Publisher's Summary

Named One of the Most Anticipated Thriller Novels of 2017 by Bustle!

The newest propulsive audiobook from the author of New York Times and USA Today instant best seller 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...

You won't be able to hit pause on B. A. Paris' The Breakdown, the next chilling audiobook from the best-selling author of Behind Closed Doors.

BUY BUY BUY! Read review NO SPOILERS

This is the second book by B.A. Paris whose debut was "Behind Closed Doors". I have to say that book was good but it lost my attention at points. But the ending was well worth it.
This new book will have you from the first page. Imagine you have the perfect life and one night driving past a broken down vehicle causes you to start to lose your memory. Like how to work a microwave or dishwasher, items arriving you never ordered but you did.
This book will keep you till the end and the ending won't let you down.
I have been on such a dry spell, must have started 10 books that had high ratings but were not that good. THIS IS THE BEST BOOK OF 2017 HANDS DOWN.

Boring

I hate to give a book a poor review but this book is really boring. I finished it only because I didn't want to completely waste my money. The story is so repetitive. I had the whole thing figured out within the first chapter. I'm going to try the author's other book because it sounds much more interesting but I would not recommend this book.

Another Girl on the Train it isn't!

Average, but Cozy

I quit this a few minutes in, then went back and stayed. It's a *beach read;* what I call an airport pick-up book: not spectacular but it becomes easy on the ears and comfortable. It has that settle in and go along quality that is easy to drift with. The story itself is transparent, easily solved far before the author reveals the facts, but lends itself to pleasantly picturing the events without effort as long as you leave logic in your pocket. Sometimes the perfect book is the one you can pick up, set down, pick up again all without worrying about a book mark.

Extremely predictable

This audiobook was such a disappointment. It was so incredibly predictable and I kept listening in hopes of being wrong but it was transparent from the very beginning. I'm sorry I wasted my credit on this book.

Wanted to love it

I absolutely loved "Behind Closed Doors," and while the narration for this one was equally good, the story was not. Similar build-up, just much less believable or exciting. The build-up was slow and boring. The motives, which were revealed after several painful hours at 1.5x, were cliché and boring. I felt no connection whatsoever to the main character/narrator and was disappointed overall.

Lived It!

If you liked Girl On A Train, you are going to love this story. The narrator was spot on!

Boring

I tried for several hours since it started off very promising and the narration is impeccable. But the protagonist is pathetic with too much self loathing over and over again. Parts of this story are frustrating as opposed to suspenseful. Just couldn't go on.

Oh For Heavens Sake

Oh for Heavens sake..!!
Who didn't know THAT was coming..??
It was SO obvious the MOMENT all of the characters were introduced that I am ashamed of anyone who didn't catch on immediately...!!!
A pathetic sniveling wimp of a woman is NOT what I want to read about...
I want to be introduced to a savvy,
brilliant individual that is NOT a victim nor dependent on other people for her
"Strength ".... revolting
