Edwin Hill, the author of “Watch Her” has written an intriguing, captivating, suspenseful, and intense novel. This is the third novel in the Hester Thursby series, and can be read as a stand alone, and is my favorite book in the series. The genres for this novel are Psychological Thriller, Suspense and Mystery, and Fiction. The timeline for this story is set in the present and goes to the past when it pertains to the characters or events. I love the way that Edwin Hill vividly describes both the setting and his characters. The author describes his characters as complex, complicated, secretive, and quirky. There are deep dark secrets from the past that can affect both the events and characters if they come to light. There are betrayals, lies, threats, danger and murder.
When Hester Thursby and Detective Angela White attend a college gala, they find themselves at the home of the college’s owners, the Matsons. It seems there was a break-in and Angela and Hester investigate. Hester is asked by the college manager to check on a list of students. Hester seems to be drawn into a psychological web of past secrets, present lies and danger. At the same time, Hester worries about her home life.
I would highly recommend this thought-provoking and amazing novel for readers, who enjoy an intense, suspenseful, psychological thriller. I can’t wait to read Edwin Hill’s next novel!
