No One Needs To Know by Kevin O'Brien is a five star read, start to finish. It is the first book I have read by this author but I just added all of his books to my wish list.
He is a masterful story teller. While the story line kept me guessing moment to moment, the characters are well written & believable. It gave me a sleepless night because I kept telling myself: Just one more chapter. The suspense was intriguing.
Now I've got a book hangover. That's the best recommendation I can give a book.
The main character Laurie was being stalked by the brother of the man she had a brief fling with while her husband served in Afghanistan. She contacted the police.
"The local police had already had several brushes with Ryder McBride. 'Him & his gang on that farm off Highway 97 have been a major thorn in my side,' Don Eberhard had said earlier, switching off the tape recorder on his desk for a moment. 'McBride's been arrested several times--& each time's he walked. We couldn't make any of the charges stick. The scumbag's as slippery as a greased flag pole.'"
There were brief moments of confusion that arose toward the end of the book when the same woman was described but without the clarity that they were aliases. With continued reading, the meaning became clear & it did not detract from the book as a whole.
If you enjoy suspense-filled thrillers, I highly recommend this book.
I would like to thank the author, Kensington Books, the publisher & NetGalley for a complimentary kindle copy of this book. This did not change my opinion for this review.
