Black Out by Lisa Unger

June 2, 2008 - Amy Phelps
June is the official start of summer, so I'm kicking off the season with a new book a week that you should be sticking in a beach bag to take on vacation, or just relaxing with in the backyard along with a glass of sweet tea.

This week's is a mystery/thriller offering. Be sure to check back every Monday for a new book for adults, and every Thursday for a new book for kids or teenagers!

A woman clings to her sanity as she relives moments of her troubled past in Lisa Unger's "Black Out."

Ophelia March died the day Annie Powers was born. Ophelia, the abused and troubled daughter of a woman married to a convicted serial killer, had fled life with her stepfather with her stepbrother, Marlowe. What followed was a years-long blackout that ended with a private operative, Grey Powers, finding and rescuing Ophelia from MarloweƔs grasp, and her taking on a new identity, Annie.

Now, Annie has a child, Victory, and a loving husband, Grey. But ghosts from her past are coming to haunt her again, as memories of Marlowe are resurfacing. Is Annie losing her fragile grasp on sanity or is someone truly haunting her? This novel is a psychological thriller than challenges reality at every turn. It will leave you questioning what is real and what isn't.

"Black Out" is published by Shaye Areheart Books. It is $23 and 354 pages long.
