Book Spotlight: The Remains by Vincent Zandri

Due to a late arrival of The Remains by Vincent Zandari, I am unable to review the book for my tour stop so I have decided instead to shine a spotlight on this mystery which I am very much looking forward to reading! Look forward to a review in the coming weeks as I delve into Zandari's creepy thriller which from the summary reminds me slightly of Laura Lippman's I'd know you anywhere, which I loved.

Summary from Goodreads:

Thirty years ago, teenager Rebecca Underhill and her twin sister Molly were abducted by a man who lived in a house in the woods behind their upstate New York farm. They were held inside that house for three horrifying hours, until making their daring escape. Vowing to keep their terrifying experience a secret in order to protect their mother and father, the girls tried to put the past behind them. And when their attacker was hunted down by police and sent to prison, they believed he was as good as dead. Now, it s 30 years later, and with Molly having passed away from cancer, Rebecca, a painter and art teacher, is left alone to bear the burden of a secret that has only gotten heavier and more painful with each passing year. But when Rebecca begins receiving some strange anonymous text messages, she begins to realize that the monster who attacked her all those years ago is not dead after all. He s back, and this time, he wants to do more than just haunt her. He wants her dead.
I admit I'm also a fan of stories involving twin sisters since I have one myself, and the mix of technology and old-fashioned horror in The Remains was instantly appealing. You can visit Zandari's website to learn more about the book or order your own copy.
