I often find that books this wildly touted as wonderful across all social media platforms, do not live up to their hype. This debut thriller however, is just as riveting, suspenseful and intense as it is purported to be. It is very cinematic, in the genre of Hitchcock film noir, reminiscent particularly of Rear Window, and I found myself picturing scenes in black and white as I read. An unreliable narrator, faulty memories, alcoholism, and agoraphobia all contribute to intensifying a dark and twisty plot. This one is well worth a read for those who enjoyed The Woman in Cabin Ten, In a Dark, Dark Woods and Gone Girl.
