Emma in the Night
by Wendy Walker

PBR Review This story has a unique and compelling plot, and amazingly, as soon as you start reading, you are hooked. It's clear that Walker did a massive amount of research on narcissistic personality disorder, which has always piqued my interest. She gives us a complex, detailed picture of a narcissistic mother and the damaging effects this disorder has on children and marriage.

The story centers on Cass, returning home after she and her sister, both teenagers, disappeared three years earlier. Coming home alone, without her sister, she is on a mission to find Emma. She is determined focused and willing to do whatever is necessary to get this job done. There are many twists, turns, and surprises, and the author continually plants little seeds of doubt to keep you guessing. Great psychological thriller. Recommend.Back.
Talking Points: The main talking point of this book will be the many ramifications of narcissism; the damage a narcissist mother can wreak on her children and marriage. The power struggle between the various characters and the lies and secrets held and told are also discussion worthy, as are the actions and decisions of some of the characters.
PBR Reader Comments:
A psychological thriller that captures your attention right off and holds it. Two teens go missing; three years later, out of the blue, one returns home. As you read, and hear Cass's story, you know something is not right, but the author doesn't reveal too much, so the questions keep mounting. There is also quite a twist at the end. Excellent, Recommend.
