The story told in “Poison” is riveting and totally blew my mind. This is very much a psychological thriller that will leave you breathless. Cass and Ryan Connor have what looks like the perfect marriage and family. A nice home in a nice neighborhood, 3 kids around the table, jobs they enjoy: what could possibly be wrong? Cass starts to notice things that just seem a bit off. Ryan takes longer than necessary getting home from the airport and he smells of alcohol. Was he with somebody else? But his explanation makes so much sense. Then Cass starts to feel ill, nausea and vomiting. Ryan seems more short tempered than usual. That fish he brought home just doesn’t taste right. Is there any validity to her suspicions? Why will no one believe her?
This story really gets into Cass’s head, exploring her thoughts and her perceptions in a way I’ve never experienced before in a book. At times I believed Cass was right, but then there were moments when I thought perhaps she was losing her mind. And you really have to go all the way to the end to find out whose story is the truth. But then I was wondering if Cass was going to make it to the end of the story. This is really good stuff! “Poison” is the first book I have read from this author and I am so impressed that I will have to check out more. The story is masterfully written, the characters are beautifully drawn and the ending was very satisfying. I highly recommend this one!
