About the book

Jacqueline loves her husband, despite his increasing tendency to intimidate and manipulate her. It must be her fault, because to the outside world he is always very obliging. Charming, even. Things will soon get better again: caring for her manic depressive mother swallows up a great deal of time and Gijs has not yet got over being made redundant. She has to be patient. And after all, they’re good together aren’t they?

But it’s not that simple. On the contrary. With her French namesake’s deed in mind, eventually Jacqueline can only see one way out. He has to die.

In Seeping Poison Corine Hartman again delivers an excellent, oppressively atmospheric thriller about a family tragedy. – Marie Claire

Beautifully crafted characters, an exquisite plot—Hartman demonstrates once again that she is the Dutch Ruth Rendell. – de Volkskrant

Extraordinary psychological thriller (…) It would come as no surprise to find the book shortlisted for the Golden Noose Award. **** – AD Magazine
