THE NEW CHILLING, PROPULSIVE NOVEL FROM THE AUTHOR OF THE INSTANT NEW YORK TIMES AND USA TODAY BESTSELLING BEHIND CLOSED DOORS.
If you can’t trust yourself, who can you trust?
Cass is having a hard time since the night she saw the car in the woods, on the winding rural road, in the middle of a downpour, with the woman sitting inside―the woman who was killed. She’s been trying to put the crime out of her mind; what could she have done, really? It’s a dangerous road to be on in the middle of a storm. Her husband would be furious if he knew she’d broken her promise not to take that shortcut home. And she probably would only have been hurt herself if she’d stopped.
But since then, she’s been forgetting every little thing: where she left the car, if she took her pills, the alarm code, why she ordered a pram when she doesn’t have a baby.
The only thing she can’t forget is that woman, the woman she might have saved, and the terrible nagging guilt.
Or the silent calls she’s receiving, or the feeling that someone’s watching her…
I received this book for free from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.
Cass is having a bad night and things get worse for her. A woman that she saw stopped at the side of the road, a rainy , creepy dark road, winds up dead.
This is exactly the type of book I dive into and do not want to stop until I know what really happened. Cass’s life just seemed to fall apart page after page, I kept thinking how can things get worse for this character? The author really took me on a twisted journey with this one. Cass is now paranoid and is having trouble remembering things. I found this book to be a bit spooky , not one that I would want to read alone in the house at night. All throughout the book I did have some theories that I was right about, I kind of saw where this one was going but I was not one hundred percent sure and that is one of the things that I loved about the book. The fact that it made me question almost every characters real intentions toward Cass was another good thing this book had going for it. I had no idea who Cass could trust, maybe she was the guilty one , I just had no clue.
Towards the end of the book there is a lot of suspense and when I finally find out what really happened, I am not surprised but then something else happens and I am surprised. It’s just that type of book.
