FIRST DATES CAN BE MURDER…


Laura has never been lucky in love. She falls too hard and too fast, always choosing the wrong men. Devastated by the end of her last relationship, she fled her apartment for her sister’s home in the suburb where they both grew up. Though still haunted by the tragedy that’s defined her entire life, Laura is determined to take one more chance on love with a man she’s met on an Internet dating site.

Rosie has spent most of her life worrying about her troubled sister. Laura’s return, under mysterious circumstances, has cast a shadow over Rosie’s peaceful life with her husband and young son – a shadow that grows darker as Laura leaves the house for her blind date.

When Laura doesn’t return home the following morning, Rosie fears the worst. She’s not responding to calls or texts, and she’s left no information about the man she planned to meet. As Rosie begins a desperate search to find her sister, she is not just worried about what this man might have done to Laura. She’s worried about what Laura may have done to him…

Reviews

A dazzling hall-of-mirrors thriller: ferociously smart, furiously paced, and - best of all - honest-to-goodness surprising. All hail Wendy Walker.
AJ Finn
Wendy Walker proves her ingenuity with her latest hair-raising chiller. Teeming with her uncanny insight into the dark side of human nature, THE NIGHT BEFORE IS IRRESISTIBLE.
Mary Kubica
AS TIMELY AS IT IS COMPELLING... Through twist after twist, the story takes you to deep, dark places where few thrillers dare to go.
Riley Sager
I raced through The Night Before, another page-turning cracker from Wendy Walker. You're in for a treat
BA Paris
Walker's clever misdirection paves the way to a truly chilling finale, and she has plenty of insightful things to say about the blame placed on women by society and themselves for the idiotic, careless, and sometimes downright evil things men do. Twisty and propulsive.
Kirkus
Devilishly plotted ... a twist-filled tale.
