The Big Thrill Recommends: WHO TO BELIEVE by Edwin Hill

Recommendation by Robyn Bonavita

Book Cover Image: Who to BelieveEdwin Hill is a master at making you think one thing and then shocking you with another. There were many twists and turns in WHO TO BELIEVE, and I literally never knew who to believe. A small town, a group of “friends,”—what could possibly go wrong? Well, it turns out that so much can go wrong when the first body is found. Everyone has a motive, and everyone has the opportunity. But who lacks the moral compass to allow them to do this? What stands out the most is Hill’s ability to create an environment that is so toxic yet so impossible to leave.

While all these characters were deeply flawed, their actions made total sense to who they were and always felt completely authentic. The switching of POVs offered a view into this whole world and left me reeling at times with how the same situation could be seen so differently. One POV was my favorite, and I think once you read the novel, you’ll know exactly which one. Each character had a completely distinct voice, and Hill successfully made Chloe sound like a 13-year-old. WHO TO BELIEVE is a page-turner, one that is impossible to put down. I’ll definitely be looking for more books by Edwin Hill.
