Named One of the Most Anticipated Thriller Novels Of 2017 by Bustle!


If you can’t trust yourself, who can you trust?

Cass is having a hard time since the night she saw the car in the woods, on the winding rural road, in the middle of a downpour, with the woman sitting inside—the woman who was killed. She’s been trying to put the crime out of her mind; what could she have done, really? It’s a dangerous road to be on in the middle of a storm. Her husband would be furious if he knew she’d broken her promise not to take that shortcut home. And she probably would only have been hurt herself if she’d stopped.

But since then, she’s been forgetting every little thing: where she left the car, if she took her pills, the alarm code, why she ordered a pram when she doesn’t have a baby.

The only thing she can’t forget is that woman, the woman she might have saved, and the terrible nagging guilt.

Or the silent calls she’s receiving, or the feeling that someone’s watching her…

You won't be able to put down B. A. Paris's The Breakdown, the next chilling, propulsive novel from the New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of Behind Closed Doors.


  • Not Sure About The Breakdown

    By Dr.Mrs.Afi
    This book was good...after reading the first 400 pages. I kept waiting for the shoe to drop. There was too much pretense for too long. When things started coming together clearly, it seemed rushed. Everything fell into place too smoothly; no more mystery. The text messages were too perfect, boring, no suspense. I just wanted to get through them to the good stuff. Behind Closed Doors was far better crafted as a thriller.
  • Totally predictable

    Big disappointment- her previous book was so much better.
  • Very Good Read

    By ItsBelle
    I read BA Paris' other book, Behind Closed Doors, so when I saw that the author wrote another one I had to read it. It did not disappoint. A real page-turner. I didn't figure what was actually going on until it was on top of me. I usually don't. But I did like how Cass resolved the whole thing. I don't want to give anything away but read this book. You'll be glad you did!
  • Booooring

    By Andrealynnstuartfarris
    It started out interesting and then became dreadfully boring and predictable. I skimmed several chapters just so I could see how it ended.
  • Slow and predictable

    By luvnikki
    I really wanted to like this book but storyline was very predictable and pace just too slow. Resolution at end was way too rushed- this book was a let down for me.
  • The Break Down

    By Artymusician
    Outstanding book!! I finished in one sitting but admit I had to read ahead to the last 30 pages because I could not stand the suspense! It was such a good book-- I wrote my first book review after reading Behind Closed Doors, and often think of that scary scenario. This was also suspenseful and thrilling. Greed and feelings of entitlement cause all kinds of suffering and emotional turmoil! The moral of this story seems to be "don't tell anyone" about your finances and inheritances!!

    I really wanted to like this book, but the French students conveniently giving her the phone was lame.
  • Luv'd

    I was lucky to receive this book as my 2nd early read & review for St. Martin Press. Luv'd this book. I liked even better than BA Paris' debut, Behind Closed Doors which was super good. After Cass takes a shortcut home thru the woods on a dark & stormy night, strange things begin to occur & paranoia sets in. How can you make your loving husband believe U. How can U trust yourself when everything U know is wrong. Your world is crumbling around U. Medication is knocking U out. Will this ever end? Released 7/18/17. Gotta read! @BAParksauthor #thebreakdown
  • Did not live up to my exepctations

    The Breakdown is B.A. Paris's follow up to her amazing debut novel, Behind Closed Doors, which is one of my favorite thrillers. With Behind Closed Doors being such a great read, I went into The Breakdown with high expectations that I' sad to say weren't met. Cass tended to get on my nerves more than anything and I had no desire to keep reading. I actually didn't touch my Kindle for 3 days, which is extremely unusual for me. I still plan on reading B.A. Paris's next book with hopes that I enjoy it more than The Breakdown.  I voluntarily received an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review.
