Rearview Mirror Review

I have always read Stephanie Black’s novels with some hesitation. Perhaps it’s how well she writes her thrillers—compacted with such description to make you believe you are there in the room watching things unfold. Yet determined as ever to put my fears aside I curled up with her latest Rearview Mirror.

What a delight. Fear lurked in every corner, but instead of pulling the covers over my head I was presented with a gift. Stephanie distracted me with her whose-done-it scenario. I felt as if I was playing the game Clue, crossing off possible suspects only to add a new one to my list. Although I still winced at the gory scenes, jumped at the unexpected turns, I was captivated by my role to help solve the mystery.

In perfect fashion the story captivated you until the very end. Bravo, Ms. Black for trilling us readers with the best mystery I’ve ever read. I would highly recommend Rearview Mirror to all—squeamish or not.


  1. I love suspense novels and I have not read this author or this book.

    Thanks for the review!

  2. This one sounds great! I haven't read her yet, but now I want to!!

  3. This author is new to me, I'll have to look for this book.

  4. When it comes to movies I like thrillers and horror movies and suspense but for some reason I have not really gotten into reading those types of stories and I honestly don't know why. I guess I will just have to give it a try. :) Thanks for the review of Rearview Mirror!


  5. As Clue is the absolute best game in the world, now I've gotta have this book.
