The perfect life. Perfect love. The perfect lie. From the bestselling author of The Girl Before comes a gripping new psychological thriller. . . .
Abbie wakes up in a strange hospital wondering what happened to her and how did she get here? There is a man who says he is her husband, Tim.
The first inkling that something isn’t right here is when he sneaks her out of the hospital. To their home. A perfect house in a perfect area. They even have a child, Danny. Danny is on the spectrum and was a very interesting boy.
Tim is a tech giant. The man to beat in AI. A Silicon Valley hotshot. He seems very controlling and has some big anger issues. As Abbie finds out she is a cobot and not the human Abbie, who is missing and presumed dead, her uploaded memories take on a life of their own and begin filling in some blanks. Did her own husband have something to do with her disappearance?
This was some seriously disturbing reading. A psychological thrill ride. And this one is made better by the fact that someone has probably already tried this. There was a bit of a Stepford Wives feel to it. I felt so sad for AI Abbie. I was cheering her on right up until the end, which was Are You Kidding Me? The hairpin turns never ended!
