Inhaltsangabe zu "Follow Me Down: A Novel"

Follow Me Down is a rare find—a gutsy, visceral, and beautifully crafted psychological thriller that Diane Chamberlain called "an engrossing page turner [that] will keep you guessing right up to the delicious ending" from talented new author Sherri Smith. Mia Haas has built her life far from the North Dakota town where she grew up, but when she receives word that her twin brother is missing, she is forced to return home. Back to the people she left behind, the person she used to be, and the secrets she thought she’d buried. Once hailed as the golden boy of their town, and now a popular high school teacher, Lucas Haas disappears the same day the body of one of his students is pulled from the river. Trying to wrap her head around the rumors of Lucas’s affair with the teen, and unable to reconcile the media’s portrayal of Lucas as a murderer with her own memories of him, Mia is desperate to find another suspect. All the while, she wonders: If he’s innocent, why did he run? As Mia reevaluates their difficult, shared history and launches her own investigation into the grisly murder, she uncovers secrets that could exonerate Lucas—or seal his fate. In a small town where everyone’s lives are intertwined, Mia must confront her own demons if she wants to get out alive. At the Publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management Software (DRM) applied.

    Keeps you guessing

    This was a very ambivalent read for me. While I couldn't put the book down, eager to finally solve the mysteries of murder and disappearance, there where several parts where I was totally frustrated by the main character's unreasonable behavior and naive actions.

    Mia Haas is contacted by the police who is searching for her brother. When she is told that Lucas is accused of having murdered one of his students, Mia immediately travels back to her hometown Wayoata. She is determined to find out what happened, as she is convinced that her brother can't be the murderer and fears that he may be a victim of crime himself. Trying desperately to figure out what happened to her brother and who the real murderer is, she treads on almost every foot available in town. However, the police as well as the residents of Wayoata have already convicted Lucas of being guilty for the gruesome murder, being sure that he fled town to escape punishment.

    Which each day, Mia uncovers new secrets and intrigues that point to different suspects, but also plant seeds of doubt in her believe in her brother's innocence. However, Mia does not give up, even when intimidated and threatened herself.

    The story took some really wild and unpredictable turns, more than once bordering on incredibility. Only at the very end the solution was presented as yet another surprising twist. I loved being left in the dark for so long and led on several different tracks only to find that they led to a dead end. However, at some point it almost became annoying to be given the runaround yet again. One detail that bothered me the whole time was Mia's pill abuse, which seemed a convenient way to explain away her repeatedly crude actions, but soon became tiring and superfluous. But in a weird way, these minor flaws also add to this suspenseful and surprising story's appeal.

    (Thanks to Netgalley, the author, and the publisher for a copy of the book, all opinions are my own)
