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.Review:
Having never read anything by Ms. Kubica before I was happily surprised. I did enjoy the suspense and the pace at which the book flowed. Usually dual points of view bother me, but it worked well in this instance. It was well put together in the past vs the present and allowed the story to play out in it's own time. There were so many elements in here, from depression to elation to mystery to well, you name it, that emotion or element was in this book. Determining the lies from the truth or the lies in the truths was what kept my intrigue throughout the book, it is a definite page turner. It's a clean psych thriller, not much gore or language or graphic scenes at all. Looking for something a little darker this summer? Pick it up!
