Purchase on Amazon here
Named One of the Most Anticipated Thriller Novels Of 2017 by Bustle!
THE NEW CHILLING, PROPULSIVE NOVEL FROM THE AUTHOR OF THE INSTANT NEW YORK TIMES AND USA TODAY BESTSELLING BEHIND CLOSED DOORS.
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…
Having loved and spent months raving about Behind Closed Doors by B.A. Paris I could barely contain my excitement when The Breakdown appeared on my Kindle. I was however apprehensive as I wasn’t sure if it could live up to the last book.
Was I disappointed? Nope! This book was once again packed full of drama, suspense and incredibly engrossing. We follow Cass who, as the blurb says, is struggling following a drive home when she encountered a woman parked up in a desolate road. The woman has been killed and Cass just can’t shake her fear over what happened, and whether there was anything she could have done to stop it.
This is the start of a journey that will see Cass question everyone and everything, including her sanity! She cannot shake what happened and things only get worse when she starts getting phone calls and a feeling that someone is watching her and out to get her.
The story spirals and along with family and friends Cass’s world starts to crumble, and along with Cass I as a reader started to question how much of what occurs is real, and how much is her imagination. There are twists and turns that had me too-ing and fro-ing with my thoughts, and looking out for any little inklings about what to believe and who to trust.
The Breakdown packed a punch and I sat it almost in one sitting as the writing flows and grabbed me by the collar and dragged me into the whole scenario. It will definitely be a book that people talk about, and will keep you turning pages late into the night.
