The White City – Karolina Ramqvist

Karin knew what she was getting herself into when she fell for John, the high-flying criminal and love of her life. But she never imagined things would turn out like this: John is now gone and the coke-filled parties, seemingly endless flow of money, and high social status she previously enjoyed have been replaced by cut telephone lines, cut heat, and cut cash. All that remains of Karin’s former life is the big house he bought for her—and his daughter, the child Karin once swore she would never bring into their dangerous world. Now Karin is alone with baby Dream, and the old promise of “the family” has proved alarmingly empty. With the authorities zeroing in on organized crime, John’s shady legacy is catching up with her, and the house is about to be seized. Over the course of a few nerve-wracking days, Karin is forced to take drastic measures in order to claim what she considers rightfully hers. – Goodreads.com

I received this book free from the publisher via netgalley.com in exchange for an honest review.

This novel throws you off in the beginning. There is no background to Karin’s situation, no details or answers given. We are left to guess and infer what we can from Karin’s situation as to the kind of man she was married to and how things went wrong.

The novel is intriguing, following her struggle and meeting her associates. Just when you think you can’t take much more of her milling about, she puts her foot down and makes the strongest choice that she can. So, hang in there.

I can’t wait to see where this story will go!

Can I also add that the cover art is simply stunning?!
