Publisher's Summary

From the international best-selling author of Unraveling Oliver, an “unputdownable psychological thriller with an ending that lingers long after turning the final page” (The Irish Times) about a Dublin family whose dark secrets and twisted relationships are suddenly revealed.  

My husband did not mean to kill Annie Doyle, but the lying tramp deserved it. 

On the surface, Lydia Fitzsimons has the perfect life - wife of a respected, successful judge, mother to a beloved son, mistress of a beautiful house in Dublin. That beautiful house, however, holds a secret. And when Lydia’s son, Laurence, discovers its secret, wheels are set in motion that lead to an increasingly claustrophobic and devastatingly dark climax. 

For fans of Ruth Ware and Gillian Flynn, this novel is a “seductively sinister story. The twists come together in a superbly scary denouncement, which delivers a final sting in the tail. Brilliantly macabre” (Sunday Mirror).

Simply amazing...

Wow. So so well written and interesting. Really broke the dry spell for me. This book will go in my top 20 for 2018 so far.

Just finished and I am creeped out!

Sort of reminds me of an Alfred Hitchcock ending. Story kept me listening and narration is good.

The end was not what I wanted it to be...

It wasn’t bad the story kept moving along the last 20 minutes 15-20 years probably went by.. I guess you can’t always get the endings you want and think would be most satisfying so I’ll have to just accept the conclusion as is. But there certainly are pathological liars out there who tell themselves whatever they need to make the crazy seem normal. Sorry for the poor review but I don’t want to give things away.

Great Narration Saved an Average Story

The characters were so predictable that the “suspense” was missing. I kept listening in hopes of a clever twist at the end or perhaps something unpredictable. Unfortunately, the non-ending left me disappointed.
