    1. Nina Todd meets Rupert,' the most handsome man she has ever seen in real life,' while attending a work training course. She returns home to her boyfriend Charlie, her office job and hopes to leave her indiscretion at the hotel and return to her normal life. Unfortunately Rupert wants more.Nina Todd has Gone is a slow burning psychological thriller.

    2. This was an unsatisfying read. The premise was interesting - a woman has a one night stand with a stranger and finds she can't shake him off. Almost every character in the book has a secret.But the twist came early, if indeed there ever was one. And Nina's background and her childhood was explained, but not Rupert/Mark's. The story just kind of fizzled out towards the end and became predictable and unsurprising.


    3. A Twisted Story of RevengeNina Todd has a nice, pleasant life. She has a job she likes well enough, and she has just moved in with her boyfriend, Charlie. Things are even going well with Charlie's mom, whose only complaint about Nina is her avoidance of discussing her past or anything even slightly personal. Nina has her reasons, and they are more sinister than anyone could imagine.While away on a business trip, Nina meets Rupert, a handsome, charming man who offers to buy her dinner. She never [...]


    4. Summary from the back cover: Nina Todd is not the sort of person you'd notice - and that's the way she likes it. She lives a quiet life: dull job, dependable boyfriend, no disruptions. When Nina meets Rupert in a hotel, it leads to an empty adulterous encounter that she'd rather forget. But it soon becomes clear that Rupert won't. Is it pure infatuation, or something more sinister? Who is Rupert, and what is the power he holds over her? And who is Nina Todd?I ended up not finishing this after ha [...]

    6. I have read many of Lesley Glaister's books and enjoyed them, but I felt this fell short of the mark.The usual flashes of brilliance are there in the way this author uses descriptive language, but for me other aspects let it down. The tale is told from the perspective of different characters (Nina & Rupert) in 1st person present tense. with inserted chapters told in 3rd person past tense. I did not have an issue with this, I just think it could have been handled better. Rather than build cha [...]


    7. A passable thriller - Nina Todd has a one night stand on a work retreat, and rushes home early to her partner, full of remorse. Then the man she slept with begins stalking her, and the secrets in her past threaten to become exposed.The narrative is split into Nina's narrative, and the man stalking her. They're both very disturbed characters, and it's difficult to connect to them - I found them both terribly off putting. Nina's motivations for some of the things she does are impossible to fathom [...]


    8. I really enjoyed this one. It was confusing to start with, flipping between three points of view, although gradually I realised there was symbol at the top of each chapter that helped you figure out which character was sharing their point of view. Gradually it came together, anyway, and turned into a really gripping thriller.Neither of the main characters were particularly likeable, so it wasn’t so much rooting for good to prevail, but to find out what happened and what the big plan was. I tho [...]


    9. Two damaged people on a collision course, unknowable damage being inflicted around them. In truth, this type of unsettling psychological thriller is a bit removed from what I prefer to read, nevertheless the skill with which Nina is drawn, the deft placing of tiny hints of not-normal and inexplicable behaviour is impressive.


    10. This book was a little confusing in the beginning. However when I settled in to it it was very interesting. There are two viewpoints and the novel shows the same scenes twice; first from one then from the other. I'm not sure I can say any more without giving too much away. It's not great but not bad either.


    11. Another cheap Kindle buy, so not something I'd pick up in a shop, but I read it all and enjoyed it mostly. There were times when the protagonist had me wincing and thinking "oh no, now why did you do something as stupid as that?", but overall it was good to pass the time with this book.


    12. A quirky writer with an interesting tale to tell. Two unreliable narrators and an implausible conclusion. Lovely interlude in North Ronaldsay in the Orkney Islands. Good summer read


    13. 4.5 stars. This is the third book by Lesley Glaister I've read. While I absolutely loved this book, I did not enjoy it as much as what I had read from her previously. But then that's not saying much as her other books are my very favorites. I don't know why I didn't take to this one as much. Probably because I felt very emotionally involved in her other books, whereas with Nina Todd I felt more like a third party watching things happen.But this is an extremely good book. Lesley Glaister's writin [...]


    14. I am not a fan. This book left me feeling very unsatisfied. A story about a woman who finds herself stalked by her one-night stand definitely sounds like an interesting premise but, unfortunately for us, that's not really what this book is about. The synposis is very misleading and the book you get instead is a fractured mess of a thriller that's trying to be mysterious but falls short in all aspects.Yes, there are times when it's subtly unsettling in that delicious psychological way, but those [...]


    15. This is not my usual sort of book at all, but I found myself not wanting to put it down. I think we all know what it's like to have things in our life we would rather move on from, and I connected personally because there are people in my life I have wanted to leave behind, only to find out they know someone I know, and it leaves you with a feeling of uncertainty, you feel exactly like you did before. I don't know if an appreciation for this book will come only if you have experienced something [...]


    16. Wouldn't read it again. It was ok. Bit confusing at the beginning. Jumps between three different perspectives and between first and third narrative, which became a bit hard hard to keep up with. Also the book isn't quite how the synopsis makes it out to be and you learn this quite early on, which disappointed me as I was looking forward to a good straightforward stalker book. Not a keeper in my opinion!


    17. Thought this was an excellent thriller. Nina, a young woman with a secret past, finds herself being stalked by someone from that past seeking revenge for her 'crime'. The book is told in three alternating parts by Nina in the present day, her 'stalker' Rupert and Nina as a child leading up to her 'crime'. Gripping throughout and very hard to put down although the ending could have been better - still 9/10 for me.


    18. I read this novel such a long time ago. I bought it in a shop that has sadly closed down not long after it opened. I think it is sad when book shops close. I clearly remember not been able to put this book down. I was total glued to mystery. I have always wanted to read another book by Lesley Glaister.


    19. Great suspense.I have just found myself a new favorite author! This book was amazing. The characters are completely believable and the suspense builds from the very beginning and the ending is so unpredictable. I loved this book!


    20. I first read this when it was published a while back and have just re read it for my book club. It was chosen as Lesley Glaister is a local author. I have always been a big fan of hers and this novel didn't disappoint the first time round and was just as enjoyable on a second reading.


    21. Μέτριο βιβλίο με μια μέτρια πλοκή,αλλά η συγγραφέας έχει κάνει ένα πολύ καλό ψυχολογικό πορτρέτο της πρωταγωνίστριας, που είναι και η μόνη που σωζει το βιβλίο. Οι υπόλοιποι πρωταγωνιστές αφήνονται κάπως στη τύχη τους





    22. Lesley Glaister never disappoints. She creeps right under your skin with her eye for detail and the stories linger long after the last page is closed.






    23. Nina Todd lives a quiet life but it is turned upside down when she embarks on a relationship with handsome Rupert who is not whom he seems.
