You know a writer has talent when he or she can take a rather debatable premise-a woman becomes convinced her mother's disappearance has something to do with another woman's disappearance because both are named Beth-and turn it into a seriously spellbinding thriller. At some point in the story a third Beth is introduced, but to say more than that about the plot would be a disservice to the author. This is a tricky novel. Like a stage magician, Abbott often seems to be doing one thing when he's actually doing something else, and when we realize what he's been up to, we can't help but shake our heads in admiration. Abbott has a solid track record. His Sam Capra series has garnered well-deserved acclaim, and his stand-alones, including last year's Blame, have been consistently strong. The Three Beths continues his run as a thriller writer who can be counted on to deliver page-turning suspense. Copyright 2018 Booklist Reviews.
