Book Review: See Jane Die

Erica Spindler's See Jane Die is a suspenseful thriller that will keep you on the edge of your seat until the very ending. Its also one that doesn't give you a clue at the "whodunitt" either, so if you're like me, its pretty darn hard not to flip to the last page to see if everything worked out well for the chacters in the story. Jane Killian is a woman with much to live for. After a boating accident as a teen left her disfigured, she has rebuilt her life and her face, thanks to many surgeries. She has a promising career as an artist and a loving husband (Dr. Ian Westbrook) who is a plastic surgeon and a child on the way. That is until a woman from Ian's past turns up dead, and he looks like the most likely suspect.

To make matters worse, her semi-estranged sister was on the case. Then the notes start. Notes that very likely may have come from the boater that tried to kill her years earlier.

Jane starts out having it all and slowly but surely the killer takes away her security, starting with her husband, and then one by one, people she's worked with and friends.

The characters are written very well. The tarnished bond between the sisters really adds tension to the story.

By the time you reach the end, you aren't sure that Jane isn't going to lose it all. And the killer? Well, you'll never guess who it was, until you read it. Hands down one of the best thrillers I've read in a long time.
