The Price by Alexandra Sokoloff

Plagued by nightmares and hallucinations, a mayoral hopeful thinks he can trust a hospital counselor, but when his cancer-stricken daughter has a miraculous recovery, he starts to question his very sanity.

My only beef with The Price
is that I wish it were longer! I devoured this slim, suspenseful volume over the course of a trip to Brooklyn and back with Superfast Baby asleep in the mei tai. Yummy, yummy, yummy.

Like with Alex Sokoloff’s The Harrowing, you think you know where this is going, but you’d be so very wrong. She has a great knack for creepy set pieces and imagery that’s so creepy it’s like she dredged it from your own subconscious. Like, get out of my head and stop scaring me already.

I enthusiastically recommend this book for anyone who enjoys thrillers, who wants a compelling read that will make the world disappear for a few hours. Can’t wait to see what she comes up with next.
