This book has all the virtues of other recent thrillers like "Gone Girl" and "The Girl on the Train", but it also features a likable and relatable cast of characters. It is, in other words, a real winner!
Our two major characters are Zoe, a single mother with boyfriend and so-so job, and Kelly, a young cop with a checkered record and a tendency to push the envelop of police rules. Both are people the listener/reader might come across in real life - and we'd like and sympathize with them.
Their lives are soon linked by a bizarre case which threatens the safety of women who commute every day on the same transport lines. Kelly gets an assignment on the police case, and Zoe is a justifiably fearful potential victim. Both women are smart, resourceful, and fully engaged in solving the mystery.
The action moves fast, with the twists and turns which are likely to keep you up late and/or thinking of excuses to drive just a little further or sit in the car in the garage. Sure, there are a couple of places where you ask yourself if there's a bit of implausibility in certain details and coincidences, but the story moves quickly enough that disbelief is easily suspended.
I really liked this tense story line, and the narrator is just about perfect. It's a satisfying thriller/mystery.

Was really looking forward to this after author's first book. Sure, there's twists and mystery to the storyline but I could not get into this. I forced myself to finish and really wish I would've just returned it sooner and got my credit back despite having it on my radar for months.
