Review of After She's Gone by Lisa Jackson

In this explosive new thriller, #1 New York Times bestselling author Lisa Jackson delves into the deep bond between two sisters and their shared dream that becomes a harrowing nightmare of madness, hatred and jealousy…

Cassie Kramer and her younger sister, Allie, learned the hazards of fame long ago. Together, they’d survived the horror of a crazed fan who nearly killed their mother, former Hollywood actress Jenna Hughes. Still, Cassie moved to L.A., urging Allie to follow. As a team, they’d take the town by storm. But Allie, finally free of small-town Oregon, and just that little bit more beautiful, also proved to be more talented—and driven. Where Cassie got bit parts, Allie rose to stardom. But now her body double has been shot on the set of her latest movie—and Allie is missing.

Police discover that the last call to Allie’s phone came from Cassie, though she has no recollection of making it. Instead of looking like a concerned relative, Cassie is starting to look like a suspect—the jealous sister who finally grew sick of playing a supporting role. As the tabloids go into a frenzy, Cassie ends up on a Portland psych ward. Is she just imagining the sinister figure who comes to her bedside, whispering about Allie—a visitor of whom there is no record? Is someone trying to help—or drive her mad? 

Convinced she’s the only one who can find Allie, Cassie checks herself out of the hospital. But a sudden slew of macabre murders— each victim masked with a likeness of a member of Cassie’s family—makes Cassie fear for her safety and her sanity. The only way to end the nightmare is to find out what really happened to Allie. And with each discovery, Cassie realizes that no one can be trusted to keep her safe—least of all herself…

My Review:
5 Stars

Lisa Jackson has yet to write a book that hasn’t drawn me in. This latest book is no different. After She’s Gone will have you on the edge of your seat and keeps you guessing until the end.
Cassie Kramer hasn’t had an easy life. She survived a crazed fan of her mother’s and then admitted herself to a psychiatric hospital after her famous sister goes missing. Shortly after her release things don’t get much better as people from her sister’s last movie start dying.

While trying to figure out what happened to her sister and maintain her innocence at the same time, Cassie also has to fend off lingering feelings for her husband. The man that she had at one point in time been madly in love with, but now tries to push aside as something had once happened.

This story takes you on a wild ride right up until the last page. Thoroughly enjoyed this latest publication from Lisa Jackson.
