Publisher's Summary

A brilliantly conceived, deeply unsettling psychological thriller - already an international sensation - about a woman haunted by secrets, the consuming desire for revenge, and the terrible price we pay when we try to hide the truth.
Finding a mysterious novel at her bedside plunges documentary filmmaker Catherine Ravenscroft into a living nightmare. Though ostensibly fiction, The Perfect Stranger recreates in vivid, unmistakable detail the terrible day she became hostage to a dark secret, a secret that only one other person knew - and that person is dead.
Now that the past is catching up with her, Catherine's world is falling apart. Her only hope is to confront what really happened on that awful day - even if the shocking truth might destroy her.

Dilemma could have been solved in 30 seconds

I listened to this all the way through and enjoyed it, but it has real flaws. The pacing just does not match the mystery reveals, and diminishes them instead of heightening anticipation.For example, a long time is spent on one character's rambling hatred and search for the other and it just adds nothing. As the blurb states, the main character has a secret that someone else is writing about, and like any good secret, she wants to keep it hidden. But she inexplicably continues to do so, even when it is obviously against her best interests. The secret is key to the plot and the author keeps trying to justify her reticence, but it just doesn't make sense. No reasonable person would behave this way, and to me it made the entire book just seem dumb.

There are many good things about this book, but it needed a brutal editing to make the interesting characters, the small reveals, and the mystery itself into a thriller.

Great book on tape. Engrossing and beautifully and convincingly read. Compelling plot. I disagree with a reviewer who said characters were hard to relate to. I found Catherine to be very sympathetic.
