BOOK REVIEW: THE REUNION
A psychiatric hospital in Edinburg known as The Unit is a place where troubled teens can be treated. The teens had a variety of problems with no case being identical.
Now many years later, the ex-patients are adults who are trying to lead a normal life and forget about the past. One of these ex-patients is Innes Haldane. She received a call on her answering machine from another former patient named Isabella Velasco. Isabella left a message indicating that she needed to talk to Innes and left her phone number. Innes did not return her call.
Innes happened to be scanning the newspaper when she spotted a headline about a swimming pool death. As Innes continued to read the article, she noticed the victim was identified as Isabella Velasco. Innes was very upset to think she did not return Isabella's call.
Isabella's death was ruled a suicide. Innes also learned about the death of another former patient. Then a third former patient almost died in a fire that killed her family. What was going on? Innes believes that somehow these deaths are related and she must find out how. It just didn't seem possible that the two deaths were a suicide.
Innes believes a killer is stalking the former patients and the only way to help them is to contact the others before the killer gets to them first.
Sue Walker does an excellent job of building the suspense from the very beginning of the book. She uses a method of flashing back and forth in time, which makes the story very interesting because the reader will feel they are going along on this suspenseful journey. This book is well written and the reader will be anxiously turning the pages to find out what happens next. This book is highly recommended.
