What should be a cozy and fun-filled weekend deep in the English countryside takes a sinister turn in Ruth Ware's suspenseful, compulsive, and darkly twisted psychological thriller.
Leonora, known to some as Lee and others as Nora, is a reclusive crime writer, unwilling to leave her nest of an apartment unless it is absolutely necessary. When a friend she hasn't seen or spoken to in years unexpectedly invites Nora (Lee?) to a weekend away in an eerie glass house deep in the English countryside, she reluctantly agrees to make the trip. Forty-eight hours later, she wakes up in a hospital bed injured but alive, with the knowledge that someone is dead. Wondering not what happened? but what have I done?, Nora (Lee?) tries to piece together the events of the past weekend. Working to uncover secrets, reveal motives, and find answers, Nora (Lee?) must revisit parts of herself that she would much rather leave buried where they belong: in the past.
In the tradition of Paula Hawkins's instant New York Times bestseller The Girl On the Train and S. J. Watson's riveting national sensation Before I Go To Sleep, this gripping literary debut from UK novelist Ruth Ware will leave you on the edge of your seat through the very last page.

Write Review
Badly written, horribly misconceived, and with a thin plot line. Had such high hopes for this one. It's reminiscent of the Gone Girl movies. It's not the best literary work of fiction to begin with, but at least it was entertaining and not too predictable. This was a great drivel, Quattrone said.
   Awesome read
Loved this book! Finished so quickly because I couldn’t put it down!
   Awesome read
This book was awesome! I finished it so quickly because I couldn’t put it down. Love this author!
   Ruth Ware does great job with follow up to The Woman in Cabin 10
This is the second book I've read by Ruth Ware, and it was great. Very different story, but very suspenseful, Raymond said. It's great to be back home, said Blair, "but setting a fire alarm is terrifying at times." Great twist at the end, added Harrison.
   Pretty good
While there were parts of the book I enjoyed, it was so cliquey and mean girl it lost me in others. The book was written well, so that kept me going and wanting to find out what happened there.
   Excellent Read
One of her good ones, Mr. Caramore said. nan
   Predictable plot, annoying characters
I had read and enjoyed The Death of Mrs. Westaway, so I felt secure in choosing another Ruth Ware title. What a mistaken conclusion, Mr. Rule told the judge. Perhaps the issue was that this was Ms. Ware's first published book -- although the paperback copy I purchased has all sorts of popular culture types praising it, and the promise of a Reese Witherspoon movie adaptation.
It was OK, not scary or creepy, as some suggested. The first half was slow, the build up was thrilling but then fell flat at the end of the game, he said. No clear motive for the attack. However, the writer's style is descriptive and you can actually visualize the story.
   compelling narrative, very fast paced
There were a few things that needed a copy editor, like a character is described as wearing a skirt and later in the same scene as wearing jeans, and another character says her hair is too short to even tuck behind her ears. It's a minor thing, but seriously no editor. Apart from that, it was a very fun read that kept the action going fast. If you're looking for a fast-paced thriller, this is for you.
   Pretty decent light fun reading
This was a fun, easy book, and I recommend it to anyone. Not hard to figure out who the killer was eventually, but it was mostly a clever and suspenseful exercise in suspense. It's just that the kid is scared, or at least not that scary. The second half did not even need to be that long. It's great to be back home, said Blair.
