The Lost Night begins with Lindsay by chance meeting a former friend from ten years ago. The last time they saw each other was the night of her best friend Edie’s suicide.
In 2009 Lindsay was a blackout very angry drunk who partied and fought with a tight group of friends. One night her best friend Edie kills herself and leaves a suicide note. Devastated she walks away from those friends and gets her life together. She stops drinking and becomes a successful magazine fact checker with great friends…a good life.
Until this chance meeting. When Lindsay discovers her memory (as much as she can remember of it) of the night of Edie’s death differs with what may have actually happened. She begins to have flashbacks of that time when she was friends with Edie. She decides to try and piece together what actually happened that night by using her resources as a fact checker as well as finding those friends from her previous life.
Could it be possible Edie did not kill herself? Slowly Lindsay starts to realize that not only could it be possible, but she could be an actual murderer. How can she be sure? How does she not start to slip into her old habits which got her into this mess. Can you ever forgive your friends for their past mistakes and especially, can you ever forgive yourself.
The Lost Night is a fast paced story which weaves in and out of 2009 and now. The story lines are all incredible and the characters believable. This is Bartz first book and I cannot wait to see what she has in store for her next!
