Some people’s secrets are darker than others.

Sophie Whitehouse has a lovely home, two adorable children, and a handsome, successful husband. In other words, she has the “perfect” life. But everything changes the night her husband James comes home and confesses an indiscretion. Suddenly, her neat, ordered world is turned upside down. Did she ever really know the man she married?

And, as it turns out, James’s revelation is just the tip of the iceberg. He stands accused of a terrible crime. But, the truth is even more shocking than anyone ever could have thought. Is James the guilty perpetrator or an innocent victim of a toxic agenda?

In this riveting story of love, revenge, and deception, no one’s motives are pure, but some people’s secrets are much darker than others.

A resonant page turner

It’s hard to find a book these days that’s both well written and addictive. I read the entire book on a cross country flight and I’m still thinking about the characters and the quality of writing. Excellent.

Interesting but poorly written

The story is compelling, but it feels as if this were written by a college sophomore - way too much tired metaphor and exposition. Where was the editor??
