Someone killed Joakim

His girlfriend Sara and his brother Tobias give radically different accounts of what happened.Is Sara really in love with the brother or is she in fact a sociopath who won’t stop at anything, as Tobias claims? 

The Rival gives us the portraits of two characters at the ends of their ropes: Tobias with his intense love-hate relationship with his family and Sara who has negated her own personality in her struggle to be accepted. When each makes a desperate effort to gain control, nothing turns out the way they planned. 

The Rival is a claustrophobic thriller about jealousy, revenge and the consequences of manipulating others.

"I asked myself why I was so spellbound by a novel with a tone so dark that the story offered not even a glimmer of hope. Perhaps because it felt so true to life." - Dast magazine "In a creepy, psychologically thrilling read by author Sandra Gustafsson, The Rival, the reader is introduced to Sara and Tobias. /.../ I so enjoyed The Rival. Once I started reading it, I simply could not put it down. Author Sandra Gustafsson has done a great job in creating characters that are interesting, intriguing, and just a bit unbalanced, exactly the type of characters that will keep her readers obsessively turning the pages of this thrill ride of a read." - Chris Fischer, Readers Favorite "The Rival" by Sandra Gustafsson is an excellent suspenseful mystery. - Paige Lovitt, Reader Views
