The lowdown from Goodreads
Published June 27, 2017
Clara Solberg’s world shatters when her husband and their four-year-old daughter are in a car crash, killing Nick while Maisie is remarkably unharmed. The crash is ruled an accident…until the coming days, when Maisie starts having night terrors that make Clara question what really happened on that fateful afternoon.
Tormented by grief and her obsession that Nick’s death was far more than just an accident, Clara is plunged into a desperate hunt for the truth. Who would have wanted Nick dead? And, more important, why? Clara will stop at nothing to find out—and the truth is only the beginning of this twisted tale of secrets and deceit.
Told in the alternating perspectives of Clara’s investigation and Nick’s last months leading up to the crash, master of suspense Mary Kubica weaves her most chilling thriller to date—one that explores the dark recesses of a mind plagued by grief and shows that some secrets might be better left buried.
Oh, y’all. I burned through this book in one day. I expected it to be good, but there were moments that Mary made me so stressed & uncomfortable that I wanted to take a break from reading, but I couldn’t put the book down. Poor Clara has a newborn baby, her husband is dead, her daughter is saying things that make her question what really happened during the car accident & she starts to spiral. She’s got some shady ass neighbors, (who doesn’t?) that complicate the story & the more she learns about Nick’s last days the less she trusts him & herself.
When the book description states that Mary weaves a chilling story together, that’s the truth. There are so many pieces of the plot that are spun together so perfectly that it creates a stellar experience for the reader. If you’re into thrillers, or Really want a great mystery that messes with your mind & makes you sweat, then you’ve got to pick up Every Last Lie.
