Review: I'd know you anywhere

Why I picked it: The simple reason, the cover.  I have been in a creepy book mood recently and i'd know you anywhere was the perfect choice to continue my 'dark' phase.

Synopsis: Eliza Benedict cherishes her peaceful, ordinary suburban life. But her tranquility is shattered when she receives a letter from the last person she ever expects to hear from: Walter Bowman. There was your photo, in a magazine. I'd know you anywhere.

In the summer of 1985, when she was fifteen, Eliza was kidnapped by Walter. He had killed at least one girl and Eliza always suspected he had other victims as well. Now on death row for the rape and murder of his final victim, Walter seems to be making a heartfelt act of contrition. Having wondered why Walter had let her live, she cautiously makes contact with him.

Yet as Walter presses her for more and deeper contact, it becomes clear that he is after something greater than forgiveness. He wants Eliza to remember what really happened that long-ago summer. He wants her to save his life. And Eliza, who has worked hard for her comfortable life, will do anything to protect it—even if it means finally facing the terrible truth she's kept buried inside.

Type: Fiction

Quick Take: Highly Recommend - The author write a wonderful book, it's complicated, in a good way.  There are so many twists that you keep thinking, the story just keeps getting better.  Walters manipulating and creepy, Barbara is the stories connector and boy is she a game player and keeps you on your toes!  She's a piece of work!

This book wasn't too graphic for me, in fact there are no details of the events other than noting they happened.  This book is about today (20 years later) and how Walters actions impact several lives the last two months of his life. 

If I'm going to find something wrong with this book I might say it wraps up too neatly (which is the case with so many stories).
