Clare Solberg's life is next to perfect. Her husband Nick
and she are very much in love. They have a beautiful little
4-year-old girl named Maisie and a 4-day old baby boy named
Felix. Then, suddenly everything shatters. Nick and Maisie
are in an unexplainable car crash that leaves Nick dead.
Maisie has hardly a scratch on her.
As Clare takes it upon herself to look into that accident
once Maisie starts to have night terrors, she discovers many
things that puzzle her. Was Nick keeping secrets from her?
What was going on with him that he was not sharing with her?
The problem is that while Clare is looking into things, she
is also being watched.
EVERY LAST LIE is a book that starts off at a run and just
keeps on picking up speed. Mary Kubica writes from the
viewpoints of both Clare and Nick leading up to the day of
that fateful accident. That not only helps you keep up with
things as they are happening but also to understand them.
The suspense is instant and gripping. I never wanted to put
down the book for even a moment, and there is not an easy
way to figure out the ending. The ending is carefully hidden
within the chapters leading up to it.
Mary Kubica has brilliantly crafted a suspenseful mystery
with EVERY LAST LIE. The words she uses made me feel every
emotion that was being experienced by all characters. I felt
so badly for Clara at times and then, other times, I wanted
to shake her because of her reactions to things. Of course,
the woman did just lose her husband right after having their
baby so I should have been more sensitive.
At any rate, EVERY LAST LIE is a book to be savored as you
fly to a jaw-dropping ending.
New York Times bestselling author of THE GOOD
GIRL Mary Kubica is back with another exhilarating thriller
as a widow's pursuit of the truth leads her to the darkest
corners of the psyche.
Clara Solberg's world shatters when her husband and their
four-year-old daughter are in a car crash, killing Nick
while Maisie is remarkably unharmed. The crash is ruled an
accident…until the coming days, when Maisie starts having
night terrors that make Clara question what really happened
on that fateful afternoon.
Tormented by grief and her obsession that Nick's death was
far more than just an accident, Clara is plunged into a
desperate hunt for the truth. Who would have wanted Nick
dead? And, more important, why? Clara will stop at nothing
to find out—and the truth is only the beginning of this
twisted tale of secrets and deceit.
Told in the alternating perspectives of Clara's
investigation and Nick's last months leading up to the
crash, master of suspense Mary Kubica weaves her most
chilling thriller to date—one that explores the dark
recesses of a mind plagued by grief and shows that some
secrets might be better left buried.
