Gone Tonight

Sarah Pekkanen is one of my favorites for thrillers and I could not wait to read this one. It did not disappoint. I am not going to tell you too much as it would be easy to provide spoilers, so I apologize for being vague. The net takeaway is that this is a different sort of domestic thriller; between mother an daughter. And that I really enjoyed it and would highly recommend. That’s what you need to know. It alternates between the perspectives of mother and daughter Ruth & Catherine. Ruth was a teen mom and is now 41, Catherine is 24. For as long as Catherine has been alive, Ruth’s main priority has been keeping her daughter safe. Ruth has a past, having run away from her family as a teenager. As cracks begin to emerge in the carefully constructed world Ruth has created for her daughter, trust erodes between the two of them. I will say no more than that, just trust me, this is a good one!
