The Trap

by Melanie Raabe

Linda’s sister Anna was murdered. Her killer was never caught, but Linda saw his face. Now, all these years on, she’s just seen him again. On TV.

He has become a well-known reporter, and Linda—a famous novelist and infamous recluse—has a plan: she writes a thriller about a woman who is murdered, her killer never caught.

When the book is published, she agrees to give just one interview. At home. To the one person who knows more about the case than she does.


Staff Reviews

Melanie Raabe's debut book is just plain addictive. It has a fantastic premise: a writer witnesses her sister's murder, and catches a glimpse of the murder's face. Fast forward 10+ years, and the writer has become a complete recluse-she can't leave her home due to crippling anxiety. One day, while watching TV, she sees her sister's murder. She is soon inspired to set a trap for him: write a crime novel describing her sister's murder, and lure him to her. The plot of this book is A+, and the writing is even better.
