The characters in this Brown book have a lot of backstory to them that other thrillers could be written about them, but all the while a readers attention will be drawn to what happens next for the main character. The alibi is one of my favourite Brown books because of the twist ending that was not on my list but it made almost perfect sense.

Really great of my favourite Sandra Brown books. I think she's a great mystery writer!
