My rating: 5 of 5 stars
The Rumor had me gripped from start to finish. I was literally sitting on the edge of my seat in anticipation of what would happen next.
It all starts with a rumor… a notorious killer, Sally McGowan, is reportedly resides in a quiet, friendly little town just a few miles from NYC. Joanna finds herself obsessed with an old case, and she shares the findings with her partner, a freelance journalist who decides to write a book regarding the child killer. An innocent rumor makes a huge impact on the town and its residents, and Joanna finds herself and her son in danger. A couple of threatening tweets and photoshopped photo are only the beginning of a horrific discovery she is about to uncover.
The Rumor is clever and twisted and completely engrossing. I haven’t been this satisfied with a book in a while. I would like to thank the publisher, Ballantine Books, for allowing me a copy of this book via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
