Riley is known for his mystery novel, Final Girls and this one, just like his debut, is sure to keep you hooked.

I can’t believe I’ve never read a Riley Sager book before because this was outstanding. I quite literally read it in a day because the writing was so thrilling and so well written there was no way I was putting it down for even a second.

I loved the premise and how history repeated itself. I was on the edge of my seat the entire time to see if they would be found and to see what other secrets would be uncovered.

I love when a thriller doesn’t give all it’s secrets away all at once, and this did just that. Right until the last page I was still being shocked at the revelations that were happening, and I couldn’t trust anyone.

Emma was such a great main character and I liked how she was flawed, but also completely human. I could relate to her and how the past events haunted her, it was so well written.

I am still in shock after that ending. It was something I’d never thought of before, and was honestly so unbelievably clever. Only the best authors leave me speechless. and Riley is definitely one of those.

If he is not on your TBR – he should be!

  1. YES. That ENDING. That was the most unexpected twist I’ve read in a Thriller. I thought the writing flowed so well and I liked the protagonist. You’re so right! I felt like no one could could be trusted. Everyone felt unreliable.
    I haven’t read Final Girls though! I hear it’s a little more on the “horror” side and I’m too chicken, haha
