Wow! What a ride! This was a fast-paced thriller that captivated my attention from the first chapter.
I listened to the audiobook, narrated by Clare Corbett, Louise Brealey, and India Fisher, all of whom give top notch performances. The story lent itself well to multiple narrators as it is told from the perspective of 3 different characters, none of which are particularly reliable. Who's telling the truth? Who can be trusted? What is the right more

It took me a few chapters to get into the groove of this book since it is told from the perspective of 3 different people. But soon, I was hooked and had to keep going until I finished it. The characters were real and flawed. I didn't love them, but I didn't hate them either. In a way, they were each a bit of a train wreck, and it was hard to look away.

An excellent first thriller by this author.

Couldnt put it down. A thriller and a drama that each page makes you want to leap into the scene.

Great mystery/thriller. Kept my attention. Could not put it down. This will make a great discussion for our March 2015 bookclub. I liked better than Gone Girl.
