DESCRIPTION:
My name is David James Forrester. I'm a solicitor. Tonight, at 6.10, I killed my wife. This is my statement.' In Melbourne's inner west, David sits in his car, dictaphone in hand. He's sick to his stomach but determined to record his version of events. His wife Elle hovers over her own lifeless body as it lies in the laundry of the house they shared. David thinks back on their relationship - intimate, passionate, intense - and what led to this terrible night. From her eerie vantage point, Elle traces the sweep of their shared past too. Before David, she'd enjoyed a contented life - as a successful filmmaker, a much-loved aunt and friend. But in the course of two years, she was captivated and then undone by him. Not once in those turbulent times did she imagine that her alluring, complex husband was capable of this. Dark, atmospheric and gripping, What Came Before is a stunning literary thriller about the risks you take when you fall in love. 'A chilling, unsettling portrait of an abusive relationship. Pick this one up if you enjoyed The Lovely Bones and Gone Girl.' Who Weekly 'This took my breath away. Brilliantly structured and captivating.' Geelong Advertiser 'Anna George has a delightful way with words and dispatches the story with style and class.' Bendigo Weekly 'This debut bodes well for Anna George's future writing prospects.' Sun-Herald
