93. The Other Side of the Door by Nicci French

I absolutely adore Nicci French books, which are writen by a London based husband-wife team. Their suspense is always great and I was so surprised to learn that a new book had been released. Normally I am on top of things like that. The Other Side of the Door was fantastic and I give it an A-.

From Amazon:
Who is more dangerous? An enemy? A friend? Or a lover?Bonnie Graham stands in the open door of her friend’s apartment. She is alone, except for the dead body lying in a pool of blood on the floor. What happened? What will Bonnie do now? Whom can she turn to? And what role has she played in the murderous events?Bonnie is a music teacher who has spent a long, hot summer in London rehearsing with a band to play at a friend’s wedding. It was supposed to be fun, but the band members find the complicated knots of their friendships—some old, some new—unraveling as the days themselves unwind. What was meant to be a summer of happiness, love, and music turns deadly as lovers betray one another, passions turn murderous, and friendship itself becomes a crime. Everyone tells lies. But is anyone prepared to tell the truth to uncover a murderer?Nicci French, the author of eleven internationally bestselling novels including Killing Me Softly, Catch Me When I Fall, and Losing You, delivers a sexy, intricate thriller about the temptation of secrets, the weight of lies, and the price of betrayal and suspicion.

Now I have been extremely busy lately, working two jobs and averaging 60 plus hours a week. I finished this book a couple of weeks ago and just haven't had the time to blog about it, but this ending is still sticking with me. It reminded me of an old Hitchcock film with such a twist and surprise that really left me hanging and wanting more. I thought the premise was really great too. If you haven't read a book by Nicci French, I would highly recommend it!
