Publisher's Summary

How far can you push an obsession before paying the ultimate price?

Sometimes what you don’t know can hurt you. In Riley Harper’s case, it’s what she says she can’t remember. Nearly a decade ago, Riley was the suspect in a murder investigation that destroyed her life and drove her into a psychiatric facility. Locked away for years, she was always guilty in the eyes of an unforgiving public.

Now, after being released, all she wants is a fresh start, but the effort stalls when she becomes fixated on her new neighbor’s extravagant life. She can’t stop watching Samantha Light. And it’s curiously satisfying.

For now, at least.

Because there’s one more thing Riley doesn’t know. And this time it may not just hurt her - it could kill her.

In this intense psychological thriller from Andrew E. Kaufman, author of Twisted, a woman besieged by her past spins deeper into turmoil and down a slope that may lead her to madness.

Definitely a psychological thriller...but

This was a definite psychological thriller but it got a little confusing at times. Some confusion was in a sense intentional and eventually became relevant, but I found it hard to figure out what to focus on. There were essentially only 3 main/active characters the whole time and every single additional character was poorly integrated. I am still not 100% sure on what became of these people and their significance toward the story because they were very remarkable: a detective from the past with a vendetta, and an agoraphobic neighbor that overcomes her fears and ends up being “best friends” with the main character. They just kind of come and go. The narrator was a little over the top with melodramatics; at first she really embodied the emotions, then it got a bit much for me — quite a bit of actual screaming and shrieking. But all things considered she was just expressing what the author wrote. As a whole I stayed fairly interested and entertained but it wasn’t cohesive enough for me and left a lot unfinished and unclear. I don’t know if this last sentence I’m about to write is considered a “spoiler”, so read on accordingly....but I found the ending utterly depressing and it’s always a bummer when not only does no one win, but everyone completely loses.

Totally Unexpected

This is the second book by Andrew Kaufman that I have read and BOTH are so good! He definitely has a way of making you feel a certain way about the characters, then boom, there's a twist. One of the best writers with a knack for throwing in a complete curveball. I highly recommend both of his books!

Well written. Horribly predictable characters.

Author clearly has strong writing skills.
Unfortunately it was wasted on miserable characters and a lousy story. Almost didn't finish it and wish that I stopped because the ending was terribly manipulative. Setting up the reader, with a stupid switch, then "she was crazy after all" ending.
Even though it was a free book, it makes me lose interest in fiction writers. Too many cliche phrases and bogus stereotypes.
Folks, wait for the author's next effort.

Ending was confusing

I enjoyed this book, but felt like some of the arguing with her sister about believing her was over the top, especially because I listened to the audible version. I’m still not sure I completely understand the ending!

Intense

I wanted a bit more just to understand a little better. Although there was closure, it felt a bit rushed at the end... Intense for majority of the time but in conclusion, it felt rushed...

Oh. Em. Gee. It's like being there.

This story was great, but the performance was exceptional. You really get the emotional feeling from the story through the performer's voice. I really loved it.
