Blurry is written by Sherri Fulmer Moorer. A victim of domestic violence, Kirsten Chalmers awaits her ride outside the university. When her jealous and abusive ex-boyfriend, Danny Elkman, shows up instead, they argue before Danny attacks her. Kirsten narrowly manages to escape Danny’s clutches and speeds away in her car, before realizing that her brakes have been tampered with near a sharp bend. Unable to stop, she drives off a cliff. As police treat Kirsten’s death as suspicious, her friends believe it was merely a coincidence that Kirsten had argued with Danny that night. Cell phone records show that Kirsten had sent a voice mail to her former best friend, Rachel Shull, just three minutes before Kirsten’s death, but the message had been deleted before Rachel could play it. Rachel confronts new love interest, Layne, who had recently put his contact details into the phone. Layne responds to the accusation with an engagement ring. While Josh secretly betrays his best friends by helping Danny beat the arrest, the rest of Kirsten’s friends remain clueless when police write the murder off as an accidental death, but with more and more of the group acting guiltier every minute, it is not long before they realize that Kirsten may not be the only one on the killer’s list.
This is a murder mystery like none I have ever seen. Sherri Fulmer Moorer manages to keep a secure lid on the culprit until the very end, while easily keeping the story moving at a steady pace. While I am not a fan of domestic violence, this book managed to keep me intrigued, as each time I thought I had figured out who had killed Kirsten, a new clue pushed me in a whole new direction. Blurry is an extraordinary novel which held my interest the whole way through due to its realistic characters and dialogue. I recommend this book to those over 15 years of age who like to keep their grey matter in shape with a good old dose of ‘Whodunit!’ Angela Lansbury has got nothing on Sherri Fulmer Moorer, and I look forward to seeking out Sherri’s other titles.
