MY LATEST READ (April 2015)

I wish I liked THE POCKET WIFE more than I did... I was looking for a stylish thriller with lots of intrigue and not too many side plots. I got what I deserved. It's stylish, not too compelling and brimming with frenetic, unlikeable characters. I'm halfway through and look forward to a predictable ending... Take THE POCKET WIFE on vacation....or on any way.

THE POCKET WIFE by Susan Crawford (Psychological Thriller)
Dana Catrell is shocked when her neighbor, Celia, is brutally murdered. To Dana’s horror, she was the last person to see Celia alive. Suffering from mania, the result of her bipolar disorder, she has troubling holes in her memory, including what happened on the afternoon of Celia’s death.

Her husband’s odd behavior and the probing of Detective Jack Moss create further complications as she searches for answers. The closer she comes to piecing together the shards of her broken memory, the more Dana falls apart. Is there a murderer lurking inside her...or is there one out there in the shadows of reality, waiting to strike again?

Here's a new one by mystery writer Harlan Coben....

THE STRANGER by Harlan Coben (Thriller)

The Stranger appears out of nowhere. His identity is unknown, and his motives are unclear. But his information is undeniable. He whispers a few words in your ear and disappears, leaving you picking up the pieces of your shattered world. Adam Price has a lot to lose: a comfortable marriage to a beautiful woman, two wonderful sons, and all the trappings of the American Dream. Then he runs into the Stranger. When he learns a devastating secret about his wife, he confronts her, and the mirage of perfection disappears as if it never existed at all.
