Sandra Block: What Happened That Night


What Happened That Night Sandra Block Book Review

 

Vengeance

Dahlia is her name but she is no longer a blooming flower. That part of her was taken one night when she was drugged and gang raped while a student at Harvard. She has no memories of that night.

Now a paralegal (not the lawyer she had planned on) she puts in her time with a cold rage inside. In the break room she finds a group of men gawping at a video. It’s her – from that night.

An idea takes hold that she can’t shake loose. She approaches Michael, the IT guy from the office. Together they strategize.

This is a character driven novel, Dahlia and Michael move toward their own sweet brand of romance as they plot the downfall of her rapists. There are plot holes with unlikely scenarios. I forgave them all, because Sandra Block created two characters I liked which made What Happened That Night an enjoyable read.
