One of my favorite things in a thriller is a well executed game of cat and mouse and this book delivers. Lily is a news reporter, single mother and her sister went missing when she was a child. She feels she is always under scrutiny and must remain perfect in the public’s eye. Greer, her assistant, feels underappreciated and is trying to show Lily this. Mr. Smith is feeding terrific stories to Lily, but wants to remain anonymous.
As the plot unfolds, the book is narrated from Lily and Greer in the present, and Lily’s missing sister before she went missing in the past. This seems to be the hot trend of the year and in this book it is easy to follow as all the chapters are labeled with the narrator.
While I am not a huge fan of a lot of the book’s characters, I was in love with Lily’s daughter Rowen. She is smart and very entertaining. I love how she is able to talk her way into things, but still has all the qualities you’d expect in a child. And I feel you don’t necessarily need to like every character in the book if they or the storyline are compelling enough and you want to know more about them. I am analytical by nature and was able to catch on to some, but not all, of the twists in the book.
If you are looking for a good cat and mouse game, you should enjoy this book.
