Publisher Description

A NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

Another thrilling domestic suspense novel from the New York Times bestselling author of Not a Happy Family

“The twists come as fast [as] you can turn the pages.” —People

“I read this novel at one sitting, absolutely riveted by the storyline.  The suspense was beautifully rendered and unrelenting!” —Sue Grafton

It all started at a dinner party. . .

A domestic suspense debut about a young couple and their apparently friendly neighbors—a twisty, rollercoaster ride of lies, betrayal, and the secrets between husbands and wives. . .

Anne and Marco Conti seem to have it all—a loving relationship, a wonderful home, and their beautiful baby, Cora. But one night, when they are at a dinner party next door, a terrible crime is committed. Suspicion immediately lands on the parents. But the truth is a much more complicated story.

Inside the curtained house, an unsettling account of what actually happened unfolds. Detective Rasbach knows that the panicked couple is hiding something. Both Anne and Marco soon discover that the other is keeping secrets, secrets they've kept for years. 

What follows is the nerve-racking unraveling of a family—a chilling tale of  deception, duplicity, and unfaithfulness that will keep you breathless until the final shocking twist.

The beginning and the end were good

I’m a pretty avid reader and have never left a review on here, but this book compelled me to do so. I love murder mysteries and was sucked in by the promise of many twists & turns. The beginning was fast-paced and interesting, but then I absolutely lost any interest around page 200. The middle of this book moves at glacial pace. I have never done this in my life, but I ended up skipping ahead to see what happens and then reading a summary to be sure I didn’t miss anything major. It’s one of those where everything is jam-packed into the end. Frustratingly uneven.

Worth it

I haven’t read a book in a long time and recently found the time to start reading again. I stumbled across this book and became obsessed. Very well written.
