a wealthy South African man, Allete had married and divorced and was living in London, leaving her estate to Isa and beckoning from beyond for her one last request. Will Isa carry out Allete’s plan, regardless of her own beliefs? Is revenge ever worth the danger?
The Midnight Side has, once again proven that Natasha Mostert can write dark and disturbing prose that feels like a spider’s web against your skin. From the eerie phone call to the unique ending, Ms. Mostert takes us on a dark journey that crosses the veil between the living and the dead, the past and the present, dreams and reality and she does it with a flair for words that brings each page alive.
Natasha Mostert writes for the reader who enjoys rich scenery, lavish descriptions and a darkly unique plot driven by characters who seem to see life through a kaleidoscope of distorted visions.
