Jake Buchannan knows the woman sitting next to him on his business flight to Denver—he just can’t figure out how he knows her. Clara Stowe isn’t in Jake’s line of work and didn’t go to college with him. They have nearly nothing in common apart from a deep and shared certainty that they’ve met before. Despite their best efforts over a probing conversation, both struggle to figure out what circumstances could possibly have brought them together. Then, in a revelation that sends Jake reeling, Clara admits she’s traveling to the Colorado mountains to kill herself, and disappears into the crowded airport immediately after landing.
The Dead Girl in 2A is the story of what happens to Jake and Clara after they get off that plane, and the manipulative figure who has brought them together decades after they first met. Intensely creepy, beautifully written, and full of Carter Wilson’s signature whom-can-you-trust paranoia, this is a psychological thriller unlike any you’ve read before.
This was the first book I’ve read of Carter Wilson’s work and I have to say, I was pleasantly surprised at the amount of twists and suprises it had!
Although it wasn’t quite what I had in mind, I am glad I picked it up! Aside from wanting a little more umph from it, I thought it was a good story that unfolded naturally.
Thank you Netgalley, Carter, and Poisoned Press for the ARC of this fantastic book!
