The gripping new psychological thriller from the No. 1 bestselling author of My Lovely Wife.
Beth, Eddie and Portia are siblings.
Beth is devious, calculated and ruthlessly manipulative.
Eddie is controlling and will do anything to get what he wants.
Portia, the youngest, is much smarter than she's given credit for.
But they all have one thing in common:
An incident that happened when they were children, that has now forced them back together.
But that was just the beginning . . .
And it can only end with murder.
Because no-one is more dangerous than the ones who know you best . . .

APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
What’s the best way to stir up trouble for an already dysfunctional family? Throw a lucrative, contentious will into the equation. Samantha Downing—whose staggeringly addictive thriller My Lovely Wife had so many people reeling—uses this delicious set-up for this beautifully unsettling novel. We join Beth Morgan, older brother Eddie and younger sister Portia on a hellacious US road trip, as per the instructions left in their grandfather’s will. The estranged siblings must mirror a doomed trip taken by their parents and grandfather some 20 years prior to claim their juicy slice of inheritance pie, but naturally: it’ll be no simple drive down memory lane. Downing takes great pleasure in presenting her evocative, ghoulish Americana and the devilish characters her backstabbing leads must negotiate. Her wonderfully plotted book throws up questions around family bonds and pressures, and allows us to draw our own conclusions.
