The Only One Left

This is the first A+ thriller I have read in a bit; I really loved it! I generally really love Riley Sager’s books and I think that this is my favorite of his so far. Kit McDeere is down on her luck; having just had a major career setback. As a home-health aide, she’s given a “last chance” sort of job assignment, meaning she either takes the job or won’t get another one. The thing is, she is assigned to care for an assumed killer. Years ago, when she was just seventeen; Lenora Hope’s whole family was murdered and everyone assumes Lenora was the killer. The police were never able to prove it but Lenora is notorious. She’s never spoken about it and she doesn’t leave her house. Now Lenora is in her seventies and confined to a wheelchair after a series of strokes. She can only communicate by tapping out sentences on an old typewriter. One night, Lenora offers to tell Kit everything. I will say no more but this book is extremely twisty and had my mind in overdrive the whole time. And the ending was extremely satisfying. I haven’t liked a thriller so much in a while, I highly recommend this!
