An extravagant anniversary trip turns into a desperate scramble for survival in an unsettling short story about desire, manipulation, and revenge by a New York Times bestselling author.

Psychiatrist Olivia Cole is a shell of herself after only two years with her tyrannical husband, the outwardly perfect Sebastian. On their two-year anniversary, she’s subjected to one power move too many when Sebastian whisks her away on a surprise trip—first to the charming capital of Sweden, then to an unexpected final destination. Miles from home and help, the only way for Olivia to wrest back control of her life is to give Sebastian an even bigger, shocking surprise.

Stockholm by Catherine Steadman is part of Getaway, a collection of six stories about dream escapes that take unimaginable, even sinister, turns. Each piece can be read or listened to in a single sitting. Stockholm (Getaway collection) eBook : Steadman, Catherine: Kindle Store



This is a very dark story which does not really have an ending. It stops with no conclusion other than a hint at the ending. You can draw your own conclusion. It’s a very short read, which I was looking for. Due to the length, you’re not going to have a fully developed story or characters. You do get enough to know that the wife is desperate and in a horrible relationship. Note: domestic violence and abuse elements
