Book Review: Escape the Night

Peter Carey was born into privilege during the McCarthy era, when the paranoia of Washington infected his parents’ house and seeped into Peter’s bones. His father was so obsessed with the family publishing business that he never had time for his son. Even as a teenager, Peter barely knew his father—and one dark night, an accident on a lonely road ensured he never would.

Peter’s memories of that horrific night have been erased by amnesia, but decades later he is still tortured by nightmares. When a strange conspiracy threatens to steal his company and take his life, he will have to remember . . . and find the key to survival that is locked in his own mind.

I really hate it when the blurbs that are written about a book at totally wrong.  Peter was the center of his father's world up until the car accident when he was six years old.  Peter was in the car but is unable to remember the crash or anything that day.  This loss of memory is effecting his current life and if he can't recover it, it will effect his company, the woman he loves and his life.

I found ESCAPE THE NIGHT to be one of those page turners that I just couldn't put aside.  It is very tightly written with the tension building up slowly page by page.  There was only one thing that threw me out of the story briefly and that was when the woman who Peter is seeing has a name change.  She started out as Ciano and then became Noelle Ciano. 

Peter is a great character.  Very intelligent and caring young man who is afraid to love since he lost his father in an accident that he can't even remember.  All he has left is a reoccurring nightmare which he has just been living with but he isn't willing to force Noelle to live with him waking up screaming. 

Incredible story that will have you on pins and needles to the very end.  I highly recommend it to any of my readers who enjoy suspense.

*** I received this book at no charge from NetGalley in exchange for a fair and honest review.  All opinions expressed within are my own
