Book Description

 From the bestselling author of All Is Not Forgotten comes a thriller about two missing sisters, a twisted family, and what happens when one girl comes back...

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.

"In this searing psychological thriller...Walker's portrayal of the ways in which a narcissistic,
self-involved mother can affect her children deepens the plot as it builds to a shocking finale." –Publishers Weekly, Starred Review

"A tense thriller explores the bond between sisters and family dynamics that give new meaning to the term 'dysfunctional'...This thriller aims right for the heart and never lets go." –Kirkus, Starred Review

"Both twisted and twisty, this smart psychological thriller sets a new standard for unreliable narrators." –Booklist, Starred Review

My Review

 Emma in the Night is the second novel of author Wendy Walker's that I have read. Walker's first book, All is Not Forgotten, was a fabulous read. Emma in the Night is an excellent second novel. You won't be disappointed.

If you are looking for a psychological thriller filled with twists then Emma in the Night is for you. I knew there was always more to the story but I didn't predict what was going to happen at all. The Tanner sisters both disappeared three years ago. Only Cass returns. Where is Emma?

I don't want to give anything away. What a great book. Highly recommend for fans of thrillers. Great read!
