Clara herself was a disaster and beyond unlikeable. She was borderline nuts and a bad parent (leaving her NEWBORN in a hot car?! More than once! Can't make this up). Nick to me was slightly more readable, I liked seeing how he was going to get out of his current mess, but at the end, he still left his family with nothing- no money, no life insurance, etc. Horrible.
The Kat thing... well, laughable. Someone Nick dated at 18, in high school, when they were KIDS married someone else, had a kid and moved 2000 miles away. Then she shows up out of the blue, tries to get him to father her kid (pure manipulation if you ask me) then cries to his widow over and over about how much she LOVE LOVE LOVED him after seeing him 3x for 5 minutes each after a dozen years.
Connor. Yeah right. The gorgeous best friend, total player, leaps on Clara a week after the accident. Because baby weight is irresistible. She hadn't given birth 2 weeks prior. And why was he such a douche? Your best friend has money trouble and laid you off. Try being supportive and not a jerk for no reason.
All in all, too many red herrings that didn't pan out (Theo beat the crap out of nick in front of maisie and what?!? She never mentions it? Just "bad man" about the accident which had nothing to do with the accident?). I can't find it in my heart to give Mary Kubica one star so she gets 2
Unfortunately for the reader, the characters are incredibly unlikable...from the bratty 4 year old daughter, to the husband's narcissistic best friend, to the pathetic excuse of a wife and mother, and the lying husband.
I found myself wanting to scream at Clara and tell her to discipline her daughter and give a single hoot about her infant son. Clara's character was ALL OVER THE PLACE. Trying to solve the cause of her husband's death, she comes across as a small child, blaming anybody and everybody.
The twists weren't twists. It was all obvious. Even worse, when the book ends, there are still several unanswered questions, which I HATE.
If you're looking for an action-packed suspense novel...this isn't it.
It's a train wreck. By far, the worst Kubica novel I've read.
