Book Description

Named One of the Most Anticipated Thriller Novels Of 2017 by Bustle!


If you can’t trust yourself, who can you trust?

Cass is having a hard time since the night she saw the car in the woods. It was on the winding rural road, in the middle of a downpour, and a woman was 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, and she probably would have been hurt herself if she’d stopped. Not only that, her husband would be furious if he knew she’d broken her promise not to take that shortcut home.

But since then, she’s been forgetting every little thing. Where she left the car; if she took her pills; even the alarm code.

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

And the silent calls she’s receiving, or the feeling that someone’s watching her…

You won't be able to put down B. A. Paris's The Breakdown, the next chilling, propulsive novel from the New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of Behind Closed Doors.

"B. A. Paris has done it again! The Breakdown is a page-turning thriller that will leave you questioning the family you love, the friends you trust, and even your own mind." --Wendy Walker, author of the USA Today bestselling novel All Is Not Forgotten

"In the same vein as the author's acclaimed debut, Behind Closed Doors, this riveting psychological thriller pulls readers into an engrossing narrative in which every character is suspect. With its well-formed protagonists, snappy, authentic dialog, and clever and twisty plot, this is one not to miss." --Library Journal (starred)

About the Author

B A Paris grew up in England but has spent most of her adult life in France. She has worked both in finance and as a teacher and has five daughters. Behind Closed Doors is her first novel.

My Review

The Breakdown is the new standalone novel by B.A. Paris. Last year I read her debut novel Behind Closed Doors which was a terrifyingly amazingly good read! The Breakdown is also another fabulous read!

I found The Breakdown chilling right from the beginning. I had such a hard time putting down this excellent thriller. B.A. Paris is an excellent writer who knows just where to put the twists to keep the reader enthralled.

I found The Breakdown to be incredibly fascinating because of the references to memory. I found it terrifying as Cass struggled to remember things. She kept misplacing things and who was calling her all the time? As the novel progressed and I began to suspect what was going on it made me question the motives people can have.

I found The Breakdown to be a riveting read. Highly recommend! Another winner from B.A. Paris.
