The Past and Present Converge in This Intriguing Thriller
Over twenty-five years ago, Jenna, Nico and Donnie stayed in a group homed Saviour House. The home was anything but safe. After the disappearance of two girls and several abuse and neglect complaints, the home was shut down. The three were split up, but not before forging a bond that would link them forever.
Despite their troubled past, each had a reasonably successful career. One had worked in security for the government, one was an aging rock star, and one was a reality TV producer. Now someone wants them all dead. To survive, the trio will have to reunite and revisit their childhood nightmares.
WHAT HAVE WE DONE is an action thriller where the past and present converge Jenna, Nico, and Donnie's lives have somehow managed to rise above the horrors of their past. But now, someone is threatening each of them, and when another close friend from the Savior House is murdered, the three are devastated.
The story is intriguing and action-packed. The writing is fair, but I was a little tripped up by quick and confusing transitions between past and present. The character development and storyline grew stronger as the book progressed, but the beginning was a little fuzzy.
I loved Alex Finley’s 2022 thriller The Night Shift, particularly his character development. Thanks to Netgalley and St Martin’s Press Minotaur Books for an advance reading copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
