I *devoured* this book in less than a day! This is the author’s twelfth book, and each one just gets better and better.I love dual timelines, so reading about Nora 26 years ago and present day Nora made her character very realistic. When Nora was 11, she kept hearing noises coming from her father’s “workshop” in the basement. One chance night, the locked doorknob finally opens, and she sees the woman in the cage.Fast-forward 26 years…Nora has changed her last name to escape her father’s notoriety and is living a quiet, solitary life as a practicing surgeon, until two of her female patients turn up dead with their hands removed, her father’s signature.But her father is in prison. Nora is the one who helped put him there. Who is killing these women, and why are they trying to make Nora seem guilty?Perhaps Nora isn’t as innocent as she claims.From reading the flashbacks, I had my suspicions about Nora. Nature vs. nurture is fascinating to me, and I made some assumptions. I was feeling vindicated for awhile but was later proven wrong…and then I got to the last page, and my mind was BLOWN.This author doesn’t play around with her twists. I’ve read most of her books, and her trademark is that “wtf” ending. You’ll sit blankly on the couch for several minutes just trying to process what in the hell you just read. Why she doesn’t get more recognition is beyond me, but if you are looking for a solid thriller that you will read at breakneck speed while you ignore your family’s pleas for dinner, she’s your girl.
I read this in one sitting and was so engrossed that when we had a power failur, I continued reading using a torch.Freida McFadden knows how to write a gripping thriller and this didn’t disappoint.What would you do if you discovered that your father is a serial killer who uses the basement of your family home to keep his victims captive? He only keeps them here until he has successfully severed one of their hands then disposes of their bodies. At last count he had murdered over 30 women, all with black hair and blue eyes.Is the gene for criminal intent passed down from generation to generation? This is the dilemma that faces Dr Nora, a surgeon who has successfully hidden her true identity until two of her patients die in close succession and each body is found with a hand missing. 5 stars.
There’s literally only one author left whose work I’ll always automatically preorder, and it’s Freida McFadden. Her books are just so riveting and impossible to put down. You can always count on some interesting revelations and genuinely surprising plot twists throughout, fascinating psychological insights and ethically grey issues to ponder, and witty, razor-sharp dialogue.As others have summarized, The Locked Door focuses on a surgeon who also happens to be the daughter of a serial killer. She confronts the secrets and potential darkness in herself and those in her life as a couple of her patients die mysteriously—in precisely the way her serial killing father would have killed them if he hadn’t been in prison. The writing style immediately draws you in, and there’s more than enough dry humor to counterbalance the inherent darkness of the subject matter. I stayed up half the night to finish it and was particularly delighted by that final twist!
Well after reading this I will forever be afraid of basements.All along I was suspecting this or that person . in the end I was surprised. I did not see it coming at all.
Nora is a very interesting character. And this book was very well done. I liked the other characters too, but the end twist really, really surprised me! I can honestly say I had no clue until the author revealed the villian.
Good psychological thriller.Nora is a respected surgeon who moved from Oregon and started a new life after finding out her father was a serial killer,when she had just turned eleven.Both her mother and father were arrested,but before any trial,her mother committed suicide.Her father was convicted and was serving life without parole. But suddenly when her life was going so good,two women,whom she had operated on were both killed in exactly the same manner as her father had killed his victims yrs.before. Who knew who she really was and why were they out to make her seem like the killer? Was it her new boyfriend,whom she had known from Med School. Her partner,Philip also a surgeon,who had practically begged her to go into a partnership with him. Nora,couldn’t get a handle on it and neither will you.It is a thriller that you won’t be able to put down,with an ending that is truly shocking. It definitely deserved my 5 * rating.
Freida McFadden is one terrific writer! I don’t know how she keeps turning out book after book & they’re all fresh characters & unique plots, riveting story lines, fast-paced action & totally entertaining! The Locked Door is another nail biter that doesn’t stop from page one to the very last sentence. My only complaint is once I start reading I can’t stop until I reach the twisted end. Keep ’em coming, Freida!
Another great page turner! I read the whole thing on the exercise bike and couldn’t put it down. A must-read!
This author is new to me, but I was looking for a horrorto read, and this seemed to have a good review, so I thought,aww what the hell.This book has twists and turns, and just as you think you’ve got it figured, think again.I would recommend this book to all, thriller / horror fans, but it more thriller than horror.But that being said, I will now read more books by this Author.
I really love this authors work. I found this book gripping from the start. It definitely isn’t a slow burner like a lot of thrillers out there. I recommend you buy this book, read it and then read all her others too. Can’t wait for her next offering.
Read this in one go because I just couldn’t put it down. Fantastic story with many twists and a completely unexpected ending, but almost frightening in places. I always look forward to a new book by Frieda McFadden; her books are unlike any others I’ve read, having unexpected and original storylines. Definitely a favourite author.
One of the best psychological thrillers I’ve read in a long time. Great, fleshed out characters, gripping storyline, and a likeable main character. Really engaging storyline, with a few twists throughout. Highly recommend
….if the book had been about him it would have been so much better. As it is you get the tepid tale of what is left behind. The end is very disappointing, it should have been so so much darker, once you get the “reveal” then it goes all pink and romance.
