Okay, it looks like there probably won't be any incest, but the current developments are still pretty gross. Laurence

has decided that he's in love with Karen, the sister of Annie, the woman Laurence's dad (and his mother, although he doesn't know that yet) killed.

(spoiler show)

Is there going to be incest in this? I hope not. Lydia is disturbingly obsessed with her son.

The number of people Lydia has "accidentally" killed is now up to two. She's really big on insisting that she totally didn't mean it, and she just went a bit too far, blah blah. I'm a bit surprised we're not up to three, but I imagine that the one person who died of natural causes would have eventually ended up on the list if the stress hadn't done him in first.

This is the most boring "thriller." Laurence and Karen have yet to meet, and I'm not sure I even want the meeting to happen. I used to feel sympathy for Laurence, but I now suspect he's about as awful as his mother. He fantasizes about finding and saving Annie and then having sex with her. I wonder if he'd still fantasize about her if he knew she was dead. Maybe. ::shudder::

My pile of conference ARCs makes me feel guilty. At least this book has only been out for a few days. I've had some of my ARCs for a few years and still haven't read them.

 

So far we have three POVs: Lydia, Karen, and Laurence. Lydia is the wife of Andrew, a judge, and has been wealthy her whole life. Until now, anyway. Andrew blew it, and now they have a mountain of debt that they're desperate to hide. They met up with a prostitute named Annie for reasons that have yet to be revealed (something to do with money). They totally didn't intend to kill her but, well, Andrew choked her and Lydia finished her off.

 

Karen is Annie's sister, the "good" sister. She was supposed to meet up with Annie, but Annie never showed. This wasn't unusual, so it took Karen a bit to start to worry about her.

 

Laurence is Lydia's son, her pride and joy. He's 17 but, to me at least, reads younger. He's bullied at school because of his weight. He knows his dad has lied to the police but he doesn't know why.

 

We'll see how this goes. I don't read thrillers much, but I'm in the mood for one right now.
