Don’t Turn Around


Author: Jessica Barry

Publisher: HarperCollins

Year: 2020


Synopsis: Midnight. Cait Monaghan and Rebecca McRae are on a desolate road that slices through the New Mexican desert. They've never met before tonight.  Both have secrets to protect. Both of their lives are in danger.  

When a truck pulls up fast behind them, they assume it's punk teenagers or run-of-the-mill road rage, but it soon becomes clear that whoever is driving the truck is hunting them for sport—and they are out to draw blood.  

As the miles unspool and the dangers mount, the pasts they've worked so hard to keep buried have come back to haunt them.  Someone wants one of them dead. But which one?  And given the lives the two women have been leading, that someone could be almost anyone.

If Cait and Rebecca are going to survive, they'll have to learn to trust one another—and themselves. But trust is a costly business, and they’ve both paid the price before. 

Creepy suspense! Cait and Rebecca are on a middle of the night road trip from Lubbock to Albuquerque. It’s desolate, dark and there’s no cell service. A truck with an unknown driver is following them and then tries to run them off the road. Is it a random stranger or is one of them a specific target? 

The women’s stories unfold throughout the course of the book. I’ll just say they both have secrets. I don’t want to give anything away.

Jessica Barry keeps the tension ratcheted up as the road trip goes on and the women find themselves in more and more danger. The pacing is quick and the characters are interesting. 

I really liked Freefall, the author’s debut novel. She doesn’t disappoint with this book. This is a creepy thriller that will make you think twice next time you see headlights in your getting a little too close.
