Complicit by Stephanie Kuehn
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
There are some dreams you can't wake up from.
These are called nightmares.
When 16 year-old Jamie Henry's sister was sentenced to juvenile detention two years ago for starting a fire that almost killed another teen, Jamie was relieved. He loved his sister Cate. But she was a manipulative liar. She was destructive. She was dangerous. And now, she's out and is coming back for him.
Jamie has his own demons. He can't remember his childhood -- when he was little, when Cate was a sweet big sister. The time before their mother was shot to death. With therapy and loving adoptive parents, Jamie is making progress. Until Cate calls.
COMPLICIT is a tight psychological thriller, expertly plotted as present and past collide. I'm in awe of Kuehn's economy. There are no extra words in this book. It is a raw story laid bare.
