How well do you really know your best friend?
Kat Grant and Alice Campbell have a friendship forged in shared confidences and long lunches lubricated by expensive wine. Though they’re very different women—the artsy socialite and the struggling suburbanite—they’re each other’s rocks. But even rocks crumble under pressure. Like when Kat’s financier husband, Howard, plunges to his death from the second-floor balcony of their South Florida mansion.
Howard was a jerk, a drunk, a bully and, police say, a murder victim. The questions begin piling up. Like why Kat has suddenly gone dark: no calls, no texts and no chance her wealthy family will let Alice see her. Why investigators are looking so hard in Alice’s direction. Who stands to get hurt next. And who is the cool liar—the masterful manipulator behind it all. (From Goodreads)
Thank you to Mira Books/Book Clubbish for sending me a free ARC of this book, in exchange of an honest review.
Good Lord what an amazing ride this was. The ending absolutely blew my mind, I could not believe it as I was reading it. This was a gripping read from the first page to the last. Although it seems like it’s going to be predictable, It is anything but.
Both Kat and Alice were so remarkably written, you cannot help but love them both, even when Kat goes dark, you’re still rooting for her. And in the same breath you’re shaking your head at Alice for being a doormat to Kat.
This is more than just a story of being wealthy, and having your own set of laws, this book kind of shows what wealth, and the power to get away with anything, and everything does to a person. The kind of power where they truly believe they are doing no wrong, they are entitled to what they want. It’s a fascinating topic to read about. The rich and the powerful, and everyone else below them. Then mix in a sociopath and watch the magic happen!
I cannot wait to read more Margot Hunt, if this book was any indication of the talent she has, than sign me up as a fan for life, because I know already this will be a top read of 2018.
