The Day I Died: A Novel

The Day I Died: A Novel - Lori Rader-Day

A special thank you to Edelweiss and William Morrow for an ARC in exchange for an honest review.

We meet Anna Winger, a handwriting analyst with a messy past, who is called upon to use her talent on a high-profile case in the small town that she is currently living in. As a handwriting expert, she is able to identify the writer's personality traits and psychological state. Some believe in her craft and use her to profile individuals, while others consider her to be a charlatan. For Anna, her profession allows her to keep people at arms-length and keep her anonymity while supporting her son.

She immerses herself into the case of a missing boy. Unfortunately for her, the case awakens elements of her past, things she's tried to keep hidden, and she is unable to outrun it any longer.

This is my first book by Rader-Day and it won't be my last. I enjoyed this story and would like to read more about Anna. She is a well-writen character with an interesting talent, this would make a great series.
