A roommate's mysterious disappearance and the tale of a dead girl form a haunting confluence of circumstances in Kubica's latest psychological thriller told from dual points of view...A master of suspense and dense plotting, Kubica still leads the pack when it comes to her genre.-- "Kirkus Reviews"
If you haven't read Mary Kubica yet, you need to start right this minute, with Don't You Cry. This riveting psychological thriller had me turning the pages at warp-speed and kept me rooting for its heroine, the completely relatable Quinn Collins, who sets out to uncover the truth about her seemingly perfect female roommate after the roommate mysteriously vanishes. The plot twists and turns more than Single White Female on steroids, and both women characters are crafted with emotional intelligence and extraordinary talent. Mary Kubica is a must-read for me, and she will be for you, too.-- "Lisa Scottoline, New York Times bestselling author"
The bitter Chicago wind sets the atmosphere for this chiller from the exceptional Kubica. Running parallel, Alex and Quinn tell the story over five endless days of hope and hopelessness. Sinister plots evolve into full-fledged nightmares. Just when everything seems clear, Kubica throws in a monkey wrench.-- "RT Book Reviews (4 stars)"
Told in alternating voices, the narrative simmers slowly to a tight, surprising ending. Fans of Kubica will enjoy her third stand-alone book, as will anyone who delights in the recent wave of terrific missing-persons novels.-- "Library Journal" --This text refers to the audioCD edition.

I enjoyed that you essentially get two books in one, with alternating chapters, until almost to the very end when the mystery collides and then it’s like WOW. Don’t You Cry is a suspense-laden novel that unfolds at a leisurely pace. Mary Kubica weaves the two storylines into a great read. While some of the plot is easy to figure out, there are plenty of unexpected twists and turns that will leave readers guessing until the novel’s very dramatic conclusion. A solid 3.5/4 stars
The best part about this book was the ending. I thought I had it figured out but I was totally wrong.
What I struggled with was the characters, or should I say the lack of connection that I felt towards them. In particular I found Quinn to be an awful person - smug, arrogant and really quite annoying. When I get to the end of a book I'm usually at a loss because I kind of miss the characters, but didn't feel the same way with Quinn, nor Alex.
I also felt that the author had developed quite a close relationship with her thesaurus as she wrote this book (overuse of the word apropos!)
Overall, not a bad read but this is far from her best work.
