Fiction, Horror


Rating: 4 out of 5.


A woman on the run finds refuge in a motel at the edge of the woods, with plenty of vacancies. Check in for the night with New York Times bestselling author Lisa Unger.

Eve has a fake ID, a .38, and a violent lover receding in the rearview mirror. He’ll never find her at the isolated motel, and its kindly manager is happy to ease her fears. But if Eve is the only guest, whom does she keep hearing on the other side of the wall? Eve won’t get a good night’s rest until she finds out.

My Take:

This is one of seven short stories in Amazon’s Dark Corners series. As usual, Lisa Unger is a queen of suspense. Eve’s fears could be felt throughout the story, and I never knew who to trust. The friendly hotel manager seemed too good to be true, but I was not expecting the twist ending.

Overall, this is a great short read. Though it’s not my favorite of the Dark Corners series, it is in my top three.
