REVIEW: Things We Do in the Dark

When comedian, Jimmy Peralta is found dead, his much younger, relatively new fifth wife is charged with his murder. She claims innocence and presses that he has committed suicide. Quickly we learn that she is not who she claims to be. Someone knows who she is and why she’s changed her identity and she’s blackmailing her. She happens to be a woman convicted of another murder serving a long sentence. We learn how these women are connected and exactly what happened to Jimmy.

I liked this story and the pages turned like wildfire but, I wouldn’t say that any of the twists here were unexpected. The “twists” were easily seen and predicted so if you’re looking for a jaw dropper, I don’t think this will give you that. That said, I enjoyed it as a read and would totally recommend it as a pacey beach read. 

Thanks to Netgalley for an advanced copy of this novel. All opinions above are my own.

What’s the last thriller you couldn’t put down?
