She always trusted her husband.
“The bad man, Daddy. The bad man is after us.”
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.
New York Times bestselling author of THE GOOD GIRL, Mary Kubica is back with another exhilarating thriller as a widow’s pursuit of the truth leads her to the darkest corners of the psyche.
My Review: Firstly I absolutely LOVED “The Good Girl” and often recommend it, so I was absolutely delighted when the publishers sent me an ARC of Every Last Lie in the post last week and settled in the knowledge that this author ALWAYS delivers a gripping thriller.
This story is about Clara, a young mother of a 4 year old daughter Maisie and a 4 day old son Felix and how her world falls apart when her husband Nick is killed in a car accident. However it appears that the nightmare has only just begun as Clara begins to undercover things about her husband she didn’t know and begins to suspect something far more sinister than a tragic car accident.
With alternative chapters told from Clara in the present, grieving and trying to keep her young family safe, and Nick, in the past, recapping his version of events, there are some real red herrings and twists and turns and several times I had to put the book down and collect my thoughts.
OMFG, my heart didn’t stop beating like a runaway train throughout this book and if you are looking for a fast-paced, knicker-gripping thriller that takes you on more goose chases than a goose-chasing goose chaser then download this book next.!
