This is a very good contemporary psychological mystery/thriller. The book is told from two character’s perspectives. Meg Williams, a twenty-something con woman that targets bad men that do bad things. Kat Roberts, a twenty-something aspiring journalist that blames Meg for something she did 10 years ago that derailed Kat’s life. Kat has been waiting 10 years to confront Meg and write an article that will finally bring the con woman down and gain justice for Kat.
So when Meg returns to L.A., Kat infiltrates Meg’s life to discover what her latest con is. This time Meg is posing as a high-end real estate agent. As Meg and Kat get to know each other, Kat’s assumptions about Meg start to crumble, leaving Kat even more confused about Meg.
I read this book as a buddy read for a group on Instagram. It is the perfect choice for a buddy read because there is so much to unpack and discuss. The author did a fantastic job of developing Meg and Kat. It was fascinating to see the women circle each other and try to find each other’s weaknesses. I loved reading their cat and mouse interactions. The pacing of the book is spot on and the author does a great job weaving flashbacks into the story describing Meg’s journey from homeless teenager to successful con woman, as well as Kat’s journey from recent college grad at her first job to struggling free-lance writer in an unhappy relationship.
If you’re looking for an interesting, twisty thriller, I highly recommend this book. I listened to the book on audible and the narrators did a fantastic job.
