Wrong Alibi

audio, ebook, print (368 pages)
psychological thriller
We start off with Petie working on a wildlife camp, ten years after she went on the run with a new identity, we quickly see her working with a team. She's well respected and worked hard, but she doesn't cater to rich people's egos. It makes her an enemy, who she discounts because she's trying to find the real killer. I was drawn into her present-day story, as well as the extended flashback in part 2 of the book. Evie was drawn into the wrong crowd, wanted to turn her life around, then was caught in a web as the scapegoat. Her life wasn't the only one ruined, and she hoped to eventually get justice for the terrible crimes.

The suspense really hooked me in, and I loved being on this journey with Petie. There were asides with Zone that made me understand his motivation as well, but it still threw me for a loop when his path crossed Petie's in the manner that it did. The final quarter of the book flew quickly, and I kept turning pages until the very end, nearly being late for work!
