Anything For You by Saul Black
Published November 12th 2019 by St. Martin's Press
On a hot summer night, a watchful neighbor locks eyes with an intruder and unwittingly alerts the police to a vicious crime scene next door: a lavish master bedroom where a man lies dead. His wife is bleeding out onto the hardwood floor, clinging to life.
The victim, Adam Grant, was a well-known San Francisco prosecutor--a man whose connection to Homicide detective Valerie Hart brings her face-to-face with a life she's long since left behind. Adam's career made him an easy target, and forensic evidence points towards an ex-con he put behind bars years ago. But while Adam's wife and daughter grapple with their tragic loss, Valerie uncovers devastating clues that point in a more ominous direction. Lurking in the shadows of the Grants' pristine life is a mysterious blonde who holds the key to a dangerous past.
As Valerie struggles to forge a new path for herself, the investigation forces her to confront the question: can we ever really leave our pasts behind?
If you are looking for a good thriller book this is the book for you. I’ve had it on my shelf for a little bit and picked it up a couple times only to move onto something else. I am now sorry that I waited so long to read this book. Anything for You is a book that I picked up, read, and am still talking about.
There are many triggers in this book that could make it difficult for readers. There is rape/incest/child abuse. But I felt that all of that lead to the story. The reason for the characters to be the way they are.
While it was harsh at times and difficult to read, I chose to not focus on that part of the story and instead try to figure out who the elusive blonde is. I had guesses and I have to be proud of myself for figuring it out before it was given away in the book. The twists and turns kept me doubting myself but I loved following all the clues.
