Publisher's Summary

Domestic noir at its best. Listeners will devour this stunning audiobook about the disintegration of a marriage as grief, jealousy, betrayal, and murder destroy the facade of the perfect literary couple.

New York Times best-selling author J. T. Ellison takes her exceptional writing to a new level with this breakout novel.

They built a life on lies.

Sutton and Ethan Montclair's idyllic life is not as it appears. They seem made for each other, but the truth is ugly. Consumed by professional and personal betrayals and financial woes, the two both love and hate each other. As tensions mount, Sutton disappears, leaving behind a note saying not to look for her.

Ethan finds himself the target of vicious gossip as friends, family, and the media speculate on what really happened to Sutton Montclair. As the police investigate, the lies the couple have been spinning for years quickly unravel. Is Ethan a killer? Is he being set up? Did Sutton hate him enough to kill the child she never wanted and then herself? The path to the answers is full of twists that will leave the listener breathless.

Sharp Psychological Thriller - 4 Amazing Narrators

How well do you know the person you’ve married?

How much do you trust the person you live with? The person you sleep beside? The person you have sex with?

Lies, evasions, jealousies, tragedies…how is a couple supposed to survive? By either growing closer or moving apart. When Ethan Montclair wakes up one morning and breakfast isn’t ready, he assumes his wife Sutton has gone for a run. It never occurs to him that she’s run away. Yet her handwritten note tells him not to look for her.

Despite her request, Ethan does look. He speaks to anyone who might know where Sutton has gone and eventually even calls the police – knowing he will be considered the prime suspect in her disappearance. But he loves her and is worried. As the story unfurls, Ethan and Sutton’s lives are put under a microscope and all is not as it appears. The question is, how far will Ethan go to uncover his wife’s truth? And how is it that his perception appears to be so different than hers – if her friends and family are to be believed?

I love stories where things are slowly peeled away and layers lifted. Nothing was implausible, but the end was still a surprise.

I’m a huge J.T. Ellison fan and have been waiting with bated breath for this book. I listened to the audio in one day.

I was not disappointed.

I love psychological thrillers with unreliable narrators. In this case, there are literally a number of different voices – 4 in all. It is great that they producers decided to go with four different, and talented, narrators. Each brings something unique and I especially love Matthew’s British accent for Ethan.

If you loved Ellison’s No One Knows, you will really enjoy this one and I highly recommend it.

Hard To Keep Up

Took me forever to finish because I had to keep rewinding or skipping back to chapters to figure out what was going on

I loved it!

This book was right up my street. Interesting, jumping g back and forth in time and between characters, keeping the mystery going. Good narration, great story, I'll be looking out for more of the same.

Story was good but...

The male voice made all the female characters sound like members of the lollipop guild from the wizard of oz. It was very distracting.

Sorry, JT, this is just awful!

JT Ellison has been one of my favorites since before most folks knew who she was, but I just cannot finish this--in fact, I have barely started it, but it has to go back--I simply cannot get into it. I have listened to every one of he first ones, some more than once, but this is too painful to listen to.

Kinda predictable but fun

Didn't think I'd like it this much. Lots of plot twists some of which were predictable. I didn't really get the ending but maybe I missed something.

Loved it

Very different that the typical, psychological thriller, in the way the characters and story line developed. The narrators were all very good, and kept a good pace.
The only thing I was disappointed with, was that once you “figured it out”, it seemed kind of rushed to an end, and fell flat. But I do still definitely recommend it! Read it or listen, it’s a great story.
