Meredith Price is the luckiest woman alive. Her husband, Andrew, is a charming and successful financial broker. She has two lovely stepchildren and is living in affluence in a mountain resort town. After three years of marriage, Meredith’s life has become predictable. Until the day she disappears.
Her car has been discovered in a grocery store parking lot—purse and phone undisturbed on the passenger seat, keys in the ignition, no sign of struggle, and no evidence of foul play. It’s as if she vanished into thin air.
It’s not like Meredith to simply abandon her loved ones. And no one in this town would have reason to harm her. When her desperate sister, Greer, arrives, she must face a disturbing question: What if no one really knows Meredith at all? For Greer, finding her sister isn’t going to be easy…because where she’s looking is going to get very, very dark.
I recently purchased and read “The Memory Watcher” by this author and it was just the type of psychological thriller I love. Addictive, twisty and with divisive well drawn characters.
So I was interested to see if Minka Kent could do that again and the answer is, yes indeed she can. The Thinnest Air is a fast paced page turner told from the alternating points of view of two sisters – One missing, one searching. A clever and unpredictable mystery element, together with the intriguing sibling relationship these two share gave this story a lot of heart and soul.
Minka Kent writes layers well, your perception of the characters changes and whilst she doesn’t give you too many suspects they all ebb and flow as the story goes, you are not sure what the truth is until the reveal.
I read this in one sitting, spending a couple of hours in the company of Meredith and Greer and it was an excellent read first page to last.
