Trust Me

While the protagonist is not particularly realistically drawn (her actions serve the author's needs rather than grow organically out of her character), this slow-building thriller that examines "truth" and who gets to define it is bound to be a late-summer hit among readers looking for twisty stories with reverses and feints.
