Until the Day You Die Tina Wainscott St. Martin's, Jul 2007, $6.99 ISBN: 9780312941635 Maggie Fletcher finds her sister, Dana battered, raped and dying. She believes Colin Masters killed her sibling as he was stalking her from the moment he saw her working at the Mystic Café. Maggie¿s testimony convicted Masters, but she perjured herself as she had no hard evidence that he committed the homicide. Masters goes to prison, but the harassment of Maggie begins. Six months later worried about her nine years old son Luke, Maggie moves them to Portsmouth, New Hampshire. However, three years pass, but Masters is free seeking to destroy the woman who lied on the witness stand. She knows he will target anyone she loves before he comes for her. --- UNTIL THE DAY YOU DIE is an exciting dark thriller that grips the audience from the onset when a terrorized Dana tells her sister that he sees her when she is sleeping, he sees her when she is working, and he sees her whenever he desires. The tale is at its best when the heroine is front and center as she provides a first person account of her actions, motives, and fears especially a sort of déjà vu feeling that she is repeating the last days of her sister. When other players especially the villain take center stage, the third person usage seems contrastingly off kilter as the audience never gets inside the head of the killer. Filled with twists and starring a devious malevolent villain, Tina Wainscott provides an exhilarating character driven suspense. --- Harriet KlausnerWas this review helpful?
