#MMBBR #Review #FirstLine #Blame by @JeffAbbott #GrandCentralPublishing @AmazonPub


Sometimes the person you thought you knew best... Turns out to be someone you never really knew at all.

From "one of the best thriller writers in the business" (Associated Press) comes a novel praised by Harlan Coben as "mesmerizing, gripping...the perfect blend of complex characters, plot twists galore, and great psychological suspense."  
 The crash that killed him

Two years ago, Jane Norton crashed her car on a lonely road, killing her friend David and leaving her with amnesia. At first, everyone was sympathetic. Then they found Jane's note: I wish we were dead together. 
 A girl to blame

From that day the town turned against her. But even now Jane is filled with questions: Why were they on that road? Why was she with David? Did she really want to die?
 The secrets she should forget

Most of all, she must find out who has just written her an anonymous message: I know what really happened. I know what you don't remember...

#FirstLine ~ What she would never remember: their broken screams starting with I love... and I hate..., the sudden wrenching pull, the oh-no-this-is-happening-this-can't-be-happening feeling of falling as the SUV rocketed off the road, the horrifying downward slope of the hillside in the highlights, his hands tight over hers on the steering wheel, the smashing thunder of impact, the driver's-side airbag exploding in her face, the rolling, the lights dying, the unforgiving rock, and then the blow to the head that undid her and wiped her clean and made her new. 

From that first line, which is amazing, til the very last page I was hooked. It was such a great book set around lies.  The twists and turn will put you off kilter and keep you deeply immersed in the book. The characters are well fleshed out and the dialogue is fantastic.  A must for fall and winter reading.  
Jeff Abbott is the New York Times bestselling author of fourteen novels. He is the winner of an International Thriller Writers Award (for the Sam Capra thriller The Last Minute) and is a three-time nominee for the Edgar award. He lives in Austin with his family.

"I could not tear myself away from Jeff Abbott's mesmerizing, gripping, and claustrophobic novel.  BLAME is the perfect blend of complex characters, plot twists galore, and great psychological suspense. Don't miss it.” —Harlan Coben

"Blame is a masterful suspense novel, full of dread, lies, and deceptions. Abbott is one of our finest writers, and Blame takes his talents to new levels. Sinister and twisting, this is hands-down the best book you'll read--and re-read--this year. Absolutely top-notch.” —J.T. EllisonNew York Times bestselling author

"[A] tense psychological thriller...The unconventional plot, the constant surprises, and above all the psychological depth of the characters all make this a first-rate crime novel. —Kirkus Reviews

" emotionally complex tale replete with finely drawn characters, shocking twists, and convincing red herrings.” —Publishers Weekly

"Last year, Harlan Coben's Fool Me Once was our highest-rated thriller of 2016. Abbot's BLAME is every bit as good and packs even more surprises along the way, leading up to a shocking ending that nobody, not even veteran readers of the genre, will ever see coming.
Abbott's lightning-quick pacing and constant twists and turns make his latest offering impossible to put down. A one-sit read that'll have readers up way past their bedtimes, BLAME is Jeff Abbott's best novel so far--and a strong contender for best psychological thriller of the year. “ —

"If you like Harlan Coben, read this book. Taut, twisty, and elegantly-written, with an ending you won't see coming.” —Sarah Pekkanen, bestselling author of The Perfect Neighbors

"Jeff Abbott is a remarkable writer and storyteller, and brings his skills to the realm of psychological suspense with this absolutely captivating book. Emotionally compelling, tense and packed with shocking plot twists, this book makes me have to use a word I hate: Unputdownable. I loved it.” —Alison GaylinUSA Today Bestselling Author of What Remains of Me

"From the moment I set eyes on the viscerally magnetic Jane, I was spooked and positively riveted.  Jeff Abbott proves, with this richly satisfying novel, that he is a master of suspense and tension.” —Sara Blaedel, #1 internationally bestselling author of The Forgotten Girls
