With Malice; Eileen Cook

With MaliceWith Malice by Eileen Cook
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Narrators with amnesia are, by nature, somewhat unreliable. We have only Jill's word for the fact that she can't remember what happened in Italy, how the accident that killed her BFF Simone really occurred. By the end of the book, having been prompted all along to be careful of believing in false, planted memories, we're still unsure. It's that question that raised this from a 3-star, but the device of the Justice for Simone blog, with no idea who was/is behind it and the court case's denouement kept it from being a full 5. Had the author figured out a way for us to learn that (as she allowed us to see beyond Jill's world via transcripts and texts) this might have been the perfect book.
