This psychological thriller kept me guessing until the end. The Package tells the story of Dr. Emma Stein, who has had mental health issues since she was a child. The book starts with the introduction of a ghost named Arthur who she “meets” when she is six years old. Fast forward into adulthood and Emma is married to Philipp. Then, one fateful day, she is raped and her hair is cut off. But it seems like no one will believe her. Emma takes matters into her own hands and there are a few violent, bloody scenes in the book that really make the reader lean into the fact that Emma is quite unreliable as a protagonist. A mysterious package shows up in the middle of it all and then disappears. This adds a lot of suspense to the storyline.
Although The Package does not have a lot of characters, it is written just right so that the reader questions the validity of each character’s story. It is a masterfully written thriller that will give you goosebumps.
