Alicia Berenson’s life is seemingly perfect. A famous painter married to an in-demand fashion photographer, she lives in a grand house with big windows overlooking a park in one of London’s most desirable areas. One evening, her husband Gabriel returns home late from a fashion shoot, and Alicia shoots him five times in the face and then never speaks another word. Alicia’s refusal to talk, or give any kind of explanation, turns a domestic tragedy into something far grander, a mystery that captures the public imagination and casts Alicia into notoriety.

Reformed party girl Meg Ashley leads a life of privilege, thanks to a bestselling horror novel her mother wrote decades ago.

I have been reading and re-reading Steven King for the past few months because I couldn't find anything I could get interested in. I bought this book on audible and figured I'd give it a try on a recent trip. OMG!! I was looking for places to go so I could continue to follow Meg's story. The narrator was perfect, giving life to each and every character. I'm going to look for more books by this author!
