"An amazing work"
Rachel Beckett is a well-to-do woman, educated and in love
with her husband Martin. She is crazy about her daughter
Amy, but her world ends when blood tests prove that it is
impossible for Martin to be the biological father of Amy.
Martin confronts Rachel who becomes so distraught she takes
his gun. When the police arrive, they find Martin shot to
The police investigate and arrest Rachel. A jury
convicts Rachel of murder in the first degree. She serves
twelve years of a life sentence when she is finally
released. She plans on one thing with her new freedom,
vengeance on the individual who wronged her.
Julie Parsons writes excellent psychological suspense
that is reminiscent of the works of Ruth Rendell and
Minette Walters. Although this is a third person account,
the protagonist's every thought is available so that the
audience understands her motivation. EAGER TO PLEASE is a
haunting novel that will please its audience from the first
page to it's dramatic climax.
