Publisher's Summary

How much can you trust your closest friend?

Beth Montgomery seems to have the perfect life: a beautiful house in the hills above Los Angeles, a handsome, ambitious husband, and plans of starting a family. So it doesn't occur to her to worry when the news breaks of a quadruple homicide across town, a botched drug deal that leaves an undercover officer among the dead. Beth certainly would never think to tie the murders to the sudden reappearance in her life of wild, sexy Cassie Ogilvy, the estranged best friend she hasn't seen since they were college roommates.

As Cassie confidently settles into Beth's new life, making herself comfortable not only in Beth's guestroom but with her husband as well, it becomes increasingly clear that her old friend has a lot to hide. But it isn't until a shocking late-night phone call, and Cassie's even more startling disappearance, that Beth begins to understand that her world, as she knew it, is gone forever.

Unfurling over the span of three fraught, heart-pounding days, McInnis's masterful suspense debut is fast-paced and diabolically unpredictable - a fresh, surprising, and powerfully smart twist on the traditional thriller.

With a stunning blend of brilliant psychological suspense and hard-hitting police procedural, this explosive thriller has a cast of vivid, well-developed characters, a gripping, taut plot with twists in every chapter, perfectly placed clues, and a shocking, fully satisfying ending. It's one of the best thrillers I've read this year!" (Samantha M. Bailey, author of Woman on the Edge)

Contrived

This crime novel is a fast-paced, plot-driven thriller with minimal character development. It wasn't boring yet it never really engaged me. The twist at the end seemed contrived, but without developed characters I suppose anything can happen.

An Enjoyable Book

I usually like there to be several written reviews before choosing a book, and with only one review at the time I was leery of trying Framed. I’m glad I did and I’m satisfied that I used a credit for a good mystery. The multiple narrators worked well as each chapter is told from a different characters point of view. The story has some points that I found myself saying “why doesn’t she just do this” (no spoilers so I’m not going to say what) and for a while I was thinking I didn’t like the story. Then the plot took a new turn and I was able to overlook my annoyance. I think the writing/plot could have been improved to prevent this but all for all I enjoyed the story and would try another book by this author.

Stylishly cleverly Written Story

No spoilers ! This may not be an original idea but what it IS , is a story that you think you know what is going on but there is enough underneath that you feel like there is a voice in your head telling you something else is happening here. And even then , you think you got it and it's been done before. You don't have it. Because the writer holds you to the last word. Maybe not totally original but very well done!!

Stick With It

Although this book was a bit confusing at the beginning, if you stick with it the story soon comes together and then it is a good ride.The only thing I did not like were the constant descriptions of the character Cassie. We got it after the FIRST time.
I was able to figure out the story but still enjoyed it very much.

Who's framed whom for what?

(As posted in GoodReads)
Such an interesting, complicated, and twisted series of events! All of the characters are so complex, and they all have innumerable secrets. And one goes from character to character trying to decide who did what – if anything. And the title: _Framed_. One is constantly wondering who's framing whom? And what is really happening – or happened? And the reader can't come out liking anyone in particular! Well, maybe Good…
And of course, there are still the outstanding questions at the end…

Loved it

this is my first written review. I love this book. there are basically only 4 characters so the author was able to really get us into the heads of each of them. each character had their own narrator which made it even more special. the book also contained plenty of twists and turns. this book is perfect for a book club discussion

Keeps You Wondering until the Last Chapter 8

Definitely is a different twist on the normal murder who done it. Narration was excellent.
