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…
This was a page turner and the first book I’ve read from this author. I know her last book was very popular but I haven’t gotten my hands on it yet. Cass is a likable character that seems to be suffering from anxiety and early onset dementia. Her memory is unreliable and the fact that she was the last person to see a new friend alive, is messing with her head.
Her husband and friends are worried about her and are trying to get her the care she needs but she is not making it easy for them. Filled with unreliable narrators, this book will have you guessing until the very end.
I gave this book, 4 crowns.
I received this book from the publishers through Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
