EMMA IN THE NIGHT is a psychological
thriller and caught my attention from the first page
drawing me into a very suspenseful read that I just could
not put down! The story centers around two sisters: Emma
who is 17 and Cass who is 15. One night they both
disappear without a trace. Then three years later Cass
returns but Emma doesn't. This sudden reappearance causes
a lot of drama and even gets the attention of the FBI all
of whom believe that Cass's story is very far-fetched. This
is the part where things really get interesting and
very suspenseful because Cass and her mom are not very
reliable and are known for not always being so honest.
The question still remains...where is her sister?
investigation begins with the FBI, Forensic Psychiatrist
and Agent Winters. Winters' main area of focus is
personality disorders and specifically, narcissism. The
doctor/agent digs deep into Cass' family and history
digging up many unknowns. I do not want to give too much
away because this is truly a remarkable read that is so
suspenseful it will keep you wide awake at night jumping
at any noise you hear.
Walker writes a remarkable
terrifying novel that will have you second guessing who
done it and why. The setting is equally as dark and
unknown as the plot line which takes you on such a roller
coaster ride of emotions. You will be on the edge of your
seat unable to sit still because of the sheer suspense of
what is waiting on the next page. EMMA IN THE NIGHT is a
read if you love suspenseful thrillers.
One night three years ago, the Tanner sisters
disappeared: fifteen-year-old Cass and seventeen-year-old
Emma. Three years later, Cass returns, without her sister
Emma. Her story is one of kidnapping and betrayal, of a
mysterious island where the two were held. But to
forensic psychiatrist Dr. Abby Winter, something doesn't
add up. Looking deep within this dysfunctional family Dr.
Winter uncovers a life where boundaries were violated and
a narcissistic parent held sway. And where one sister's
return might just be the beginning of the crime.
