A chiunque ogni tanto capita di non ricordare dove siano le chiavi di casa o dove ha parcheggiato la macchina. Nessuno farebbe caso a simili sciocchezze. Per Cass Anderson, invece, è diverso. Ogni minimo deragliamento della memoria potrebbe essere un sintomo preciso: demenza precoce, la malattia che ha colpito la madre diversi anni prima. Ecco perché, adesso, Cass sta vivendo un incubo. Una sera di pioggia, tornando a casa, supera un’auto ferma sul ciglio della strada. All’interno c’è una donna, ma lei non si ferma ad aiutarla. Poi la mattina seguente scopre dai telegiornali che quella donna è stata assassinata. Esattamente dove lei l’aveva incrociata. E, subito, ai sensi di colpa si aggiunge l’angoscia di aver visto qualcosa che non avrebbe dovuto vedere. Come spiegare le telefonate mute che ha cominciato a ricevere proprio da quella mattina, se non come una velata minaccia? E perché anche quando è in casa ha così spesso la sensazione di essere osservata?

Last year, I read and enjoyed Paris's Behind Closed Doors . I made it clear in my review that it wasn't a clever, twisty thriller of the Gone Girl -variety. In fact, the book quickly gave up all its secrets and was more about what happened to the characters after that. And yet, it was very compelling. Leggi tutto
*4.5 Stars…because I would not, COULD NOT, put this down! There are no profound reasons as to why this book was so much fun for me. It certainly doesn't shatter any psychological-thriller molds, and to be quite honest, there wasn't much shock value in its pages. There were some seemingly mundane mome Leggi tutto

I loved Behind Closed Doors so I couldn't wait to see what B.A Paris had in store for me this time. "If you can't trust yourself, who can you trust?" The beginni Leggi tutto

Let me preface my review by saying, I was not one of those readers that was over the moon for this author’s first book, Behind Closed Doors . While I liked the characters, especially memorable Millie, and found myself engrossed in the storyline, the execution didn’t wow me; in fact, I felt there was Leggi tutto

I know, I'm picky. But, c'mon people! This book features the most irritating, frustratingly whiney main character in all of the domestic suspense books I've ever read. Not to mention she's so gullible and trusting of her smart ass husband. I just couldn't stand it any more. And the plot? B-O-R-I-N-G. Leggi tutto
