The Row by J.R. Johansson
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Riley has an unusual relationship with her father. Her dad was convicted of murder twelve years earlier and she has been visiting him once a week. He is now four weeks away from his execution date and it looks like he has exhausted all of his appeals. He tells Riley that he really did commit the murders, but then tries to take it back and say he just wanted to make her not trust him. Riley is determined to figure out the truth and when another murder happens, everyone is wondering if her father is really innocent or was it a copycat.
The Row is a psychological thriller that will constantly have readers reevaluating the next plot twist. Johansson creatively inserted hints within each development, yet readers will be relentlessly surprised with the actual outcomes. As I approached the end I thought it was all complete and then another event ended the story. This is a great stand-alone story that will give readers an escape from reality.
