The Breakdown

Named One of the Most Anticipated Thriller Novels Of 2017 by Bustle!


 If you can’t trust yourself, who can you trust?

 Cass is having a hard time since the night she saw the car in the woods, on the winding rural road, in the middle of a downpour, with the woman sitting inside—the woman who was killed. She’s been trying to put the crime out of her mind; what could she have done, really? It’s a dangerous road to be on in the middle of a storm. Her husband would be furious if he knew she’d broken her promise not to take that shortcut home. And she probably would only have been hurt herself if she’d stopped.

 But since then, she’s been forgetting every little thing: where she left the car, if she took her pills, the alarm code, why she ordered a pram when she doesn’t have a baby.

 The only thing she can’t forget is that woman, the woman she might have saved, and the terrible nagging guilt.

 Or the silent calls she’s receiving, or the feeling that someone’s watching her…

 You won’t be able to put down B. A. Paris’s The Breakdown, the next chilling, propulsive novel from the New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of Behind Closed Doors.

B. A. Paris turned me into a huge fan of hers with Behind Closed Doors so when the opportunity came up to review this I thought my birthday had come early and she did not disappoint. Her plot is involved, well-written, and extremely clever; once you start reading this you’ll see it just never lets you go until the end. Her story line will have you on the edge of your seat as the fear of what is to come will keep you glued to the pages.

 She writes multifaceted characters so intriguing that just when you know you figured out who the villain is that is when you are most wrong. There is just something intense and haunting about this book that will creep you out to the core.

 Her fast pace, short chapters, and the emotional impact from the mental breakdown (hence the title) add up to a winning combination to make one hell of a thrilling ride you won’t want to miss. You really need to read this and if you haven’t read Behind Closed Doors it’s a MUST!!!

 Thank you to Netgalley and St. Martin’s Press for allowing me to review this book.
