My rating: 3 of 5 stars

While there are some clear comparisons to be made to Gone Girl (two voices, two unlikeable characters) publishers just need to stop making that claim. What happened twenty years ago in Spain, how that affected Catherine and Nancy (and Stephen) and what made Nancy write a book about it, one that is so clearly based on one person's account of what happened then/there are interesting questions. The bigger question is why Catherine never says anything to her husband once the book appears, and why she lets things gets to the point she does. Once again, it's a good concept ruined by the main character making dumb choices, much like The Wrong Man (Kate White) or Second Life (S.J. Watson) earlier this year.
