From the acclaimed author of Her Every Fear and
The Kind Worth Killing comes a diabolically clever
tale of obsession, revenge, and cold-blooded murderâ€”a sly
and brilliant guessing game of a novel in the vein of Ruth
Ware, Paula Hawkins, and Patricia Highsmith.
Harry Ackerson has always considered his stepmother Alice to
be sexy and beautiful, in an "otherworldly" way. She has
always been kind and attentive, if a little aloof in the
last few years.
Days before his college graduation, Alice calls with
shocking news. His father is dead and the police think itâ€™s
suicide. Devastated, Harry returns to his fatherâ€™s home in
Maine. There, he and Alice will help each other pick up of
the pieces of their lives and uncover what happened to his
Shortly after he arrives, Harry meets a mysterious young
woman named Grace McGowan. Though she claims to be new to
the area, Harry begins to suspect that Grace may not be a
complete stranger to his family. But she isnâ€™t the only
attractive woman taking an interest in Harry. The sensual
Alice is also growing closer, coming on to him in an
enticing, clearly sexual way.
Mesmerized by these two women, Harry finds himself falling
deeper under their spell. Yet the closer he gets to them,
the more isolated he feels, disoriented by a growing fear
that both women are hiding dangerousâ€”even deadlyâ€”secrets . .
. and that neither one is telling the truth.
