Publisher Description

A devoted wife, a loving husband and a chilling murder that no one saw coming.

Things that make me scared: When Charlie cries. Hospitals and lakes. When Ian drinks vodka in the basement. ISIS. When Ian gets angry… That something is really, really wrong with me.

Maddie and Ian’s love story began with a chance encounter at a party overseas; he was serving in the British army and she was a travel writer visiting her best friend, Jo. Now almost two decades later, married with a beautiful son, Charlie, they are living the perfect suburban life in Middle America. But when a camping accident leaves Maddie badly scarred, she begins attending writing therapy, where she gradually reveals her fears about Ian’s PTSD; her concerns for the safety of their young son; and the couple’s tangled and tumultuous past with Jo.

From the Balkans to England, Iraq to Manhattan, and finally to an ordinary family home in Kansas, sixteen years of love and fear, adventure and suspicion culminate in The Day of the Killing, when a frantic 911 call summons the police to the scene of a shocking crime.

Don't miss Annie Ward's explosive new novel, The Lying Club, a story of revenge, murder and shocking secrets!

Beautiful Bad

Great book but the ending was disappointing. It was a cliff hanger. Will there be a sequel? That would be good. Too many unanswered questions.

Hard to like any of the characters. Lost interest early on and gave up halfway through. Might be someone else’s cup of tea, but not mine.

Fantastic! So well written. Loved the story & adored the characters!

So engaging. Edge of your seat reading! Characters were so realistic and interesting! I will most definitely follow this amazing author.
