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!

Wow that was messed up

This psychological thriller was unlike any other. I mean how many crazy people can you run into in your life? This is a must read. Once you pick it up you will have to finish it as fast as you can.

Disappointing

I’m a patient person, willing to give stories the time to develop. But this one, as it developed, found me frustrated and annoyed at the main character and the story line. Which eventually led me to figure out the predictable conclusion.

This book is ok for a fun distraction.

I listen to audiobooks while I'm working and this one was fun and a good distraction. The performance was mostly good, but I felt like the one character was purposely speaking way too slow, even though I listen at 2X the speed. It also could have been shorter, some of the scenes felt like they weren't necessary. It ends with a unique twist.

I finished it but it was hard to

This book has too many twists and turns that make no sense even when they are explained at the end. Was hoping it would get better the entire time... it didn’t.

Wow!

Lots of twists and turns. Amazing performance by narrator. Just when I thought I knew what was coming next, wham plot change. If you enjoy a great thriller, you'll find this week worth your time.

Narrator was very distracting.

She had a way of saying “Riley”, that was so shrill, that I would cringe. Her voice, overall, made me think of fingernails scraping on a blackboard! She was so distracting, I had to read book myself to fully understand ending.

hard to finish

Drama over acted. Slow plot. Not much worth writing about. Going to see if it was a freebe from kindle. Hope I didn't pay for.
