This novel is fast paced, intense, a mental gymnastics that will have you guessing till the end. Lisa Unger is a master suspense story teller that brings to life her stories. I haven’t read a book by her in almost ten years, but I’m so glad I got asked to review this novel. It has renewed how much I enjoy her novels.
