WOWZA! This book sucked me in, chewed me up and spit me out. By the way, I loved every freakin minute of it. Just who is the bad guy in this book? Who is the victim? Who is to be trusted? Who will double cross you? Is there anyone you can trust? Who is a killer? Who will be killed? Oh Lord does this book keep the bodies dropping as a psycho killer keeps killing.

Ted Severson meets an Lily Kinter on a flight. He finds her to be both attractive and intriguing. Over drinks he shares with her that his wife is having an affair and that he would like to kill his wife. Lily’s reaction to this declaration is not as expected -She doesn’t even bat an eye. Lily, without hesitation, asks if she can help. Lily shares a little about her life with Ted but she does leave out some minor (major) details. She has a trouble past which the reader learns more about as the story progresses. They make plans to meet and go their separate ways.

Thus begins the game of Cat and Mouse….but just who is the cat and who is the mouse? I have to say I was shocked when the story turned on it’s head and of course, I did not see that coming.

Once the story turns, more is revealed about Lily’s past and a police investigation begins. One of the officers becomes obsessed with Lily and there is a whole other twist in the works there.

I don’t want to say anymore because I don’t want to give anything away. I went into this book not knowing the twist and I loved the way this book did a 360 on me. What I will say is that this book was a good read. I enjoyed it and highly recommend it to anyone who enjoys mysteries and books with psychological suspense in them.
