Drowned by Therese Bohman

Marina is spending part of the summer with her older sister, Stella, and her boyfriend, Gabriel (a novelist), at a home that belonged to Gabriel's grandparents in Skane.  Marina is attracted to Gabriel despite his being in a relationship with Stella. Add to this the fact that Stella's job working as a horticulturist keeps her very busy, while Gabriel is at home writing (and alone with Marina) and you have a situation that can only end badly. Things get even more complicated when Marina suspects that Gabriel's occasional uncontrollable anger causes him to hurt Stella.  Is Marina more concerned with herself and her own twisted happiness or will she help her sister instead?  That is the question.  A disturbing read.
