The Dead Girl in 2A by Carter Wilson

Thank you to NetGalley and Sourcebooks for sending me an electronic copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.  



Jake Buchannan knows the woman sitting next to him on his business flight to Denver—he just can’t figure out how he knows her. Clara Stowe isn’t in Jake’s line of work and didn’t go to college with him. They have nearly nothing in common apart from a deep and shared certainty that they’ve met before. Despite their best efforts over a probing conversation, both struggle to figure out what circumstances could possibly have brought them together. Then, in a revelation that sends Jake reeling, Clara admits she’s traveling to the Colorado mountains to kill herself, and disappears into the crowded airport immediately after landing.

The Dead Girl in 2A is the story of what happens to Jake and Clara after they get off that plane, and the manipulative figure who has brought them together decades after they first met.  (Goodreads)


 Not exactly what I was expecting



So this book is not what I was expecting. I thought it would be more of a mystery, and it was a mystery, but more of the conspiracy theory kind that the murder mystery kind I usually read.

The story itself was interesting, if a little convoluted. I enjoyed both Jake and Clara and did care what happened to them. The this is not the type of book I normally read I was entertained. I did feel like the ending was a little rushed and would have liked a bit more of an explanation.

Overall Rating: 3.5
