In this gripping psychological thriller, Caroline Thompson Googles herself and discovers the shocking details of a past she doesn’t remember.
In this fast-paced suspense, a group of privileged suburban moms amuse themselves by Googling everyone in town, digging up dirt to fuel thorny gossip. Caroline Thompson, devoted mother of two, sticks to the moral high ground and attempts to avoid these women. Sheâ€™s relieved to hear her name appears only three times, citing her philanthropy. Despite being grateful that she has nothing to hide, a delayed pang of insecurity prods Caroline to Google her maiden nameâ€”which none of the others know.
The hits cascade like a tsunami. Carolineâ€™s terrified by what she reads. An obituary for her sister, JD? Thatâ€™s absurd. With every click, the revelations grow more alarming. They canâ€™t be right. Sheâ€™d know. Caroline is hurled into a state of paranoiaâ€”upending her blissful family lifeâ€”desperate to prove these allegations false before someone discovers theyâ€™re true.
The disturbing underpinnings of The Memory Box expose a story of deceit, misconceptions, and an obsession for control. With its twists, taut pacing, and psychological tenor, Natiello’s page turning suspense cautions:
Be careful what you search for.
