Try Not to Breathe
"I'm asleep more than I'm awake these days." ~ pg. 286
Alex Dale is taking one day at a time. Recovering from a rocky past and destructive habits, she tries to regain control of her life. She suddenly feels she has purpose when she discovers Amy Stevenson, a girl from a nearby town who was assaulted and has been in a coma for fifteen years. Unbeknownst to doctors, Amy is conscious but paralyzed. Every day is spent reliving the past.
Alex begins to interview people connected to the attack trying to solve a crime where the only true witness cannot testify. Sounds like a really good tale, right?
This book was recommended for fans of Gillian Flynn and Paula Hawkins. That would be me! So I spent a couple evenings reading Try Not to Breathe and fully expected to not breathe in between chapters. I tend to hold my breath when reading/watching something really suspenseful. Unfortunately, I never skipped a breath. But it was still a good book with a good concept and a good level of suspense. It would translate even better on the big screen. Kudos to this debut author!
Try Not to Breathe will be published on February 23, 2016. Try reading this psycho suspense.
