Awful! Since I actually spent money on this book, I felt I had to read it. After about 1/3, I started skimming it. It was painful even skimming it. The description sounded really interesting, but what a let down. Waste of money.
Stephanie is running from her past. Even though she is under witness protection, "he" has found her. It was her testimony that put him away in a youth prison when he was but 8 years old ..and now he wants revenge. Her psychologist, Connie Summers, wants to help .. they even have things in common ... like they are both living under assumed names. "He" is her brother .. diagnosed as a pyromaniac at a very young age. "He" is the one who started the fire that killed his father. Or is he? Connie has a deep dark secret, and it's coming back to haunt her. When a mutilated body shows up practically on her doorstep, both women are in mortal danger. But who was murdered? And more importantly, who's next? This story is like an octopus, with all its tentacles weaving independently this way and that way, yet somehow all connected. Everyone lies. That's sort of a mantra for law enforcement officers. And now it's up to those in charge to ferret out the lies, expose them to the light of day, and solve their case. BAD SISTER is a well-written psychological thriller. The author has done a terrific job in baiting the reader with a snippet of 'then' and a story of now. What connects these two women? The ending is chilling. Many thanks to the author / Avon Books UK / Netgalley for the advanced digital copy. Opinions expressed here are unbiased and entirely my own.
