In this explosive new thriller, #1 New York Times bestselling author Lisa Jackson delves into the deep bond between two sisters and their shared dream that becomes a harrowing nightmare of madness, hatred and jealousy....
Cassie Kramer and her younger sister, Allie, learned the hazards of fame long ago. Together, they'd survived the horror of a crazed fan who nearly killed their mother, former Hollywood actress Jenna Hughes. Still, Cassie moved to L.A., urging Allie to follow. As a team, they'd take the town by storm. But Allie, finally free of small-town Oregon, and just that little bit more beautiful, also proved to be more talented - and driven. Where Cassie got bit parts, Allie rose to stardom. But now her body double has been shot on the set of her latest movie - and Allie is missing.
Police discover that the last call to Allie's phone came from Cassie, though she has no recollection of making it. Instead of looking like a concerned relative, Cassie is starting to look like a suspect - the jealous sister who finally grew sick of playing a supporting role. As the tabloids go into a frenzy, Cassie ends up in a Portland psych ward. Is she just imagining the sinister figure who comes to her bedside, whispering about Allie - a visitor of whom there is no record? Is someone trying to help - or drive her mad?
Convinced she's the only one who can find Allie, Cassie checks herself out of the hospital. But a sudden slew of macabre murders - each victim masked with a likeness of a member of Cassie's family - makes Cassie fear for her safety and her sanity. The only way to end the nightmare is to find out what really happened to Allie. And with each discovery, Cassie realizes that no one can be trusted to keep her safe - least of all herself....

This held my interest and was well performed. Worth my time.
I love mysteries and understand you need several potential culprits, but thought there were too many unnecessary characters in this book.
This was a great book, it took me a while to get through it because when I would start I wouldn't want to stop. towards the end my stomach would be and knots because of the suspense. It was well narrates and definitely well-written. I wanted to Google what happened as I listen but I opt not too. lol. It wasn't too predictable but I was able to figure out the secret of the family. I wasn't able to figure out who the person was though. I would say this book wasn't worth the credit, it's actually worth the money.
I didn't like how Cassia still never completely trusted her instincts, even at the end. Although, she herself, was the most reliable.
Story line was awesome - very creative and messed up as crap, which I demand from the thriller's I engage with.
Two critiques, though. First, the dialogue in some parts was truly wretched. Pulling junk like this - "She will not get a-way with it; not this time!" Please. Pardon while I roll my eyes so hard I'm falling over.
Second, Lisa, homegirl. Lay THE FUH off the word "damned" for crying out loud!! Everything was damned this and damned that. Go to thesaurus.com and FIND ANOTHER WORD!!! Sheesh. And also, don't say damned. Say damn. It may not be grammatically correct, but it also isn't nearly as irritating.
Performance was pretty good, but I didn't like her "boy voice." She made all the men sound like gruffy old grandpas. Don't do that.
The story is all over the place, story line never fulfills or pulls together--
Nothing--not a bad narration, just can't follow the story
Pull it together between venues, characters etc
I just wanted to find out 'who done it' so it would be over. Plot seemed to be the problem. The characters were under developed and all felt like the same person. There is more, but it was such an unremarkable book I won't bother with more of my thoughts on it.
Hard to tell who is 😜. The sister or the sister. Good story tho.
