Lisa Scottoline does it again in this tale of guilt and deception with a cast of characters who are anything but innocent. Allie Garvey remembers the day twenty years ago that changed her life forever. It was the day that something happened that could not be unseen or forgotten. She and her friends were in the woods nearby and found a gun. And then there was an accident. This horrible night has haunted Allie every day of her life and when she goes back home to investigate what really could have happened, she finds out that things aren’t real, and have never really been, as they seem. Meeting up with past friends, Sasha and Julian, after their friend David’s funeral, she confronts her friends about what happened that night in the woods. They speculate but then change the subject, brushing it off. This book is full of suspenseful moments. I absolutely loved every minute of it. The pace was fast but kept my eyes wide open wondering what would happen to each of the characters. If you’re looking for a whirlwind of a ride, this is the book to pick up next.
After editing at City Book Review for a few years, I took up the duties of editorial assistant, which include assigning books for review, posting reviews to our various sites, and nagging reviewers for things. In my non-nagging time, I’m a gamer, artist, writer, and notorious black thumb/bane of plants. My answer to every book-related question: read Octavia Butler.
