Two sisters disappeared one night. Three years later, only one of them came back. Where happened to the other one? Will she be found?
Emma in the Night is a fascinating story centering around the disappearance of the Tanner sisters—Emma and Cass—and the investigation that takes place after Cass returns alone. Cass tells the police Emma arranged to run away from home—and their abusive mother— to live on a secluded island with a couple who promised to help her. Unbeknownst to Emma, Cass followed her the night she left, and was brought to the island along with her sister when she was discovered. Rather than a sanctuary, the island became a prison, and it took three years for Cass to make her escape. Having gained her freedom at last, Cass asks the police to help save Emma before it’s too late. But forensic psychiatrist Dr. Abby Winter felt Cass wasn’t being completely truthful with them, and her investigation leads to a shocking revelation.
I loved this novel! Cass was often an unreliable narrator, and I spent a lot of time trying to read between the lines of what she was saying or doing at the moment. I’m not sure what I expected, but when the big reveal finally came, it knocked me off my feet. That was a twist I definitely didn’t see coming. Highly recommended!
