If you can’t trust yourself, who can you trust?

Cass is having a hard time since the night she saw the car in the woods, on the winding rural road, in the middle of a downpour, with the woman sitting inside―the woman who was killed. She’s been trying to put the crime out of her mind; what could she have done, really? It’s a dangerous road to be on in the middle of a storm. Her husband would be furious if he knew she’d broken her promise not to take that shortcut home. And she probably would only have been hurt herself if she’d stopped.

But since then, she’s been forgetting every little thing: where she left the car, if she took her pills, the alarm code, why she ordered a pram when she doesn’t have a baby.

The only thing she can’t forget is that woman, the woman she might have saved, and the terrible nagging guilt.

Or the silent calls she’s receiving, or the feeling that someone’s watching her

My Thoughts and Opinion:

If you are a fan of psychological thrillers, then this is an author you need to read! I read BEHIND CLOSED DOORS and could not put it down. And once I read the last page, I was anxiously waiting for this book to become available. Did it compare?

On her way home, Cass takes a shorter route, however, her husband tells her not to. Sher sees a stranded car and pulls over but is a bit ambivalent about helping, especially after the warning from her husband. And then the shocking news the following day, a woman has been murdered on the same road. Was the driver of the car she saw the victim? Should she contact the police? But then, how is she going to look especially since she didn’t help? Then the calls start. An open line but nothing is said. Is this the murderer?

B.A Paris does it again! Another riveting and chilling read! The only negative, I now have to wait for her next book! Highly recommend!
