Don't You Cry by Mary Kubica

Mary Kubica is one of those writers who mkes your brain explode. Her thrillers are not action packed, but they are so full of clues you have to read them twice. You get to the end and go, "Wait. What?!?!?!?!?"

I started reading Kubica's books with The Good Girl and have devoured her two subsequent books.

The book description reads, " In downtown Chicago, a young woman named Esther Vaughan disappears from her apartment without a trace. A haunting letter addressed to My Dearest is found among her possessions, leaving her friend and roommate Quinn Collins to wonder where Esther is and whether or not she's the person Quinn thought she knew. Meanwhile, in a small Michigan harbor town an hour outside Chicago, a mysterious woman appears in the quiet coffee shop where eighteen-year-old Alex Gallo works as a dishwasher. He is immediately drawn to her charm and beauty, but what starts as an innocent crush quickly spirals into something far more dark and sinister than he ever expected. As Quinn searches for answers about Esther, and Alex is drawn further under Pearl's spell, master of suspense Mary Kubica takes readers on a taut and twisted thrill ride that builds to a stunning conclusion and shows that no matter how fast and far we run, the past always catches up with us in the end."

The action in the novel unfolds slowly, but with so much intrigue it keeps you going. There are twists and turns and you just don't know what to expect around each turn. This isn't the kind of novel where you round the bend and something jumps out at you. Instead, it's just the opposite. You round the bend and nothing jumps out at you. The next scene unfolds, and the next. You are pulled along on a steady undercurrent until everything you thought you knew turns out to be dead wrong.

This one was hard to put down and I highly recommend this book as well as others by Kubica.
