An unsettling page-turner of The Girl on the Train variety that will live on in readers’ imaginations
Scriptwriter Renee Knight has found her niche in the thriller and this assured debut holds the reader’s attention throughout. The timing of the suspense and the denouements is judged with surgical accuracy.
Atticus on Disclaimer
This is a good psychological thriller with the ever-popular unreliable narrator, in this case two of them, along with lots of family drama. Sure to appeal to fans of Before I Go to Sleep, by S. J. Watson
