I’ve heard and seen this book everywhere so I had to read it. Shooting your spouse five times in the face and then, pulling the silent treatment, now that is a good defense. What would cause someone to commit such a crime? I had to know. I didn’t know if I really trusted Alicia throughout the bo...

I read a ton of psychological thrillers, and most fall short of the mark for me. Granted, the continued exposure does mean that it is increasingly harder and harder to "get" me with that required big twist. Then, along comes this debut from Alex Michaelides. The story is a slow build, and in the be...

Do you play chess? I don’t, more of a tic-tac-toe aficionado TBH. But I’ve always admired the ability to think 10 moves ahead when faced with a worthy opponent. Here we have 2 well matched MC’s, each with a plan & motive that may end up being their downfall. Alicia Berenson used to be one half of ...
