SECRETS AND SUSPENSE AMONG FAMILY: Praised for her ability to “get inside the head of a contemporary woman” (The Globe and Mail), Joy Fielding has crafted a nail-biter of a story about a fractured family, and the forces—both outside and inside—that strive to destroy it altogether.
CRITICAL ACCLAIM: Fielding’s previous novels have been praised by People (“Fielding has made the women-in-jeopardy genre her own”), The Washington Post (“Fielding masterfully manipulates our expectations”) and the St. Louis Post Dispatch (“The maven of domestic terror”), among many others.
PRAISE FOR PREVIOUS BOOK, CUL-DE-SAC: Internationally bestselling author Samantha M. Bailey was “entranced” by Fielding’s “gifted storytelling,” and Joy received a starred review from Booklist, who called it “an outstanding thriller and a perfect beach read.”
HOMEGROWN QUEEN OF DOMESTIC SUSPENSE: Joy is a Toronto author who reached global fame as one of the pioneers of an electrifying genre.
