When a couple celebrates their eleventh marriage anniversary at their old mansion far from the city of Naples, Florida, they begin experiencing paranormal events. While trying to find out the truth of what’s happening, they encounter a girl wandering in the mansion.
She is the girl whom the couple never wanted to see again in their life.
Surrounded by their sinful past and the girl’s deathly traps, the couple tries hard to escape the mansion. But they are stuck. There is no way out of the mansion. Every second, they approach their end.
There are many secrets buried in the mansion—about the girl, about the couple, and about their past.
Tribulation is a masterpiece of suspense, a thriller with some mild elements of horror from the imagination of Jaydeep Shah.
Six yaears ago partners Alex and Casie hatched a cruel plan to murder Ana, a young accountant, for her father's holdings. Now, Casie receives a strange phone call that forces her to return to the mansion where it all happened. As Casie and Alex celebrate their eleventh wedding anniversary they experience a series of strange events. At the center of the events is a woman they expected to never see again. Ana has returned to make Casie and Alex pay for her tribulations.
Diving right into the action, Tribulations was a heart pounding read from the very beginning. There has been a murder, but we don't know of who or the reasons surrounding it. Casie and Alex are an interesting couple, power hungry, driven, sadists with absolutely no scruples. Ana is painted as their exact opposite, caring, polite and moral. Combining these characters makes for an intriguing, disastrous and fast-paced trial of pain and punishment. There was a sense of something paranormal throughout the story, but it never quite manifests. There would definitely be another layer of excitement for me as well as some more explanation of motives if this element is incorporated. As the story moves, an element of mystery is brought in with a separate game that law enforcement might be playing. Ending on a cliffhanger, I'll definitely have to find out what happens to this group moving forward.
