My 64th book this year)
Emma was in her teens when she went to summer camp. The year three girls went missing. All three bunked in her room. She was the last to see them. Fifteen years later the mystery is still unsolved.
All these years later, camp is reopened for the first time since the incident happened. Emma is persuaded to return by the site owner. She’s not sure it is such a good idea. But with so many thoughts haunting her mind she needs to go back. She needs to conquer her past and maybe even try to find out what really happened to those girls.
The clues are vague and misleading. Camp is as eerie as it has always been. Emma feels like she is being watched. One of the girls, Vivian, still haunts her thoughts. It seems she is on the right track, yet the closer she gets to finding out the truth the more she feels her life is being threatened.
I enjoyed most of this book although I dislike creepy, dark and eerie subject matters. The final twist was a bit too much for this novel. Less is more in this case in my opinion. So the ending was what let the book down.
I loved how Emma would confuse her past and the present. I understand why she was consumed with guilt and was continuously haunted by Vivian.
Vivian’s character was great. We all know of a girl like her from the good old school days. Emma was too unstable for my liking. However I still enjoyed the book and would recommend it to other readers. Well done to Riley Sager! I am excited that there are more books to explore by this author. I will definitely be picking up another book by Riley.
