Five teens living in a horrible foster home did a terrible thing. Twenty-five years later, they've gone their separate ways and have seemingly escaped from the dark secret in their past. But now, one of them has been murdered and it is clear that someone wants the rest of them dead as well. Donnie - a former rock star, Nico - a reality TV producer and Artemis - a wealthy tech mogul as well as the lone woman, Jenna who has had a dubious past and is now a happily married stepmom. Not one but two young, beautiful and cunning women (identical twins) have been hired to get rid of them all. But who is behind this plot? The former friends find themselves back at the now shuttered foster home Savior House in Chestertown, Pennsylvania to try and stay alive.
What Have We Done is author Alex Finlay's third novel. (This is actually his pseudonym - he has written other books as Anthony Franze, which are legal thrillers.) Finlay's first two books were everything I look for in a thriller. This latest is a highly effective thriller even though the first two books ranked higher for me. The book’s fast pace was appealing, and I found myself wanting to keep reading to see it all come together. It's more action-packed than the mystery thrillers I normally read, and it was a bit over-the-top, but I'd recommend checking it out for its solid twists and turns. Finlay remains a must-read author.
