She doesn't remember that night. But she will never be the same. One moment, Dahlia is a successful Harvard student; the next, she wakes up from a party, the victim of a brutal assault. Her life veers into a tailspin, and what's worse — her memory of the attack has been ripped away, leaving a cold rage in its wake. Now, years later, Dahlia is a tattooed paralegal suffering from PTSD and still haunted by that night. Until one day, a video surfaces online, and Dahlia sees her attack for the first time. Now she knows what happened to her. And she knows who is to blame. Her rage is no longer cold, but burning, red hot. And she is about to make everyone pay.

Block's emotional thriller opens with hints that paralegal Dahlia, a Harvard graduate, has come through a terrible trauma. She attends meetings of SOSâSurvivors of Suicideâbut what is her role there? As the details unfurl, romance buds between Dahlia and fellow group member James, and a fiercely protective sidekick nags her to rebuild her life. Readers learn that recovery won't be so easy for Dahlia, however, as she was the victim of a vicious sexual attack years earlier. How she and James deal with the assault's perpetrators forms a satisfying tale, although, at times, elaborate parts of the plan come together too neatly. Readers should be aware that Dahlia's attack is described in detail and forms a major part of the plot. Also notable is that James is autistic, and Block's portrayals of his successes in work and love, realistically described as not without their stumbles, are a welcome addition. An apt read in the #MeToo era, this also pairs nicely with Paullina Simons' The Girl in Times Square (2017), which also involves a couple-versus-world theme. Copyright 2018 Booklist Reviews.
