(Thanks to Netgally & Park Row Books, I received an ARC of this book to review)
New York Times bestselling author of THE GOOD GIRL, Mary Kubica is back with another exhilarating thriller as a widow’s pursuit of the truth leads her to the darkest corners of the psyche.
“The bad man, Daddy. The bad man is after us.”
Clara Solberg’s world shatters when her husband and their four-year-old daughter are in a car crash, killing Nick while Maisie is remarkably unharmed. The crash is ruled an accident…until the coming days, when Maisie starts having night terrors that make Clara question what really happened on that fateful afternoon.
Tormented by grief and her obsession that Nick’s death was far more than just an accident, Clara is plunged into a desperate hunt for the truth. Who would have wanted Nick dead? And, more important, why? Clara will stop at nothing to find out—and the truth is only the beginning of this twisted tale of secrets and deceit.
Told in the alternating perspectives of Clara’s investigation and Nick’s last months leading up to the crash, master of suspense Mary Kubica weaves her most chilling thriller to date—one that explores the dark recesses of a mind plagued by grief and shows that some secrets might be better left buried.
This book really sucked me in within the first paragraph. I love thrillers that make you question the plot from the very beginning and this book definitely did that for me. I loved the fact that there were multiple points of view, I feel it really added to the overall feel of the story. Another thing I loved was that the Points of view of the characters went from then chapters to now chapters. I feel that really helped keep a nice air of mystery throughout the book.
I thought the storyline of this book was very unique, which is what a good thriller needs. I also found that I was thinking the book was predictable throughout reading it, but by the end found out it wasn’t predictable at all.
The characters were interesting, at some points I loved them and at some I questioned their motives, sometimes I even flat out disliked them. I feel this definitely is helpful while reading a thriller.
Overall the book was good, I enjoyed the characters, storyline, and twists, but I felt like something was lacking. I’m still not sure what is was, but I left the book feeling a bit unfulfilled.
