Title: The Breakdown
Author: B. A. Paris
Synopsis (from bn.com):
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. It was on the winding rural road, in the middle of a downpour, and a woman was 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, and she probably would have been hurt herself if she’d stopped. Not only that, her husband would be furious if he knew she’d broken her promise not to take that shortcut home.
But since then, she’s been forgetting every little thing. Where she left the car; if she took her pills; even the alarm code.
The only thing she can’t forget is that woman, the woman she might have saved, and the terrible nagging guilt.
And the silent calls she’s receiving, or the feeling that someone’s watching her…
You won’t be able to put down B. A. Paris’s The Breakdown, the next chilling, propulsive novel from the New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of Behind Closed Doors.
My thoughts: The “Buy 2 Get One Free” Psychological Thriller Bay at my local Barnes & Noble is getting me into a lot of book buying trouble recently! Phew.
I saw this title on in that bay, saw that it was by the same author as Behind Closed Door (Amazing read, get your hands on it now!) and knew I had to give it a try. I was most definitely not disappointed.
I thought this was an amazing read! Fast-paced, psychological thriller that I literally couldn’t put down, finished it in one day – no doubt!
B.A Paris is a master at seriously playing with the reader’s mind and own sanity while reading her books. About a quarter of the way through the book it was messing with my mind, half way through I was pretty sure I was the one who was losing my mind, and by the end I was just plain . . . “no way, are you kidding me?, no way” talking to the book!
I must admit some of it I did have a bit figured out about half way through given it’s rather predictable, but the way it is written worked great for me!
I was in a bit of a reading slump and this most definitely pulled me out.
Great read, fast-paced thriller . . . you won’t be disappointed.
