A NovelBook - 2016
The inventiveness of A Visit from the Goon Squad meets the down-the-rabbit-hole suspense of The Girl on the Train in this chilling, pulse-racing thriller from an electrifying new writer. When the gleaming new Manderly Resort opens in twenty-four hours, Santa Barbara s exclusive cliff-top hotel will offer its patrons the ultimate in luxury and high-tech security. No indulgence has been ignored, no detail overlooked. But all the money in the world can t guarantee safety. As hotel manager Tessa and her employees ready the hotel for its grand opening, killers are in their midst. One by one, staff are picked off with ruthless precision. And before the night is over, as Tessa desperately struggles to survive, it will become clear that the strangest and most terrible truth at Manderly is simply this: someone is watching. With stunning ingenuity, Gina Wohlsdorf puts readers front and center as the elite resort becomes a house of horrors. Riveting to the final sentence, Security is fierce, wry, and impossible to put down. With a deep bow to the literary tradition of Stephen King, Edgar Allen Poe, and Daphne du Maurier, Wohlsdorf s razor-wire prose blitzes readers with quick twists, sharp turns, and gasp-inducing horror. Security is at once a shocking thriller, a brilliant narrative puzzle, and a moving, multifaceted love story unlike any other.
