My Dead Friend Sarah- Peter Rosch

Disclaimer: I received this book free of charge via netgalley in exchange for an honest review

Synopsis (from amazon)

Mere months into recovery, Max, an alcoholic with twisted control issues, meets Sarah – the same woman that for years he’s habitually dreamt will die after a botched abduction. “Doing the next right thing,” a popular AA phrase he’s picked up in the rooms, means befriending Sarah long enough to warn her and hope she takes him seriously. But when Sarah falls in love with Max, his newly sober thinking drives him to choose his overly devoted wife, and he abandons Sarah – even when it condemns her to death. When Sarah goes missing, the NYPD suspects Max’s dream may have been a pre-crime confession. The truth, all of it, lurks inside of Max, but only by drinking again does he recapture the nerve and clarity vital to free his wife, sponsor, and himself from a life imprisoned by lies.


It’s taken me a little while to get around to actually writing this review so I don’t remember the story perfectly clearly, however I will do my best.

I enjoyed this story, it was pretty easy read but I don’t think it lost any thrill or quality from that. The chapters were split up into chapters narrated by Max and by Sarah so you could see two sides of the story. That is up until the moment of Sarah’s disappearance. It was quite clever how Sarah’s voice just stopped. It makes the reader sure that Max’s conviction that Sarah is dead is correct, but you still hope he is wrong.

You really feel as if you know the characters, and as such there is a certain level of inevitability.
