The Trap by Melanie Raabe

 

GUYS! I must have been on a thriller binge when I requested these because this is my second mind twist in a row. HOLY HECK. Did you see the Tagline?

In this twisted debut thriller, a reclusive author sets the perfect trap for her sister’s murderer — but is he really the killer?

Yeah, that about sums up the reason I grabbed it because YESSSS.

This book as s low burn that was completely what I was hoping for. This book is a translation from German, so it reads slightly different from the types of thrillers that are big in the US, or at least, the ones I have read. I loved it none the less.

I swear I spend half the book thinking the main character was crazy and the other half totally on board with her. It really helps drive you as a reader to become so invested in the heroine.

The novel was a new taste for me and I really enjoyed it. Melanie weaves the perfectly haunting story that you can’t help but want to know the end to.

Synopsis:

In this twisted debut thriller, a reclusive author sets the perfect trap for her sister’s murderer — but is he really the killer?

For 11 years, the bestselling author Linda Conrads has mystified fans by never setting foot outside her home. Haunted by the unsolved murder of her younger sister–who she discovered in a pool of blood–and the face of the man she saw fleeing the scene, Linda’s hermit existence helps her cope with debilitating anxiety. But the sanctity of her oasis is shattered when she sees her sister’s murderer on television. Hobbled by years of isolation, Linda resolves to use the plot of her next novel to lay an irresistible trap for the man. As the plan is set in motion and the past comes rushing back, Linda’s memories — and her very sanity — are called into question. Is this man a heartless killer or merely a helpless victim?
