One Fatal Night by Hélene Fermont


One woman’s quest for revenge unearths a fatal secret from her past.

Astrid Jensen holds one man responsible for her mother’s suicide, and she’ll do whatever’s necessary to get close to Daniel Holst and destroy his life – even if it means sleeping with him to gain his trust. Astrid knows he’s not who he pretends to be. But before she can reveal his dark secret, people from her mother’s past start turning up dead, and it looks like she and Daniel are next. In order to survive, she might have to put her trust in the man she has hated for so long.

Daniel Holst has worked hard to climb into Norway’s most elite and glamorous circles, and he’s not about to let any woman bring him down. But when a psychopathic killer starts murdering people from his shadowy past, he discovers that the only person who might be able to save him is the woman who wants to destroy him.

As Astrid digs deeper into her past, she uncovers secrets long buried and realizes everything she once believed is based on lies. What began as a quest to avenge her mother’s death becomes a desperate struggle for survival and leads to the truth about what happened one fatal night ten years ago—and the surprising mastermind behind the most recent murders.

If you’re a fan of Gillian Flynn, Liane Moriarty, and Debbie Howells, you’ll love this character driven thriller with a noir edge.


Welcome to my spot on the One Fatal Night Blog Tour hosted by Damppebbles Blog Tours.  

You hit the ground running in this fast-paced suspense thriller. Astrid Jensen is out to avenge her mother’s death and her two targets are onto her. As she plays a cat and mouse game with the wealthy businessman Daniel Holst and his security consultant Joel Changer, bodies are starting to pile up.  

Most of the characters in this thriller are emotionally scarred from tragic pasts, so the atmosphere is dark and bleak. As their backgrounds unfold and their stories start to meld together by all kinds of disturbing and unbelievable revelations, the tension mounts when an extremely pitiful and psychotic killer exacts his revenge.

Overall, the story is depressing and full of misery and secrets, but eventually, there is a light at the end of the tunnel however uncomfortable it made this reader feel. Hang on psychological thriller fans, you’re in for a gripping and mercurial ride in 133 dramatic pages. 

See my review of Fermont’s We Never Said Goodbye for more psychological suspense.

Thank you to Ms. Fermont for giving me the opportunity to read this book with no expectation of a positive review.
