Publisher's Summary

She doesn’t remember what she did. They’ll make her pay anyway....

Blackmail, sabotage, and blood-chilling suspense converge in this phycological thriller meets detective mystery by Cynthia Hamilton, the best-selling author of the Madeline Dawkins series. 

A picture-perfect life.... 

Madeline had it all. A handsome, successful husband. A coveted spot near the top of Santa Barbara’s elite social pyramid. A country-club lifestyle with every luxury money could buy. If only she knew how quickly she’d lose everything. 

Destroyed overnight.... 

Madeline wakes up naked in a five-star hotel with no memory of how she got there. At home, her husband is threatening to file for divorce. Someone sent him a series of incriminating pictures from last night, all featuring Madeline…in bed with a man she doesn’t recognize. It’s an obvious setup, but nobody will believe her unless she can prove it. 

What if the ones you trust.... 

Disgraced from her Santa Barbara community, Madeline is left to fend for herself against an invisible enemy. But each new clue pulls her deeper into a dangerous game, where old friends turn into enemies and nobody can be trusted. 

…can't wait to bring you down? 

As her enemy’s attacks grow increasingly personal and disturbing, it’s clear they will do anything to destroy Madeline’s reputation…or even her life. 

Told through the eyes of an unsuspecting wife who must navigate the misinformation and betrayal found around every corner. 

An action-packed ride full of unexpected twists, a must-listen for fans of Ruth Ware, Karin Slaughter, and Mary Stone.

Suspenseful Story and Great Story Telling

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. The plot was exciting and kept me on the edge of my seat with each chapter. I thought it was well written and flowed smoothly.

The narration was superb. Melissa Kay Benson masterfully created the personality in each character that truly made them unique and believable. I enjoyed listening to her energy and enthusiasm as she unfolded this tale.

I highly recommend this book if you enjoy suspense and like rooting for the underdog. I look forward to the next one!

Spellbinding story

This was such a spellbinding mystery. There were numerous twists and turns making it hard not to just sit down and listen for hours to find out what happens next. Madeline is a great character; a strong woman, but still realistically human. I loved Bert! He is so caring and yet professional and good at his job. The only character I wasn't overly fond of is Mike. He would have been great as Madeline's friend, but I found it hard to tolerate his foul mouth. I think the author needs to increase her vocabulary if she cannot express a character without inappropriate language, which is the reason I did not give 5 stars to the overall rating. And the reason I would hesitate reading more by this author. The narrator, Melissa Kay Benson, is good, but needs to use lower voices for the men, and there were times it was difficult to figure out which character was talking.

I requested this audiobook from Audiobooks Unleashed and have voluntarily left this review.
