In many ways, Reeve LeClaire looks like a typical twenty-two year old girl. She’s finally landed her own apartment, she waitresses to pay the bills, and she wishes she wasn’t so nervous around new people. She thinks of herself as agile, not skittish. As serious, not grim. But Reeve is anything but normal.
Ten years ago, she was kidnapped and held captive. After a lucky escape, she’s spent the last six years trying to rebuild her life, a recovery thanks in large part to her indispensable therapist Dr. Ezra Lerner. But when he asks her to help another girl rescued from a similar situation, Reeve realizes she may not simply need to mentor this young victim—she may be the only one who can protect her from a cunning predator who is still out there, watching every move.
From the author of the #1 non-fiction bestseller Perfect Victim: The True Story of the Girl in the Box comes a novel that draws you into a chilling and engrossing world. With powerfully gripping characters and an ending that is a masterpiece of deception, Carla Norton's The Edge of Normal is a stunning debut thriller.
The Edge of Normal was a good edge of your seat psychological thriller.
I can only imagine the horror that Reeve felt from being kidnapped all those years ago. Even though that occurred several years ago, she is still cautious and a little paranoid. But she is attempting to move forward in her life and put the past behind her. Which isn’t that easy once a young girl goes missing.
Tilly enters the story after she is rescued from a kidnapper. Reeve is asked to see Tilly in hopes that it might help not only Tilly but Reeve as well.
I thought that the suspense slowly builds throughout the story. The author did a good job of that. It kept me on edge (in a good way of course). I liked that there was a point of view from the bad guy. It’s pretty neat to see what the thought process is. This story gets the imagination going and it was easy to feel and understand what Reeve is going through.
RATING: 3½ OUT OF 5.
