That Night is a mixed mystery triller. It could have been an excellent book, and has the backbone of a strong story line. However, as a reader I felt let down in parts.
The story is written in the first person from the perspective of Toni Murphy. The character of Toni is well developed throughout the book, but not so the other characters in the story.
Toni spent 15 years in prison for the murder of her younger sister Nicole along with her boyfriend Ryan who was also convicted of the murder. However throughout the story you are convinced they didn't do it.
Shaunie is set up as the character who does murder Nicole, but the real question is why?
On release from jail, Toni and Ryan set out to prove their inonence and find the real killer.
The book reads more as a long teen book than an adult triller. Much of the book could have been edited out without affecting the overall story.
In summary, That Night by Chevy Stevens is an interesting read that you need to push through three quarters of to get to the really interesting and trilling parts.
