The story opens with the police knocking on Todd and Alice Campbell's door to ask Alice for some background information regarding the death of Howard Grant, her best friend Kat's husband. Howard had been found on the deck of his pool where he had apparently fallen to his death from a second storey balcony. Police were trying to determine whether the fall had been accidental or if foul play was involved.
As the investigation progresses, police begin to question Alice quite aggressively, trying to decide if she knows anything that could help with the case. Was the fall an accident? Suicide? Murder? Was Kat involved? What does Alice know about it? Does she even really know Kat?
The book flips back and forth between the present tense murder investigation and the history of Alice and Kat's friendship, starting from three years ago when they met at the airport and struck up this unlikely friendship.
WHAT I LOVED
This book checks a lot of my "what I love in a thriller boxes;"
Kept me guessing
Things that are not as they seem
Characters who are hard to label and continue to surprise me
Twists and turns
A jaw dropping ending
I have been waiting very impatiently for this book to be available, I pre ordered it and was so excited to read it, hoping it would live up to the hype and it DID!!!!
It was so darn hard to put down! I had to download the audio book so I could listen to it in my car as I ran my errands and shuffled my kids around.
The ending blew my mind!!!!! Wow!
WHAT I DIDN'T LOVE
Some of the descriptions went on too long and some of the side stories were unnecessary to the main plot. That was really about it. Everything else was very very good.
So worth the wait. I highly recommend for anyone who likes domestic thrillers which are plot driven and move quickly.
The only thing that nagged at me afterwards was the document that Alice typed up and gave to her lawyer. Unless I missed something, we were never told what it contained. Yes, she told Kat what it was, in theory, but not the details of it. I don't want to give anything away, so I apologize for the vagueness! The only other slight issue I had was that I kept thinking how naive Alice was written to be, yet that clashes with the ending of the story. If you are such a logical person and keep being presented with evidence of someone's true nature you wouldn't keep tossing it aside because of how you feel emotionally. It just doesn't pull together quite right at the end, is what I mean.
Still, I really loved the book and I can't wait for the next one, which I will snatch up right away!
