SPOTLIGHT of The Boy at the Door by Alex Dahl

Cecilia Wilborg is the perfect wife and mother. With her beautiful home in the affluent Norwegian town of Sandefjord and her carefully constructed social circle, she works hard to keep it all together—too hard. Cecilia is harboring a few skeletons in her closet and one mistake from her past could destroy everything.

Annika Lucasson has lived a hard life and knows how it feels to lose everything several times over. After suffering a number of relapses and continual abuse from her drug-dealer boyfriend, she is desperate to save herself, even if she has to cross a line to do so. Because Annika knows about Cecilia’s secrets—and that Cecilia will do anything to protect them.

When no one comes to pick up a small boy at the community pool, Cecilia agrees to give him a ride home, only to find his address is an empty, abandoned house. This is the first in a tangled series of events that rapidly lead to the unraveling of her meticulously crafted life, as her and Annika's worlds collide.

Beautifully crafted and delightfully complex, Dahl has created a captivating atmospheric ride with heart breaking twists and turns that keep you on the very edge of your seat. THE BOY AT THE DOOR is an unnerving yet believable misadventure, leaving you startled, shaken, and wanting more.
