“There’s also a stat I’ve thought about a lot lately: that the average person will walk past sixteen killers in the person’s lifetime.
I watch as a woman moves down the subway aisle.
I keep staring at her as she passes my seat. I wonder if she will walk past fifteen others during her lifetime.”
It took a while to get all the characters straight but once I did I was definitely entertained.
Shay was an interesting character, she was lonely and living a pretty ordinary life. She witnesses a horrible subway accident and from that point, her life is completely changed. She was manipulated and abused by her so-called friends but she didn’t see it because she was so grateful to have any friends at all.
The sisters were these high powered, well-dressed women who seemed to have it all and sure made it so simple to deceive Shay. The mystery itself was parsed out very very slowly and there was quite a bit of jumping around from past to present. I thought the data collection part was fascinating and I felt sympathy toward Shay.
It kept my interest because I really wanted to see how far the sisters would go in their revenge plans. I wanted to see if Shay would figure them out.
This felt like Oceans 8 with the six women and their special “club” and a little bit like an old Sydney Sheldon book “If Tomorrow Comes” where she must get revenge on every man that ever wronged her.
You probably know someone like Shay Miller.
She wants to find love, but it eludes her.
She wants to be fulfilled, but her job is a dead end.
She wants to belong, but her life is so isolated.
You probably don’t know anyone like the Moore sisters.
They have an unbreakable circle of friends.
They live the most glamorous life.
They always get what they desire.
Shay thinks she wants their life.
But what they really want is hers
