In this explosive new thriller, #1 New York Times bestselling author Lisa Jackson delves into the deep bond between two sisters and their shared dream that becomes a harrowing nightmare of madness, hatred and jealousy....
Cassie Kramer and her younger sister, Allie, learned the hazards of fame long ago. Together, they'd survived the horror of a crazed fan who nearly killed their mother, former Hollywood actress Jenna Hughes. Still, Cassie moved to L.A., urging Allie to follow. As a team, they'd take the town by storm. But Allie, finally free of small-town Oregon, and just that little bit more beautiful, also proved to be more talented - and driven. Where Cassie got bit parts, Allie rose to stardom. But now her body double has been shot on the set of her latest movie - and Allie is missing.
Police discover that the last call to Allie's phone came from Cassie, though she has no recollection of making it. Instead of looking like a concerned relative, Cassie is starting to look like a suspect - the jealous sister who finally grew sick of playing a supporting role. As the tabloids go into a frenzy, Cassie ends up in a Portland psych ward. Is she just imagining the sinister figure who comes to her bedside, whispering about Allie - a visitor of whom there is no record? Is someone trying to help - or drive her mad?
Convinced she's the only one who can find Allie, Cassie checks herself out of the hospital. But a sudden slew of macabre murders - each victim masked with a likeness of a member of Cassie's family - makes Cassie fear for her safety and her sanity. The only way to end the nightmare is to find out what really happened to Allie. And with each discovery, Cassie realizes that no one can be trusted to keep her safe - least of all herself....

This held my interest and was well performed. Worth my time.
I love mysteries and understand you need several potential culprits, but thought there were too many unnecessary characters in this book.
This was a great book, it took me a while to get through it because when I would start I wouldn't want to stop. towards the end my stomach would be and knots because of the suspense. It was well narrates and definitely well-written. I wanted to Google what happened as I listen but I opt not too. lol. It wasn't too predictable but I was able to figure out the secret of the family. I wasn't able to figure out who the person was though. I would say this book wasn't worth the credit, it's actually worth the money.
I didn't like how Cassia still never completely trusted her instincts, even at the end. Although, she herself, was the most reliable.
Hard to tell who is 😜. The sister or the sister. Good story tho.
Cassie Cramer should have stayed in the mental institution. There was nothing likeable about her. She constantly did all the wrong things until the last chapter. Maybe it was a better read than a listen, but I will not buy in Lisa Jackson books any time soon.
As an entreprenuer, it is hard for me to shut off my brain! It is also hard for me to sit still! I love audibles! I can exercise, work on "chores" , travel and be entertained! Always looking for a good story!
The story was good enough that I didn't want to stop in the middle of the book, however, I listened to it on 1.5x to 2x speed because of the repetition. In future books, I would recommend the author not belabor the points she would like us to catch. We are way ahead and the fun of a book like this is connecting the dots. Lots and lots of needless narrative about how the character was feeling. It would be better to show rather than tell...do it in a story.
I was bored but was curious enough to see how it ended to finish the book.
I cannot recommend this book when there are so many other good ones.
The narrator had problems creating different characters in her voice, and it was easy to get confused...but pleasing otherwise.
The story was pretty good, though a little long winded. I have found most of Lisa Jackson's books to be unnecessarily long. The narrator was monotone and breathy. Her "older" female voice sounds extremely pompous. The male voice was annoying and monotone. I would find myself not paying attention because the narrator's voice is so boring. The last sentence of each chapter the narrator made far too dramatic. She often sounds like a news reporter.
