I’m not usually a big crime drama fan, but this one sucked me in right away with a unique and intriguing premise. Rachel Holloway works at a floundering newspaper with the bright idea to boost readership by starting a podcast focused on a true unsolved crime story: what happened to little Molly Forster, the 12-year old only survivor of the massacre of her family twelve years earlier? Rachel panics, and does everything she can to sabotage the podcast, because she has a secret: she is Molly. And she’s been hiding ever since, terrified that the killer would finish what he started.
I had a few minor logical issues with the story–like why run rather than go to the police? why not at least tell the people closest to her who she was?–but most of those were resolved as the story went on. Totally gripping!
My rating: *****
