that will confuse and possibly drive you mad Everyone has a motive will confuse and possibly drive you mad Everyone has a motive who would you believeI don t think I ve ver seen a detectivejournalist pairing and that s what intrigued me when I read the blurb Jack and Anna have their fair share of shortcomings which make them liable and I held my distrust towards themThere s not a single moment wasted in this book I was drawn to the brutal murders as much as I was to all the short bursts of flashbacks from Anna s tragic past They re so horrid it s best you keep so horrid it s best you keep mind very triggering subject matter you can think ofThe story becomes complex twisted and freaky overtime Add to that the small town setting surrounded by dark creepy woods the feeling of urgency to get to the bottom of things the constant second guessing and the shocking nding Gah you won t be able to put it downIf you like this book try these next The Kind Worth Killing Jar of Hearts I am so bored that I am actually jealous of Rachel for getting killedDNF at 39% This is going to be a super short review because you need to just go into this one blind and let it take you on a wild ride If you like me really disliked the author s previous novel please know that this one is MUCH on par with her first book If you njoy audiobooks I cannot recommend that format for this book highly nough The narrators are fantastic including a mysterious third voice that becomes revealed toward the nd Content warnings for sexual assault and grooming but overall not as gory as many other thrillers today Many thanks to the publisher for providing my review copy This is my first audio book from NetGalley Shelf Twenty years ago I listened to an audio book in my truck and then listened to the nonfiction How Not to Diet recently so I m a very novice audiobook listener I had some difficulty with the app because it didn t start with the first chapter and then skipped chapters I tried to go back and listen to anything I missed but the glitch made for a choppy listening xperience For this reason I would have very much preferred reading the book but thus far have not been able to get my hands on the digital version Still I certainly got the gist of things and njoyed the story The book is chock full of unlikeable characters and almost very one of them could be a red herring for the murderer until they weren t anynot telling why though We have three narrators and nobody is reliable whether because they outright lie or because the truth is hard to face One narrator is her Anna Andrews a newsreaderreporter another is him Jack Harper Anna s detective x husband and the third narrator is the murderer In the audio version the murderer s voice is distorted so we don t know if it is a male or female leaving us not knowing if the murderer is him her or anyone lse The book starts right before the first murder and then things happen fast with bodies piling up Anna is sent to report on the murdermurders and Jack is the lead investigator and uickly also a suspect in the murders Is Jack guilty or is someone setting him up We just don t know because we can t be sure who is telling us the truth and who is lying to us as the book progresses I might go back and read the printed version of the book at some time since I think I d bet a better idea of things by reading the book in order rather than getting the audio chapters out of order as happened to me with my first use of this new app Warning animal abusePublished July 28th 2020Thank you to Macmillan Audio and NetGalley for this ARC 25 STARSI m not sure I read the same book that so many others loved I njoyed her debut novel but felt this one had too many coincidences in the plot I loved the way the author told the story with the hisher narrative although at times it confused me the A Certain Justice (Adam Dalgliesh, ending twist The back and forth kept me guessing and putting pieces together I just never became invested in the characters who were all very unlikable andven despicable in my opinionI would say it was pacy but I didn t care for the shockers along the way The final twist was the breaking point because it was too over the top and unbelievableIt is twisted outrageous and bizarre which can work but in this case not for me I had many many issues including view spoilerthe cat abuseThanks to NG and the publisher for my advanced copy OUT on July 28 2020 hide spoiler.
