Plagued with guilt for not stopping for a stranded driver who was later reported murdered, Cass struggles with an increasingly compromised memory before she begins receiving silent phone calls she believes are from the killer.
The Breakdown is the next chilling, propulsive novel from B. A. Paris, the New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of Behind Closed Doors and Bring Me Back.
“Even harder to put down than Behind Closed Doors…with two in a row, Paris moves directly to the thriller A-list.”—Booklist (starred review)

It’s a dangerous road to be on in the middle of a storm and, as her husband keeps reminding her, Cass might have been hurt herself if she’d pulled over.
But since then, Cass has been forgetting every little thing. Where she left the car, if she took her pills, even the alarm code. The only thing she can’t forget is that woman. And now that Cass keeps receiving silent phone calls, she can’t quite shake the feeling that someone’s watching her…
