Publisher's Summary

He knows everything about you—including the first place you’ll hide.

On a warm summer night in one of Boston’s working-class neighborhoods, an unthinkable crime has been committed: Four members of a family have been brutally murdered. The father—and possible suspect—now lies clinging to life in the ICU. Murder-suicide? Or something worse? Veteran police detective D. D. Warren is certain of only one thing: There’s more to this case than meets the eye.

Danielle Burton is a survivor, a dedicated nurse whose passion is to help children at a locked-down pediatric psych ward. But she remains haunted by a family tragedy that shattered her life nearly 25 years ago. The dark anniversary is approaching, and when D. D. Warren and her partner show up at the facility, Danielle immediately realizes: It has started again.

A devoted mother, Victoria Oliver has a hard time remembering what normalcy is like. But she will do anything to ensure that her troubled son has some semblance of a childhood. She will love him no matter what. Nurture him. Keep him safe. Protect him. Even when the threat comes from within her own house.

In New York Times best-selling author Lisa Gardner’s most compelling work of suspense to date, the lives of these three women unfold and connect in unexpected ways, as sins from the past emerge—and stunning secrets reveal just how tightly blood ties can bind. Sometimes the most devastating crimes are the ones closest to home.

    "so worthwhile"

    I agree with one reviewer that it is hard to read about sad circumstances which involve children, but this book is so worth listening to, and WOW the readers are just exceptional. "thumbs up for Lisa Gardner"

    "waste of time"

    the story didn't go anywhere. It seem like she went over the same things over and over again. I found it boring and predictable

    "Are we there yet?"

    I wasn't disappointed because my expectations were super high. The story was interesting but had a slow start. I found it a bit confusing as I tried to keep up with all the times and characters. I love this author and I am on to the next book in the series!

    Story
    "I got pulled right in!"

    I don't write reviews often,but this was a must. Lisa Gardner took me into an area I'm really not familiar with, mental illnesses. She wrote in a way where I clearly understood, with so many twists, and really interesting characters. I was hooked and in suspense through the whole book. I really liked Detective Dee Dee Warren much more in this book. She was just as cocky and brass as always, but her character didn't take over the entire story this time. This story constantly kept me wanting for more, and couldn't put the listen down for long except for when I had too. Great Narrators, and a truly great story all around.
