APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
Powerhouse mystery author J.T. Ellison nails this Gone Girl–style domestic noir. The story follows debonair author Ethan Montclair, who’s rocked by the sudden disappearance of his wife, Sutton—which follows closely on the heels of the world-shattering death of the couple’s infant son. Worried sick, Ethan turns to the police, but he soon becomes the prime suspect in what looks like a classic domestic homicide. This brooding psychological thriller oozes high-stakes suspense. Twists? It’s chock full of those, too, but to say anything more would spoil the fun. Ellison uses multiple perspectives and time shifts to create an intriguing, nonlinear whodunit that consistently brings the chills as it races toward a dramatic ending.
