THE LAST THING I SAW by Alex Sinclair is a gripping psychological thriller told in before and after. We know something happened to Emma Turner but, we are thrown bits and pieces to put together to learn the full story. Emma Turner seems to have a normal life. She has a husband, Darren and a teenage son, Jayden. They are a regular family with their ups and downs. Why then, does Emma Turner wake up in a psychiatric hospital with no memory of how or why she got there?
Through therapy sessions, Emma knows that something traumatic has happened to her but, her mind has shut down to protect itself. She seems to have had a psychotic breakdown brought on by post traumatic stress disorder. Little by little she starts to remember what happened on the day that changed her entire life.
The story really builds on the suspense. I was glued to the pages right from the start and I have to say, I had a really tough time trying NOT to flip the pages to the end of the story to find out what really happened! Alex Sinclair really knows how to write a psychological suspense. I was pretty much kept on my toes trying to figure out what the catalyst was that landed Emma in the hospital. Right when I thought I knew the answers, there was a twist that shot my theory down. I found that the mystery and suspense really kept me engaged and invested in the story.
Emma was such a well thought out character and you could feel all of the emotions she was going through. You could almost feel her hurt at not being able to see her family and wondering why her family were never there to visit her while in the hospital. You can sense the inner turmoil she is going through and it made me feel sympathetic towards her character. I wanted her to remember and at the same time I was hoping that the memory of the night in question didn’t break her even more.
All in all, THE LAST THING I SAW is one of the best psychological thrillers I have read in a very long time. It is a slow build up character driven story with just the right amount of twists that will blow you away when the truth finally comes out. Alex Sinclair really knows how to build up on the suspense and keep you guessing to the very end.
