Evelyn thought everything in her life was fine. She had a good kid, a successful husband, and a nice house. She gets a late night call one night that her husband has been in a car accident and she needs to come pick him up immediately. She can’t call the cops or tell anyone about it. She thinks it’s a little bit weird, and when she gets there, he’s not alone. He says his patient freaked out at the office and he had to take her home. She’s a little high on the sleeping pills he prescribed her, so she doesn’t question much that night.
Well of course the story keeps changing the more information that comes out. Evelyn finds out pretty quickly that a teenage girl was killed on the road that night, and she just knows that her husband’s car accident was related. He tells her that his “crazy” patient was driving the car, and he was having an affair with her, and he doesn’t want her to get in trouble. Or for that matter, he doesn’t want to get himself in trouble for an affair with a patient.
Evelyn goes along with most of it because she doesn’t want to blow up her cushy life. She gets really angry and curious though, and goes after the woman’s husband. She basically falls in love with him instantly and shockingly it doesn’t end well. She goes through a lot of crap but ends up OK in the very end.
I’d give this 3.5 stars because it really did keep me guessing at the full truth until the end.
