Emma in the Night by Wendy Walker


From the bestselling author of All Is Not Forgotten comes a thriller about two missing sisters, a twisted family, and what happens when one girl comes back…

One night three years ago, the Tanner sisters disappeared: fifteen-year-old Cass and seventeen-year-old Emma. Three years later, Cass returns, without her sister Emma. Her story is one of kidnapping and betrayal, of a mysterious island where the two were held. But to forensic psychiatrist Dr. Abby Winter, something doesn’t add up. Looking deep within this dysfunctional family Dr. Winter uncovers a life where boundaries were violated and a narcissistic parent held sway. And where one sister’s return might just be the beginning of the crime.


This is twisted!! That’s the only way I know how to describe this novel, COMPLETELY TWISTED!

Emma and her sister,Cass, have disappeared. Three years later Cass returns home with a strange story about her and Emma’s whereabouts. I really do not want to get into more of the story than that. I will give something away. And believe me….you do not want to know about it till you read it!

A large amount of research went into this novel. I learned a great deal about narcissistic behavior and its effects on a family. The coping mechanisms of a family member to survive this disorder are incredible.

I have no words to describe the creativity of Wendy Walker. She can come up with some psycho characters and tales which take a long time to get over. Her first novel, All is Not Forgotten, was a five star read for me. You can find my review here. Just like this book….I did not want to give the story away. You must read these novels, especially if you love psychological thrillers.

The story bogs down a little for me in the middle. This is the only reason I did not give a five star read. But the twist at the end……oh my my! “What a tangled web we weave when first we practice to deceive.” – Walter Scott

“I could feel the scream inside me. Β I had felt it that morning when I had to cover my mouth with a pillow so no one would hear.”Β – Emma in the Night

I received this novel from Netgalley for a honest review.
