New York Times bestselling author of THE GOOD GIRL Mary Kubica is back with another exhilarating thriller as a widow’s pursuit of the truth leads her to the darkest corners of the psyche.
Clara Solberg’s world shatters when her husband and their four-year-old daughter are in a car crash, killing Nick while Maisie is remarkably unharmed. The crash is ruled an accident…until the coming days, when Maisie starts having night terrors that make Clara question what really happened on that fateful afternoon.
Tormented by grief and her obsession that Nick’s death was far more than just an accident, Clara is plunged into a desperate hunt for the truth. Who would have wanted Nick dead? And, more important, why? Clara will stop at nothing to find out—and the truth is only the beginning of this twisted tale of secrets and deceit.
Told in the alternating perspectives of Clara’s investigation and Nick’s last months leading up to the crash, master of suspense Mary Kubica weaves her most chilling thriller to date—one that explores the dark recesses of a mind plagued by grief and shows that some secrets might be better left buried.

Bestseller Kubica returns to form with this chilling psychological thriller after 2016's disappointing Don't You Cry. One sunny day, while dozing at home with newborn Felix, Clara Solberg expects the knock at the door to be husband Nick bringing four-year-old Maisie back from ballet; instead it's a cop notifying her about a car crash that's left her husband in a Chicago-area hospital, already brain-dead. The news is unthinkable, almost as impossible for her to credit as the notion that Nick could have been speeding around a hairpin turn with Maisie in the back seat. But once the shell-shocked widow begins digging, it starts to look as though the accident if it was an accident could be only one part of their lives that's significantly more sinister than appearances suggested. Although Kubica allows an increasingly unhinged Clara to pinball too freely among various paranoid scenarios, she shows herself once again to be a master of suspenseful manipulation (and occasionally misdirection) with her shuffling of narrators and chronology.
This is one of my favorite authors and I look forward to reading her books...this book was good, but it was depressing and it kept me in a depressive state while reading. If you can get through the weight of it, then it’s a good story, but a sad one.
Typical of the a lot of writers today. Too much fluffy detail about the character, and not enough depth in the story .
Long drawn out read. I skipped so much hoping it was going to get better but ugh, it did not. SO boring! Don’t waste your time.
