Twenty years ago, girls started disappearing and Chloe’s father was arrested as their killer. Now, she’s seemingly moved on with her life working as a clinical psychologist when girls start going missing again. The hallmarks are quite similar to her father and Chloe finds herself enmeshed in the investigation. There are some concerns that Chloe might not be telling us the whole story and she’s suddenly paranoid of everyone in her life. Is it a copycat or something more sinister and will she survive the search for the new killer?
The challenge with modern thrillers is that even if they are well written, if you figure it out right away – it becomes a bit of a slog to read to confirm your suspicions. This one had a million red herrings along the way, which I usually like but it was so obvious to me who the real baddie was that it was just annoying. So for me ratings-wise this one is going to end up middle of the road. I enjoyed the story although it relied on a lot of thriller tropes and I was able to pinpoint the killer as soon as they showed up (trying not to spoiler here but it was early). ⭐️⭐️⭐
Do you rate thrillers based on how quickly you figure it out?
