Staff Reviews

Amber Reynolds is a radio presenter who is in a coma at the beginning of the novel. We are privy to her thoughts, as well as her diary when she was a child, and the events leading up to the event that placed her in the hospital. I assumed that this was the latest in a slew of books vying to be the latest Girl on the Train. However, this thriller definitely elevates the genre. The story is certainly gripping, and the narrative cleverly constructed. My inner Nancy Drew was quite disappointed not to be able to figure out the twist before it occurred, creating a compulsive desire to find out WHAT HAPPENS. A rapid-paced and exciting read!

— Sharon K. Nagel


"Boldly plotted, tightly knotted--a provocative true-or-false thriller that deepens and darkens to its ink-black finale. Marvelous." --AJ Finn, author of The Woman in the Window

My name is Amber Reynolds. There are three things you should know about me:
1. I'm in a coma.
2. My husband doesn't love me anymore.
3. Sometimes I lie.

Amber wakes up in a hospital. She can't move. She can't speak. She can't open her eyes. She can hear everyone around her, but they have no idea. Amber doesn't remember what happened, but she has a suspicion her husband had something to do with it. Alternating between her paralyzed present, the week before her accident, and a series of childhood diaries from twenty years ago, this brilliant psychological thriller asks: Is something really a lie if you believe it's the truth?
