Paperback: 413 pages
Genre: Psychological Thriller
From the New York Times bestselling author of The Girl at the Border comes a haunting thriller about one woman’s journey into the painful truths threatening to destroy her.
When Tara Peary’s twin sister Sophie goes missing, Tara dives into New York’s underbelly to find her. Sophie is the one person who’s ever truly understood her, and Tara knows her sister isn’t the only one who needs help.
Tara is also on the run emotionally from her complicated childhood. Her memories are threatening to overwhelm her emotions and derail the hunt for Sophie. A psychotherapist keeps her afloat, but when Tara begins dating her therapist’s young tech-millionaire neighbor, she risks losing the only lifelines she has left.
The more Tara uncovers about her sister’s disappearance and the dark side of the rich elite, the less certain of the truth she becomes. As Tara reaches the center of the mystery, spanning from her childhood home in Georgia to a Southern California beach, she has to decide whether the truth is a price she’s willing to pay.
What’s your longest running favorite trope?
I have loved books about twins since I was a kid and this book was no exception. The author did a great job of weaving the twin connection into the plot.
Thrillers can be hit or miss with me and I really enjoyed this book. This was very much a psychological thriller with an emphasis on the psychological. Archer nailed all the small details and that’s what set this book apart from other thrillers that have fallen flat for me.
The writing, character development, and plot lines kept me from wanting to put the book down. I lost track of the twists and I didn’t see several of them coming which made for a great read.
One note, this book was both thrilling and DARK. It has pretty much any trigger warning you could imagine so please make sure you’re in a good mental space before reading.
If you enjoyed And Then She Was Gone, one of my favorites from 2020, you will most likely enjoy this book. Available February 2nd from your favorite bookseller!
