Publisher's Summary

As a teenager, Jill Shannon fell victim to her stepfather's cruel abuse. Now, as an adult, Jill's made it - she has a successful career and a solid, if not static, marriage to Detective Alex Shannon. Together they live out what seems to be a perfect life in Seattle.

The vow she made as a teenager to never again be a victim lies dormant - until one day a reporter lures her to his hotel room under the pretense of an interview - and suddenly it all comes rushing back.

Jill seeks revenge on the reporter, triggering a series of events that leads Jill down a wormhole of retribution, forcing her to spin an ever-widening web of lies.

Meanwhile, Alex is on the case of a series of murders that began as cyber relationships. There seems to be a familiar fingerprint on these crimes, but Alex refuses to believe that the murderer could be so close to him.

For those who couldn't put down The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo comes a thrilling ride a la Mr. and Mrs. Smith, where husband and wife stand on opposite sides of a divide created by lies and rooted in a dark and deadly past.

Gritty, Thrilling and Different!

This was a great thriller with an unexpected ending. It looks like there might be a sequel and I really hope so. The story is from the perspective of two characters, a husband and wife with their own story plots. I especially enjoyed the female protagonist. She had me saying many things in my head as she made one fateful choice after another. I found her to be very interesting and I want to see where her life goes from here.

If you enjoy books with edgy stories with true grit, ones that keep you guessing then you will love this book. I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review. I will also note that although I got this one for free, I just paid for another of his book, "In the Dark" and can't wait to start listening. Chris Patchell has a new fan!

Wow, quite the ending!

If you’re looking for a murder-mystery with a mystery for an ending, read on! This is a mid-sized book for an adult reader with a good imagination. This way you’ll be very surprised when you realize that you didn’t predict the ending.
