    THis is the first of Gillians books which I have read. It was engrossing and twisty and kept me guessing all the way. I found it an interesting read.

    We are reading this next for book club. I have read and heard so many good reviews of this story that I am looking forward to reading it and discussing it at book club.

    This was the first of Gillian’s books that I’ve read, also. I thought it was simply brilliant; I’ve never read 400+ pages so fast in my life. I hated to put the book down it was soooo captivating with non-stop action. Now I’m just about to start “Dark Places.” Can’t wait! 😉

    This was the first of Gillian’s books I’ve read as well and I can not wait to read her other books. I’ve already put a hold on them at my local library. Most interesting story I’ve read since Cheryl Strayed’s “Wild”.
