The Breakdown - B. A. Paris

It's a stormy night and Cass Anderson is taking an isolated shortcut back to her house. She finds it odd that there's another vehicle on the lane and while Cass does stop to see if they need help all kinds of bad scenarios come to mind and plus the driver never indicted they needed help, so off she goes. Only to learn the next day that the driver of that car has been murdered. And Cass knew her. She can't confide in her husband because he told her not to take the shortcut and she promised him she wouldn't. She's convinced the murderer knows who she is. Ever since the murder she's been getting calls from an unknown number, she feels as though she's being watched and that someone has been inside her home. And she's been very forgetful - she couldn't find her car, she doesn't remember ordering things from the shopping channel, she can't remember the code for the alarm, or how to work the washing machine. Something's going on and Cass wants to get to the bottom of it.

Right from the very beginning this is a page-turner. It has a very sinister vibe throughout. I liked the setting - Cass lives at the end of road and her house is isolated. The murder happened not far from there. I couldn't wait to find out exactly what happened to that poor woman on that stormy night. I wasn't disappointed!
