Description

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…

Review

Cass feels unsafe after realising that she had passed the murdered persons car, had seen but not recognised the driver, could have made more of an effort to help but had not. She feels guilty, she feels like she is being watched, she feels like she is getting ill just like her mother had.

This starts out well building some tension, you begin to feel for Cass who who seems to be not just loosing her memory and more but is worried that she is never going to get better only worse. However, the book looses it’s way and I almost stopped reading but I carried on. I’m glad I did as it does pick itself up and gives a good ending.

Rating: 3.5 stars
