In The Blood – a dark psychological thriller

A Rapid Review

InTheBloodIn the Blood by Lisa Unger

Publisher: Simon & Schuster Audio | January 2014
Format: Audio Download | 10 hours | Rating: 4½ stars
Audio Listening Level: Intermediate

Liar, liar, pants on fire . . . College senior Lana Granger has told so many lies about her past that the truth seems like a distant, cloudy nightmare. But she meets her match when she begins babysitting for a volatile, manipulative eleven-year-old boy.

A compelling, dark psychological thriller, In the Blood is told through college student Lana’s first-person narrative. Lana is a girl with a troubled past. Her father was convicted of murder – she barely remembers her parents and what happened the horrible night her mother died. With secrets of her own and a desire to get a fresh start in a place where no one knows her past, she is likely an unreliable narrator. When Luke, the child she babysits begins to act like a psychopath and her roommate disappears, the action accelerates.

This fast-paced, well-plotted novel never slows down and keeps the reader guessing straight through to the riveting conclusion and a series twists – one that I almost didn’t see coming.

Audio production:
The book is co-narrated by Gretchen Mol and Candace Thaxton who expertly bring the story to life, keeping the pace moving and the tension high.

    This book was on my best of 2014 list. I read it in book form, but I think I might listen to it on audio this year. It was very gripping.
