Synopsis

This is the story of three best friends: one who was murdered, one who went to prison, and one who’s been searching for the truth all these years . . .

When she was sixteen years old, Angela Wong—one of the most popular girls in school—disappeared without a trace. Nobody ever suspected that her best friend, Georgina Shaw, now an executive and rising star at her Seattle pharmaceutical company, was involved in any way. Certainly not Kaiser Brody, who was close with both girls back in high school.

But fourteen years later, Angela Wong’s remains are discovered in the woods near Geo’s childhood home. And Kaiser—now a detective with Seattle PD—finally learns the truth: Angela was a victim of Calvin James. The same Calvin James who murdered at least three other women.

To the authorities, Calvin is a serial killer. But to Geo, he’s something else entirely. Back in high school, Calvin was Geo’s first love. Turbulent and often volatile, their relationship bordered on obsession from the moment they met right up until the night Angela was killed.

For fourteen years, Geo knew what happened to Angela and told no one. For fourteen years, she carried the secret of Angela’s death until Geo was arrested and sent to prison.

While everyone thinks they finally know the truth, there are dark secrets buried deep. And what happened that fateful night is more complex and more chilling than anyone really knows. Now the obsessive past catches up with the deadly present when new bodies begin to turn up, killed in the exact same manner as Angela Wong.

How far will someone go to bury her secrets and hide her grief? How long can you get away with a lie? How long can you live with it?

“Who do you Think you are? Runnin’ ‘round leaving scars. Collecting your jar of hearts. And tearing love apart.“

Christina Perri 🎵Jar of Hearts🎵

What if you had thought you got away with murder for 14 years? What if you found out your high school boyfriend was a serial killer? Welcome to Geo’s world! Geo was a complicated character… I found her very likable, but I knew she had a huge dark secret, and had done something bad…. I mean she was in jail and she wasn’t claiming that she was innocent…. but how big a part did she play in the murder of her high school BFF Angela?

Loved how this story was told… Clues were given and memories were revealed at the perfect pace… I felt the tension and terror that Geo felt throughout the entire story…. The parts of the book that took place in prison were interesting, however some of them were downright disturbing…. but at least in prison she was safe from Calvin her ex-boyfriend who was a serial killer, or was she?

Kaiser who was BFFs with both Angela and Geo in high school was Geo’s arresting officer… Kaiser has always had a thing for Geo, so he was very conflicted…. really liked him and couldn’t help but think… had she just dated him all of this could have been avoided… so many twists and an ending I did not see coming…

Absolutely recommend to fans of the psychological thriller with a bit of a darker side🖤🖤🖤

  1. Loved your review Berit. I totally agree with your comment “had she just dated him all of this could have been avoided” – it’s totally spot on!! But somehow, we always want what we can’t have, right? 😉
