Karen Cleveland deliciously ratchets up the tension at every turn. You won’t be able to put it down until the final, stunning page!“—Shari Lapena, New York Times bestselling author of The Couple Next Door
”Perhaps there will be two or three readers out there who manage to finish the first chapter of this terrific debut and put it down for more than an hour. But they’ll be back. And they’ll devour it like the rest of us, skipping lunch, losing sleep, turning pages until the end, where we’re all left waiting for more.“—John Grisham
”Perfect for…just about everyone who loves the thrill of finding themselves in a book that can’t be put down.“ —Booklist (starred review)
”[A] pulse-hammering first novel.“ —Library Journal (starred review)
”Prediction: if you read chapter one, you’ll read chapter two. If you read chapter two, you’ll miss dinner, stay up far too late, and feel tired at work tomorrow. This is that kind of book. Superb."—Lee Child, #1 New York Times bestselling author
