Emma in the Night by Wendy Walker

This was a book that I managed to get to read thanks to NetGalley. It has been a while since I read a psychological thriller that had more twists than I expected.

It is definitely not for the faint of heart and at least for me a one-time read. But that does not mean that the book was not good. It was a very well written book with arresting characters.

The story starts with the return of Cass who went missing on the same day her sister Emma. She tells the story of the past three years that they had been missing for. Parallelly the forensic psychiatrist who had earlier been assigned to the case has been hung up with this case and is smelling a rat with the revelations that follow.

The narrative swings between these two and we see what unfolds. I did almost finish it is one sitting once the story got going. The only reason is did not give it 4 stars is that I did not feel a satisfaction at the closure of the case. Otherwise it does have the nail-biting quality which defines the genre as well as the twisted minds of the players involved in this elaborate game.
