The Woman in the Fifth by Douglas Kennedy
Then, I got into it. It was a thriller and a kind of a crime novel and I was clipping along wondering how our fearless hero would get out of this jam and reunite with his daughter when wham, the author pulled the rug right out from under me. (spoiler!) I did not expect the twist into the supernatural at all. I really hated it after that. I kept thinking, how can he pull this off? I kept waiting for it to be a joke or explained, but no. It was just a weird kind of hell in which the main character found himself.
Anyway, like a thriller that's not really a thriller? Try this book. Or just wait for the movie which I understand is due out this fall.
