Publisher's Summary

Pulled into a deadly game of deception, secrets, and lies, a woman must find the truth in order to defeat a mysterious opponent, protect her daughter, and save her own life in this dazzling standalone psychological thriller with an unforgettable ending from the New York Times best-selling author of Woman with a Secret and The Monogram Murders.

You thought you knew who you were. A stranger knows better.

You've left the city - and the career that nearly destroyed you - for a fresh start on the coast. But trouble begins when your daughter withdraws after her new best friend, George, is unfairly expelled from school.

You beg the principal to reconsider, only to be told that George hasn't been expelled. Because there is - and was - no George.

Who is lying? Who is real? Who is in danger? Who is in control? As you search for answers, the anonymous calls begin - a stranger who insists that you and she share a traumatic past and a guilty secret. And then the caller threatens your life....

This is Justine's story. This is Justine's family. This is Justine's game. But it could be yours.

Absolutely charming and chilling!

Sophie Hannah has done it again! Although I love the Zeiler/Waterhouse mysterios, I have to say, this one is an excellent if different type of story. It reflects the influence of agatha Christie especially in the scene where all the characters are gathered in a room and a Poirot like policeman holds forth as to possibly murder scenarios. The language is impeccable. This is one not to be missed!

Hard to follow

The story is a bit difficult to follow and very far fetched once you figure out what is happening. Wait until it goes on sale if you really want to read it.

Off and disappointing

There are two stories in this unusual book. The stories intermingle at some point. Both are uninteresting and foolish. Not one of her best.

Absolutely the worst yet

So tired of getting rotten books that I doubt I'll renew Audible next year. This one will give you a headache to boot with the readers high pitched squeaky voice. I tried 4 times to get thru this! I'm not picky as try at least 2 books a week but this was exceptionally bad.
