Kind of Cruel (Zailer & Waterhouse Series #7) by Sophie Hannah

“Kind, cruel, kind of cruel.” Amber thinks it’s just nonsense, a side effect of being hypnotized for the first time. But when she’s arrested for a brutal murder two hours later, those four words are the key to clearing her name… if only she could remember where she’d seen them.
Amber Hewerdine suffers from chronic insomnia. As a last resort, she visits a hypnotherapist, doubtful that anything will really change. Under hypnosis, Amber hears herself saying, “Kind, cruel, kind of cruel.” The words awaken a vague memory, but she dismisses the whole episode as nonsense. Two hours later, however, Amber is arrested for the brutal murder of a woman she’s never heard of, and the only way she can clear her name is by remembering exactly where she’s seen those words.
Kind of Cruel
is the latest page-turner in Hannah's Zailer and Waterhouse mystery series, and will enthrall Hannah’s ever-growing readership.

I am about 3/4 through this book and I find myself avoiding reading it because I don't want it to end!! The characters in this book are well-developed yet mysterious. The story is multi-layrered, and chapters alternate between characters, past and present. As you are reading there are three different mysteries that keep you captivated as small details are revealed. This book interested me from the first page when the author discussed memories and how we alter them with each re-telling of them, creating more of a story than an actual memory. If you enjoy psychological thrillers then you will thoroughly enjoy this book. This is by far Sophie Hannah's best yet!
