Amanda Sinclair is a lab technician at an on-the-brink of big-time breakout cosmetics company in Chicago. And she has a secret. Her mother killed Amanda's younger brother, and then tried to get Amanda to help her kill her other brother. For the past 10 years, her mother has been in a mental institution. Today she received a phone call ... her mother has committed suicide. Found in her mother's belongings are newspapers outlining her mother's crime and information about the cult leader that Amanda holds responsible for her mother going off the deep end. Amanda now believes someone intentionally killed her mother. And then strange things begin to happen. Someone pushes her into oncoming traffic. Something she has eaten or drank was laced with a poison. Who wanted her mother dead? Who wants Amanda dead? Why? You can take your pick of suspects. Her mother's psychiatrist who seems to have taken a personal interest in Amanda. A young man, co-worker, who has been rebuffed from Amanda more than once. A young woman, also a co-worker, who seems to get real friendly, although they barely know each other. Her boss who is in the middle of selling his company... and Amanda has found some discrepancies in trials that were done. A woman who once worked at the mental institution, who seems to never have existed. The homeless man that Amanda has befriended? This is a well-written mystery with lots of intriguing characters. Secrets abound ... characters lie. Who is Amanda to trust? Twists in the story line kept me turning pages until the very end. I wish to thank the author / Midnight Ink / Netgalley who provided an uncorrected advance copy of this novel. The opinion expressed here is unbiased and entirely my own.
ARC Received from publisher This is a frustrating mystery, where everyone seems like a suspect. Who can you trust? Just when you think you have it pegged a new twist emerges. This was a quick read because I couldn't put it down. I needed to figure it out. I really liked this book right up to the end when I felt like the conclusion was rushed. Had there been a little more substance to the ending I think it would have earned another star from me. The writing is simplistic making it an easy read and one that even younger readers may enjoy.
