“A perfectly paced, addictive thriller with a vicious twist.” —Paula Hawkins

From bestselling nonfiction author Abbott Kahler comes a spellbinding fiction debut: an unusual form of amnesia upends the lives of identical twins, forcing them to face the indelible, dangerous shadow of the past.

When Kat Bird wakes up from a coma, she sees her mirror image: Jude, her twin sister. Jude’s face and name are the only memories Kat has from before her accident. As Kat tries to make sense of things, she believes Jude will provide all the answers to her most pressing questions:

Who am I?
Where am I?
What actually happened?

Amid this tragedy, Jude sees an irresistible opportunity: she can give her sister a brand-new past, one worlds away from the lives they actually led. She spins tales of an idyllic childhood, exotic travels, and a bright future.

But if everything was so perfect, who are the mysterious people following Kat? And what explains her uncontrollable flashes of violent anger, which begin to jeopardize a sweet new romance?

Duped by the one person she trusted, Kat must try to untangle fact from fiction. Yet as she pulls at the threads of Jude’s elaborate tapestry, she has no idea of the catastrophe she’s inviting. At stake is not just the twins’ relationship, but their very survival.

Intensely creepy and beautifully written, Abbott Kahler’s Where You End is an unforgettable tale of intrigue, revenge, and the quest for redemption.

I recommend going in blind with this one. Also, expect more literary thriller than psychological thriller. Don't let that put you off. The story is deliciously creepy and will induce actual goosebumps. The authors use of scene and language building is razor sharp and executes the plot twists with a fine hand for hairpin turns. This is the twist everyone will be talking about next winter! Thank you NetGalley and the publisher for this great read

Past and present timelines.....Mother issues.....Amnesia.....Twins.....a past life with characteristics of a cult.

It really doesn't get any better than this book. I loved the way the past weaved into the present but poor Kat doesn't remember the past due to an accident. She has to depend on what her twin feeds to her. But we all know that when someone else is building your memories they can morph them into they truth they want you to believe. The path for Kat to find the truth is one that you are happy to hold her hand on, even through the mountains and valleys.

"Where You End" was a phenomenal reading experience. It introduced the amnesia trope in a unique and captivating way, weaving an intricate narrative that had me hooked from the very first page. What's even more astonishing is how it swiftly evolves into a cult book, and I certainly didn't see that coming. The ending was a perfect climax of the intricate plot threads, leaving me with a sense of satisfaction and a longing for more. I never wanted to stop reading, and "Where You End" is a remarkable gem that I'll be recommending to all.
