The Breakdown

by B. A. Paris


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, 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.

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

*****4 STARS*****

B. A. Paris never lets me down. I had not expected that ending. I didn’t like the character Cass, I found her to be whiny and silly. Of course I was screaming in frustration at all that had happened to her, the plan to make her crazy. I am glad she figured it out. I was shocked by who and why.

You just never know who you can trust.
