Summary

Summary

From New York Times bestselling author and master of suspense Lisa Unger comes an addictive psychological thriller about a woman on the hunt for her husband's killer

What if the nightmares are actually memories?

It's been a year since Poppy's husband, Jack, was brutally murdered during his morning run through Manhattan's Riverside Park. In the immediate aftermath, Poppy spiraled into an oblivion of grief, disappearing for several days only to turn up ragged and confused, wearing a tight red dress she didn't recognize. What happened to Poppy during those lost days? And more importantly, what happened to Jack?

The case was never solved, and Poppy has finally begun to move on. But those lost days have never stopped haunting her. Poppy starts having nightmares and blackouts-there are periods of time she can't remember, and she's unable to tell the difference between what is real and what she's imagining. When she begins to sense that someone is following her, Poppy is plunged into a game of cat and mouse, determined to unravel the mystery around her husband's death. But can she handle the truth about what really happened?

Publisher's Weekly Review

Grief leads to self-destructive behavior in this searing psychological thriller from bestseller Unger (The Red Hunter). After Jack Lang is beaten to death while jogging in Manhattan's Riverside Park early one morning, his widow, Poppy, has a nervous breakdown. A year later, Poppy is getting back to work at the couple's boutique photography agency, but she still suffers from hallucinations and nightmares. She's also haunted by a reoccurring vision of a man in a hood that could be related to Jack's murder. She feels both comforted and suffocated by her mother and her best friend, Layla Van Santen, who worry because she continues to self-medicate with drugs and disappears for days, sometimes with strangers she meets online. Poppy's search for Jack's killer is the one thing that gives her focus. Though Poppy's visions and flashbacks to the Langs' life together occasionally become repetitious, the fully realized characters keep the plot from lagging. Readers will feel both empathy and sympathy for the driven Poppy. Agent: Amy Berkower, Writers House. (Oct.) © Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.


Library Journal Review

After the brutal murder of her husband, Jack, Poppy Lang grieved in myriad ways: predictable, traditional, and unorthodox. The only problem with her unconventional methods is that she can't remember anything that occurred. She "woke up" in a strange, tight red dress, but, otherwise, she has no clue as to what transpired over the course of several days. Moving forward, as she's attempting to regain her life, Poppy is mired in a haze of pills (used to cope), waking nightmares, and paranoia, and she's increasingly haunted by the time she can't account for and afraid to remember what she's done. Unger's (The Red Hunter; Ink and Bone) narrative keeps up a frenetic pace, with short chapters featuring lots of action. Sometimes there is too much going on, but overall the story is exciting and worthwhile. VERDICT Recommend this beachy thriller to fans of B.A. Paris, Ruth Ware, and Gillian Flynn.
