"Sonia, forty-three, is a strikingly attractive wife and mother with a lovely house overlooking the Thames in London. Her life is a picture of perfection and normalcy. But when fifteen-year-old Jez, the gorgeous nephew of a neighbor and friend, shows up on her doorstep one evening, she's prepared to sacrifice it all to keep him. Fiercely drawn to Jez by a compulsion that she scarcely understands, Sonia finds herself holding him hostage in her home, awakening a torrent of memories of a wild and intense teenage relationship that unveil the tragic events at the root of her obsession and build up to a brilliant ending. A fast paced and darkly compelling psychological thriller, KEPT IN THE DARK is a story about the power of obsession and the crime next door, where apparent respectability can hide all manner of sins"-- Provided by publisher.

From the moment he shows up on Sonia's doorstep, the gorgeous teenage boy awakens a torrent of memories that threaten to reveal a terrifying truth. Drawn to Jez by a compulsion that she scarcely understands, Sonia takes him captive--prepared to sacrifice everything to keep him"-- Provided by publisher.

pretty creepy, wasn't sure where this was going or the character's motivation. ending revelation was rather surprising. not surprised at ?Sonia's fate though.

It reminded me of Stephen King's Misery without the suspense.
