Author: Katherine Croft
You wake up to find the man beside you is dead.
He is not your husband. This is not your bed.
What do you do?
The story follows Tara Logan. A mother of two- children, who lives a quiet life in the suburbs with her husband Noah. However, one morning- after a night of drinking, she wakes up next to her neighbor Lee- who has been brutally murdered in the night. With no recollection of what happened or whether she had anything to do with it- this is a tense, psychological thriller, up in the leagues of Girl on the Train.
This is the first thriller that I’ve ever read from Katherine Croft and I’ve got say I was pretty impressed, considering I’ve read so many of these- it takes an awful lot for me to enjoy a thriller these days, without finding them irritating and predictable.
Although there are almost certainly some plot-holes that you will need to glaze over and take as a fiction-story, rather than an actual true-to-life thriller, there’s a lot about this book that is to be appreciated.
Croft certainly seems to have well-researched this book. The characters are well-developed and I really enjoyed her writing style. She’s fast-paced, eloquent- and although I didn’t adore the end result…
ultimately, I found it very entertaining, intense and I won’t lie- I didn’t really have a clue how it was going to end!
