"In the leafy suburbs of Cambridge, the discovery of a murdered woman creates more questions than answers in this twisty psychological thriller."
Secrets and lies play a crucial role in the twisty psychological thriller, The Rich by Rachel Lynch.
This is Lynch’s first stand-alone thriller, after writing eleven novels featuring Dectective Kelly Porter, and two featuring Helen Scott of the Royal Military Police.
In this, the lives of many people are intertwined and connected, but they all have one thing in common: the psychologist Dr. Alex Moore. She is a successful psychologist in Cambridge, but she has some problems of her own. Mainly, her alcoholic husband and her three troubled teenagers, a son with a casual drug problem, another with bulimia, and a son harassed by bullies.
But these problems recede into the background when her friend, Monika Thorpe, is reported missing, and then found dead. Thorpe’s husband, Tony, Alex’s long-time friend from university days, is a prime suspect and Alex wants to help him prove his innocence.
The cast of characters is richly drawn and keeps the reader guessing until the end about who is responsible for Monika’s murder. Everyone is a suspect at some point. This novel might show how the other half live—mainly drugs, pools and international travel—but that lifestyle can also be deadly.
This is a page turner that keeps you guessing until the very final pages.
