Charlotte was an interesting woman. I enjoy complex characters with some kind of tragedy or hardship in their past. Her struggle to regain her sense of self was a hard one, and it’s easy to see and understand why she did some of the things she did. It was hard to see her realize her mistakes later on, however, because you know she was coming from a place of honesty.

The duo of detectives – Wolcott and Silvestri – were great. You can tell they’re pals as well as co-workers, even if they do annoy each other once in a while. They had to make tough choices and did everything they could to find the truth. Also, I both loved and hated the way one of them would discover something and then their POV would end so you didn’t know what they’d found until later. It was both evil and genius at the same time.

From the very beginning, the premise of this novel had me hooked. I’m not sure how I’d cope if some random person had me listed as their emergency contact. In Case of Emergency was a surprising thriller that caught me off guard with who the real bad guy was in the end. Every time I thought I knew what was going on, I discovered how wrong I am. I really hope that we get to see more of Detectives Wolcott and Silvestri in the future, I thought they were a great team.
