Mary Kubica’s third thriller does not disappoint. The story is told in alternating chapters by Quinn, whose roommate Esther has mysteriously disappeared, and Alex, who is smitten with the new girl in town. Quinn is torn between fear that something awful has happened to Esther, and the sneaking suspicion that Esther has a dark side, and might be planning to do away with Quinn. Alex is bored with his crappy job washing dishes in a small town café and taking care of his alcoholic father. He dreams of escape and romance, and the pretty girl who has started to frequent his diner. You might think that you have it all figured out, but you would be wrong.— Sharon K. Nagel
