Book review: A Fatal Inversion by Barbara Vine

Every day I get an email from BookBub giving me books that are free or on sale that are in the genres I like to read.

A few weeks ago A Fatal Inversion by Barbara Vine came up as a suggestion. I read the summary on Amazon and on Goodreads and thought it sounded good. It was $1.99 if I remember correctly.

Wow! What a great deal I got with this book!!

This book was published in 1987 and is so suspenseful! It is a thriller that has a plot that is a enthralling murder mystery, but it definitely keeps you on the edge of your seat the entire book!

It begins in present time (mid 1980s) when a couple finds two skeletons in the ground when they are burying their dog. It goes from past to present with smooth transitions from one character to the next how they are remembering the events 10 years ago. It centers around Adam, who has inherited a mansion from his great uncle. Adam and his friend Rufus decide to stay there for a summer and start a commune. The events unfold and you get to know each character but not well enough to guess the surprising ending.

I highly recommend this suspenseful thriller! I gave it 5 stars on Goodreads, which I rarely do!
