Summary

For a woman obsessed and a killer in her shadow, remembering the past becomes a mind game in a novel of psychological suspense by New York Times bestselling author Mary Burton.

Twin sisters Marisa and Clare Stockton were sixteen when Clare’s body was found in Virginia’s James River. No arrests were made. Fourteen years later, Marisa’s friends and dedicated career as a photographer help her to cope with the open wound of the past. But Marisa still feels the hurt—and the unsolved murder isn’t the only thing haunting her.

A recent car crash has erased ten days of Marisa’s memories—a black hole leading up to the accident that’s left her disoriented. Every text and phone call from that crucial missing time has vanished, along with her phone. A photograph she took of the river has disappeared. A new neighbor Marisa believes she knows introduces himself as if he were a stranger. And there’s the growing fear that her near-fatal accident was no accident at all. As dreams of Clare and nightmares of the crash begin to converge, so do two disturbing puzzles fourteen years apart.

Putting the pieces together could be fatal. As she struggles to remember everything, Marisa closes in on a killer—without realizing that he’s already closed in on her.

Absolutely stunning!

I absolutely love this author. I am an avid reader (I read every day without fail) and I soon run out of good material in my genre (mystery, suspense, police procedural with good character development). This is as always a very good enjoyable plot, enjoyable protagonist who end up solving her mystery.
I cannot recommend her books highly enough, any of her books actually, I am yet to be disappointed by one :)

this is a really excellent read.

I have read all of this authors books in her thriller series but I really think that this is the best she has ever written. I enjoyed the story so much and the characters I could imagine so clearly in my mind. I would recommend this book to any of fans of Karen Rose.

Slow Paced. Twisty ending

- Marisa was the main character on this story. Had a twin sister (Clare ) who died 14 years later until she needed to find a missing piece for her peace. Marisa is trying to be sober after a long addiction and also a photographer.
- They had a sister in a mother image Brit, who from the young age taking care of them as their mother died from overdose . Brit has a boyfriend David.
- also, I find it quite similar to ‘you’ (joe) as their is part of stalking and narrating and following the main character .
- also there is well dedicated police detective richards who is retiring but yet again it’s been there from 14 years ago.
- now the story was quite slow paced,but every chapter was described and written neatly. More of drama than thriller,you will feel the most thriller part on the end with a very twisty ending.
All in all, it was a great read. Light and great for someone starting with mystery and thriller:)


⭐️ Thankyou #netgalley #maryburton #montlakepublisher for the arc copy of this book for a honest review.

Great twisty story

Love Mary’s stories around Richmond. Great book, well narrated - even though I am not usually a fan of these multi-speaker narrations.
