“So tell me about yourself,” he says. He smiles what he hopes is a sweet smile – neither too big nor too small, one that hints at a wry, maybe even offbeat sense of humour that he thinks would appeal to her. He wants to charm her. He wants her to like him.”
All the Wrong Places by Joy Fielding (2019,Penguin Random House Canada)
Fielding begins her novel with a description of the online predator that plays an important role in her story. I like that right from the start the reader knows his intentions – and that he deliberately plans to ensnare women.
I loved this fast-paced thriller. If you want to know more, you can read my review here.
What do you think of the introduction to the online predator?
