What I Hid From You by Heleen Kist

Radha Bakshi and her husband have a successful dental practice, but during a procedure, a patient dies on her watch, leaving her devastated. She starts taking pills (only one every other day) for her anxiety but as her condition worsens she takes more and soon enough it's out of control. She starts writing prescriptions under false names until she receives a letter from the dental health authority questioning the unusual frequency of the prescriptions.

She turns to the internet and realises how easy it is to buy drugs, actually anything online, but is it from reputable companies?.

This is a really top-notch psychological thriller, a true masterpiece!!. One of my tops reads this year.

There's twist after twist throughout the book which left me in awe!!. A truly amazing book.

I have to mention the cover, it's so beautiful and the colours are spot on.

Heleen Kist is a Dutch, formerly globetrotting career woman who fell in love with a Scotsman and his country, and now writes about its (sometimes scary) people from her garden office in Glasgow. 'What I Hid From You' is her third suspense novel, inspired by many a dentist friend.

She was chosen as an up-and-coming new author at Bloody Scotland 2018. Her debut, ‘In Servitude’, won the silver medal for Best European Fiction at the Independent Publishers Book Awards in the USA and was shortlisted for The Selfies awarded at London Book Fair. Her feminist thriller ‘Stay Mad, Sweetheart’ was a finalist in the Next Generation Indie Book Awards and won third place in the inaugural Book Bloggers’ Novel of the Year award 2020.

Heleen hopes you enjoy her writing and would love to hear from you on Twitter (@hkist), Facebook (@heleenkistauthor) or Goodreads. You can also sign up to her newsletter on
