Max, a wealthy developer, is murdered and his newly-wed wife, Alissa, gets out of her bath and walks in on the murder. She escapes by locking herself in a bathroom and escaping out a window, running naked to a neighbor’s home. Alissa is beautiful, sweet and gentle according to everyone that knows her so the police immediately take her off the suspect list, except Detective Carter. Detective Carter senses something is not as it seems with Alissa and Max based on his gut instinct as a experienced detective but as he digs everything seems to point at Alissa’s ex-boyfriend, Russell, who still had not gotten over Alissa after 3 years of being broken up and gate-crashed the wedding reception trying to get her back. Even after Russell is arrested, Detective Carter is still looking for something that will rid him of the suspicion that they did not arrest the right person. This book has you guessing to the end on who actually murdered Max. There are actually chapters where the murder is talking to you but you have no idea who it is. A great mystery and psychological thriller I would recommend to anyone into these genres.
I gave this book a 4 out of 5 stars on Goodreads.
I received an advanced readers copy of this book from NetGalley for review consideration.
