Publisher's Summary

From New York Times best-selling author and master of suspense Lisa Unger comes an addictive psychological thriller about a woman on the hunt for her husband’s killer

What if the nightmares are actually memories?

It’s been a year since Poppy’s husband, Jack, was brutally murdered during his morning run through Manhattan’s Riverside Park. In the immediate aftermath, Poppy spiraled into an oblivion of grief, disappearing for several days only to turn up ragged and confused wearing a tight red dress she didn’t recognize. What happened to Poppy during those lost days? And more importantly, what happened to Jack?

The case was never solved, and Poppy has finally begun to move on. But those lost days have never stopped haunting her. Poppy starts having nightmares and blackouts - there are periods of time she can’t remember, and she’s unable to tell the difference between what is real and what she’s imagining. When she begins to sense that someone is following her, Poppy is plunged into a game of cat and mouse, determined to unravel the mystery around her husband’s death. But can she handle the truth about what really happened?

Strange Book

This book was unusual for Lisa Unger, all written in the first person but travelling backwards and forwards in time which was a little confusing at times. The narrator, Vivienne Leheny, did an excellent job and I couldn't imagine any other narrator doing such a splendid job as she did. She brought the book to life and it needed to be told in her voice. Without this great narration the story could have been quite ordinary and somewhat disjointed. Unlike other listeners I thought the ending was quite good.

Usually cannot but an Unger book down but...

I struggled to finish. This just couldn't get off the ground. The main character was annoying.

1st big miss for me from Lisa Unger

She is one of my favorite authors, I have read/listened to every book of hers except for the last two under Miscione. This one was a STRUGGLE for me to get through. I kept waiting for something to happen. I feel like it just drug on and on. Not giving up on her, but this one- just wasn't for me!

Definitely not a suspense novel

I think the book summary was incredibly misleading. This wasn’t a book of suspense. If you enjoy novels about a woman’s emotional journey, this is for you. If you’re looking for a suspense or mystery novel, this is definitely not what you’re looking for. The first 10 hours consisted of Poppy grieving, described in hundreds of ways. It became quite monotonous. I thought about stopping after about 5 hours but I really wanted to see where the suspense was. The mystery story only took about 2 hours, maybe from hour 10-12. Then the final hour was how she’s finally healing.

Great thriller!

I love Lisa Ungers books! She never disappoints. This was a good story and kept you guessing till the end. It was just a little too long. I read and back and forth which made it to faster.

Great book but....

I really enjoyed this book but the psychological parts got a little hard to follow & too detailed, especially as she went back & forth in time. Could have trimmed at least an hour+ without the redundancy...but would still recommend this book.

Too long to get to the good part!

There was far too much meaningless dialogue. I listened for 11 hours before it began to go somewhere. The story could have been told in half the time but still wouldn’t have been that great a story.

One of the worst books I’ve ever listened to

The book was awful. It just rambled .was on and on with no real clues or pieces to put together. So bad it makes it hard to write a review. The end/climax doesn’t exist. It’s like even the author just got voted and suddenly decided to reveal what happened and call it a day.
