  • Crazy Woo Woo

    Scandal, Suspense and a Twisted Mystery!! James Cahill is a man ho plain and simple. I really love this author but sometimes there are so many characters it’s confusing. Lots of cray cray obsessive woman. There is always a creepy atmosphere that keeps you on edge in every book. The second half of the fly’s by it’s so good. I really like Detective Rivers and his ability to touch items of the victims and here there thoughts. This is something new for this author and I love it. So Megan had planned to disappear, at least in those moments when he’d caught a glimpse into her head. Not exactly reliable information, though—gained from a vision while holding a discarded bit of jewelry.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • ONE OF THE BEST PSYCHOLOGICAL THRILLERS THIS YEAR

    Something important to take into account is that this story isn’t told in chronological order. James Cahill wakes up in the hospital with a severe concussion and memory loss. His girlfriend is missing. Little by little they piece together that they had a massive fight about his infidelity and that she stormed off and called her sister to tell that she was on her way there. She never arrived there. James, who’s known for his wandering eye is the first and main suspect but the timeline doesn’t add up. The reader knows that Jessica left the house and was taken at gunpoint some time along the road. We also know that a woman (we assume she’s Megan) is locked up inside a tiny house by someone she used to love. The gender of the captor is very skilfully avoided but I had an inkling that she’s a woman. The only woman that Megan is close to is her sister Rebecca who used to be James’ girlfriend prior to her. Rebecca has turned up in the small town with the idea that James is behind her sister’s disappearance. But Megan also has a history of disappearing after arguments to punish her boyfriend. So can it be mere drama? There’s also the fact that James isn’t just hot, handsome and charming but he’s also a very wealthy young man and has much more coming in the future. He’s a true chick magnet and some women seem to be willing to kill for what they claim is theirs. And there are plenty of women who have an eye on him, some of them are weirder than others. Detective Rivers who’s leading the investigation has a weird 6th sense when he touches objects belonging to suspects and victims. A useful trait that he has to hide from colleagues and superiors. His partner Mendoza notices his kleptomaniac tendency for items belonging to victims/witnesses. Will she tell on him? Tiny houses must be really hot at the moment because this is the second book this summer that features them. I vouch that if you lived in a bedsit for 10 years, you appreciate the luxury of space a lot more. I seriously doubt that the rich people that purchase such a ‘house on wheels’ (what’s the difference with a camper or RV?) will last very long if they have to live there 24/7 and I’m sure most of them end up being a holiday luxury. The most positive thing about those cramped spaces is that you can’t collect too much clutter and have to be very selective in what you keep and what not. Hey, give me one of those and I won’t complain, though. I must confess that there aren’t many likeable and sympathetic characters in this story. James is an arrogant and immoral rich man who doesn’t think twice about using and dumping women. The women are controlling, selfish, money-chasing, and jealous. Rebecca and detective Rivers are the most pleasant and relatable characters. James seems to have a change of heart towards the end of the book but the question is how long that will last. But not being a nice person doesn’t indicate that you’re a murderer. This is one of the great books of 2020. It’s suspense from start to end. Literally everybody can be the culprit. You can’t be certain that the women are genuine when they tell their version of events. All of them have reasons to hurt Megan or to have her disappear. But when she screamed that James would never see her again, could she be alluding on an intentional disappearance like she pulled off in the past? When all things come together near the end, everything turns out even different from everything I imagined. I can’t stress enough how good and intense this psychological thriller is. Lisa Jackson more than deserves her fame. Really everybody is a suspect in this story. And when someone is cleared, a bit further along something else turns up and that augments the suspicion all over again. I’ll definitely read more by her. The end is ambiguous as well. There’s a large opening for a sequel somewhere in the future. Being caught doesn’t mean the end of an obsession. But as well, I have the feeling that detective Rivers’ story isn’t finished. He’s got all the qualities needed to carry his own series. As I found out just now, this book is the 3rd in the series surrounding the Cahill family; so that sequel will no doubt happen. As there were a few things that referred to a tumultuous past, I should have known but it didn’t make a difference for my understanding of this book. If they’re the same quality as this one, it’s a shame to have missed them. I thank Netgalley and Kensington Books for the free ARC they provided me with and this is my honest, unbiased review of it;

  • YOU BETRAYED ME

    Spine chilling, mind boggling and rivoting novel. The reader is captured within the suspense from the first chapter to the last page. Sure hope there is a sequel to this book.
