Emma in the Night by Wendy Walker. Published by St. Martins

Thrillers are a hot commodity on the publishing circuit right now, and I admit to being a huge fan. That said, there are some rather ho-hum books being passed off as thrillers. Have no fear, as, Emma in the Night is the genuine article. Three years ago, fifteen year old Cass Tanner and her seventeen year old sister just disappeared. When Cass returns three years later, she’s alone. She tells authorities she and her sister were kidnapped and held against their will on an island, but psychiatrist Abby Winter doesn’t believe Cass is telling the truth. Why would Cass lie, and where is Emma? Narrated by both Cass and Abby, readers learn quickly that Emma and Cass had a disturbing relationship with their narcissistic mother and with each other. A disturbing portrait of mental illness and creepy family secrets that may  have led to murder. One to read with the lights on!
