My rating: 5 of 5 stars

“Unrelenting” according to the blurb from Sue Grafton on the cover; I agree 100% I absolutely devoured this non-stop suspense thriller. Every page brought a new twist. Detective Rasbach is on the right track, but the track keeps changing. You’ll have to hold your head with both hands to keep it from spinning. There’s a confession. There’s a murder. Neither of those bring a resolution to the mystery.

Baby Cora is kidnapped while her parents are next door. All the character have flaws, we find out, but does that make them kidnappers? Both parents left Cora alone. Anne had too much to drink. Marco flirted with the sexy neighbor outside on the porch. The babysitter canceled at the last minute, but she used to fall asleep with her earbuds in. Would she have even been able to stop the kidnapper? Then we find that Marco and Anne both have secrets they’ve been keeping from each other.

This book has all the best qualities of Gone Girl and The Girl on the Train. Will Cora be found alive or dead? Will she be found at all? You won’t find out until the very end.
