Great character study of a woman coming to terms with her drinking, with a little intrigue thrown in. This was the 'ordinary person, very extraordinary conundrum' trope and I kept waiting for the twist. When it came, I was in fact surprised, so that was a plus. But even so, was ultimately left feeling just slightly let down. Not sure why, because I generally like this author's work very much.

P.S. I listened to this one on Audible and it was well-narrated, but made me realize that if authors can get their books read to them, they should. Chris Bohjalian uses the word 'moreover' in excess.

10.0% "Who wouldn't be intrigued by the premise? An habitual blackout drunk wakes up to the corpse of her latest hook-up in bed next to her. She doesn't think she killed him, but can't be sure. So, rather than report the murder to the authorities, she leaves and tries to forget it didn't happen. But not only can't she forget, the murder loosens other memories. As usual for this author, great character development."
