My Rating: 5 out of 5 stars

Blurb: Cass is having a hard time since the night she saw the car in the woods, on the winding rural road, in the middle of a downpour, with the woman sitting inside—the woman who was killed. She’s been trying to put the crime out of her mind; what could she have done, really? It’s a dangerous road to be on in the middle of a storm. Her husband would be furious if he knew she’d broken her promise not to take that shortcut home. And she probably would only have been hurt herself if she’d stopped.

But since then, she’s been forgetting every little thing: where she left the car, if she took her pills, the alarm code, why she ordered a pram when she doesn’t have a baby.

The only thing she can’t forget is that woman, the woman she might have saved, and the terrible nagging guilt.

My Review: 

This was an brilliant book.
We follow a character called Cass who after driving through a storm and sees a car parked in a lay by stops to see if the woman flashes her lights or anything to indicate that she needed help, when the woman doesn’t Cass drives off home.
The next day she finds out that the woman she passed has been murdered and not only that but it was someone Cass knew called Jane.
Cass is then filled with guilt, and starts getting stressed out. Soon she receives mystery silent phone calls that just don’t seen right. She then starts having nervous breakdowns and her boyfriend matthew starts getting annoyed and worried.
Cass then goes to the doctor and is prescribed medication.
Soon she starts forgetting things and thinks that she has early onset demetia. But it turns out something much worse is happening.
I loved all the twists and turns especially the shocked ending that i didn’t see coming. It just blew me away.
An amazing read for anyone who likes mystery and murder. This book was so well written i could not put it down
