Off the Dark Ledge by Angie Gallion is a psychological thriller. Stacy Linde is a wife and mother, living in a great neighborhood and enjoying a great life. When she loses her mother, Stacy’s life starts to unravel and secrets from the past coming flooding in. All of a sudden she discovers her whole life might just have been one big lie. So, who is Stacy? What nightmares terrorized her childhood to the extent that she locked it all out? And can life ever be the same again? Stacy goes searching for answers, and as the past and present collide with a sickening thud, Stacy must discover the truth, work out what is lies or lose everything in the process.

Off the Dark Ledge by Angie Gallion is a thrilling read, exceptionally well written and a real page-turner. I couldn’t put this down; once I started reading I was hooked until the very last page. Angie has created some very believable characters here with a story line that is also very real, written in a way that makes you feel as though you are inside the main protagonist’s head. She deals with the subjects of mental illness, abuse, adoption and more very well, weaving them cleverly into a story that will take you through a whole gamut of emotions. There is so much going on here that you won't want to blink in case you miss something important, a tiny detail that pulls the whole book together. Fabulous story, great author, I really enjoyed it. Highly recommended for fans of psychological thrillers and those who aren’t!
