My Book Pledge Featured Read: The Gilded Cage

Happy Monday Savvy Readers! While I’m sure many of you are in that post-weekend slump, I’m super excited because one of this year’s most-anticipated thrillers is finally here! That’s right Savvy Readers, this week’s featured read is none other than Swedish crime sensation Camilla Lackberg‘s The Gilded Cage!

A gripping new psychological thriller from the #1 international bestseller Camilla Lackberg, this latest literary offering is a wild ride, so buckle up Savvy Readers! Our story starts with Faye, whose life is pretty much perfect.


It’s so perfect that people would kill to have Faye von Essen’s life. She lives in an ultra-swanky apartment in the most exclusive and desirable area of Stockholm, has a gorgeous husband who gives her everything she’s ever wanted, and an adorable daughter. Her and her husband go all the way back to business school, where their lives met in a moment of serendipity. How is it, then, that Faye finds herself in a police station?


The truth is Faye’s perfect life is an illusion, and the reality is far from what it seems. You see, Jack, her husband, was always well off. Fate, on the other hand? Well, she had to work hard – very hard – to bury a dark past. After leaving school to help Jack launch his business, he seems to have forgotten the sacrifices she made for their life. When she discovers he’s having an affair, the veneer of their false life is pulled away to reveal a reality more horrifying than anyone expected. You see, it turns out… Faye isn’t even her real name, and now she’s been caught out. But Faye’s not going down without a fight. The only question is – who will escape with their life?


The Gilded Cage is a splashy, electrifying story of sex, betrayal, and secrets. This page-turning read will have you hooked from the very first page. Don’t forget to add The Gilded Cage to your My Book Pledge shelf, and let us know if you liked it by commenting down below or tweet us @SavvyReader!
