I am such a fan of the author’s thrillers.  They grab me from the start and I always read them quickly, but this one had a little more for me.  I love that Charlie is autistic and lets us into her world.  I don’t always like the main characters in thrillers, but I liked her instantly when her grandmother described her as a child like that.  In front of her.  Then later her mom was describing things she already knew about herself that she thought no one else would notice because she was such a good pretender.  I just wanted to protect her.  She ends up a suspect in her boss’ murder.  She is fierce, protective and loyal to her friends and courageous as she tries to work out what happened.

Such a likable character at the center of a twisty murder mystery had me not wanting to put this one down.  Seriously if your a fan of thrilelrs, you need to pick this one up.

About the book

Charlie Hudson, an autistic 17-year-old, is determined to leave Sawyer, PA as soon as she graduates high school — in the meantime, she works as many hours as she can at a sandwich shop called The Triple S to save money for college. But when shop owner Clay Cooper — a man who is both respected and feared by many in this economically depressed community — is found dead, each member of his staff becomes a suspect in the perplexing case. Charlie must work to protect herself and her friends, and uncover the danger that may still be at large in their tightknit community.

Best-selling author Wendy Walker returns with another riveting thriller, told through the eyes of an unforgettable protagonist.
