The Night Before
by Wendy Walker
The Night before is a curious novel. It isn’t really awhodunnit in the accepted sense, although having said that there is an element of a crime or crimes having been committed with only a vague idea of who committed them. It is really an almost forensic study of the relationships between two sisters which takes the reader into dark and disturbing places as they uncover long-buried secrets when an internet date begins to look suspicious.
The story really revolves around Laura Lochner who has had an unfortunate love life. She has never met quite the right man. Devastated by the end of her last relationship, she flees her Wall Street job and New York City apartment for her sister’s home in the Connecticut suburb where she and her sister Rosie both grew up.
Though still haunted by the tragedy that’s defined her entire life, Laura is determined to take one more chance on love with a man she’s met on an Internet dating site.
Her sister Rosie Ferro has spent her life worrying about her unfortunate sister and because of this she has always walked an emotional tightrope. Laura’s return, under mysterious circumstances, has cast a shadow over Rosie’s peaceful life with her husband and young son – a shadow that grows darker as Laura leaves the house for her blind date
When Laura does not return home the following morning, Rosie fears the worst. She’s not responding to calls or texts, and she’s left no information about the man she planned to meet. As Rosie begins a desperate search to find her sister, she is not just worried about what this man might have done to Laura. She’s worried about what Laura may have done to him.
