An improbable cartoonish plot and paper-thin unlikeable characters makes What Have We Done a miss for me.
Five teenagers meet in a horrendous group home and do something drastic to save themselves from its horrors. Twenty-five years later, all five have achieved various levels of success: a judge, a tech billionaire, an aging rock star, a reality show producer, and (I kid you not) a retired assassin. Now, psychotic female identical twins are killing, or attempting to kill them, using outlandish methods like blowing up a mine and shoving a person from a cruise ship. The twins have a unbelievable backstory of meeting accidentally in college after being separated at birth because…why not?
I enjoyed the complex plots and believable characters of this author’s previous two books, The Night Shift and Every Last Fear. However, What Have We Done is not recommended. It seems almost like a parody of thrillers. 2 disappointed stars.
Thanks to Minotaur Books and NetGalley for a digital review copy of the book.
