Summary:

A chance encounter sparks an unrelenting web of lies in this stunning new psychological thriller from national bestselling author Mary Kubica.

Heidi Wood has always been a charitable woman: she works for a nonprofit and takes in stray cats. Still, her husband and daughter are horrified when Heidi returns home one day with a young woman named Willow and her four-month-old baby in tow. Disheveled and apparently homeless, this girl could be a criminal—or worse. But despite her family’s objections, Heidi invites Willow and the baby to take refuge in their home.

Heidi spends the next few days helping Willow get back on her feet, but as clues into Willow’s past begin to surface, Heidi is forced to decide how far she’s willing to go to help a stranger. What begins as an act of kindness quickly spirals into a story far more twisted than anyone could have anticipated.

“This book will give insomniacs a compelling reason to sit up all night.”—Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

Genres:

    I thoroughly enjoyed this book and will look fir others by Mary Kubika. The ending was a bit abrupt, but did tie up most if the loose ends. I would like to read more about the Woods , oerhaps in a subsequent book.

  • K Lindsey

    I made it through half of this book but was honestly pretty bored! I definitely want to find out what happened to the girl and the baby but couldn't get through all the other storylines and stay interested enough to finish

  • Angelie S

    gripping

  • Alexandra H

    Keeps you guessing then surprises you. Lots of twists and turns to intrigue.

  • Rebecca Dumas

    Great book!! I'd highly recommend this book. It's a mystery thriller book that will keep you wanting more.

  • kimberly SCoggins

    This book and it's narration was mind numbingly boring! I couldn't get a whole three hours in. More power to those who enjoyed the book, but it's most definitely not the proverbial page turner.

  • Casey Gibbons

    I loved this book. All 3 narrators were excellent. I highly recommend this book!

  • Nancy Dobosiewicz

    Good book. Narration was excellent. Not compelling but definitely kept me listening through the end.

  • Heiða Liljudóttir

    Loved it. The reading was so convincing, it was sometimes hard to listen.
