Rezension

One neighbourhood, four couples, an amateur burglar and one dead body - this is a masterful whodunnit, perfectly paced and expertly plotted, that had me guessing all the way through. Like Desperate Housewives with bite. I loved it and couldn't put it down. C. L. Taylor

Shari Lapena – Someone We Know

Miss.mesmerized am 22.07.2019

Bewertet: eBook (ePUB)

Aylesford is a small community not far from New York. People know each other, are friends, have barbecues together and share their everyday problems. New to the neighbourhood are Amanda and Robert Pierce, both stunningly attractive and younger than the rest with their teenage kids. When Amanda goes missing, everybody soon blames the husband, the obvious suspect, but then, slowly, the facades of the good people start to crumble. They are not the loving husbands who go to work every day to support their beloved family, they are not the good housewives who only care for their dears and they are not the good kids of the suburbs. They all have their secrets they thought well hidden, but now it’s time for revelation. I hardly could put down Shari Lapena’s thriller since I was hooked from the first page. She has created the perfect environment for readers who enjoy a bit of schadenfreude. Those nice people who appear to be caring and concerned about the others and who are suddenly confronted with their dark sides that threaten the picture they have drawn of themselves. A great read that was not only fun to read because all of them sooner or later have to admit their misconduct, but first and foremost, because the plot was masterly woven and thus kept suspense high until the very end. It’s hard to say more about the plot without giving away too much. I liked how Lapena slowly unravels the revelations and shifts the focus from one character to the next. They all act suspiciously and at a certain point, I gave up believing any of them since it was too obvious that none of them is innocent in one way or the other. The author skilfully plays with the reader along these lines and this keeps you addicted since you eagerly want to find out what actually happened. It’s a brilliant, enthralling novel that you cannot stop reading once you’ve started.

5/5

Can't reject a surburban thriller

Bewertet: Buch (Taschenbuch)

Without arguing, I think we can all agree that Shari Lapena is the queen of writing suburban thrillers. Without a fail, she delivered this time with "Someone We Know" again. Her style of writing amazes me every time and she manages to deliver just the right amount of emotions. The story takes many twists and turns and is spun so delicately. I felt like I suspected a new person to be the murderer on every single page. With that many plot twists, one can't feel the slightest bit of boredom the whole read. Therefore, it's no wonder that the book had a tight grip on me the whole time and I could barely put it down. But let's talk about the contents of the book for a short while. The storyline starts with a teenage boy breaking into his neighbours' PCs at night. Why? Because he seeks the adrenaline. When his mother finds out, she's horrified. But she can't stop herself from informing the affected neighbours. Soon, gossip starts to arise and mount. Who is that boy? Why would he do that? And what was he searching for on these computers? Then, the corpse of a woman is being found and the tension reaches its peak. The two thrilling storylines eventually collide. A definite recommendation for anyone who's looking for an all-nighter!
