Provocative and shocking.” —Lisa Gardner, New York Times bestselling author of Find Her

“I read this novel at one sitting, absolutely riveted by the storyline.  The suspense was beautifully rendered and unrelenting!” —Sue Grafton, New York Times bestselling author of X

It all started at a dinner party. . .

A domestic suspense debut about a young couple and their apparently friendly neighbors—a twisty, rollercoaster ride of lies, betrayal, and the secrets between husbands and wives. . .

Anne and Marco Conti seem to have it all—a loving relationship, a wonderful home, and their beautiful baby, Cora. But one night, when they are at a dinner party next door, a terrible crime is committed. Suspicion immediately lands on the parents. But the truth is a much more complicated story.

Inside the curtained house, an unsettling account of what actually happened unfolds. Detective Rasbach knows that the panicked couple is hiding something. Both Anne and Marco soon discover that the other is keeping secrets, secrets they've kept for years. 

What follows is the nerve-racking unraveling of a family—a chilling tale of  deception, duplicity, and unfaithfulness that will keep you breathless until the final shocking twist.

  • Not worth it

    As good as this book could have been, it did not get there. Poor character development. An odd switching of narrator, that made no sense. Also, the where was never addressed, just a nameless city.
  • Amazing

  • Shari LaPena Keeps the Story Moving

    By robertgavila
    First off, this is a gripping and tense and enjoyable mystery. As I found in “Someone We Know,” another book by Ms. LaPena, the author sacrifices long descriptions of settings in order to keep the action moving. So much happens in a Shari LaPena book! I mean it! So much unfolds between the characters—enough to fill two books—because ‘a trip to the police station’ is written as “…a trip to the police station.” Boom. You’re there. What does it look like, or how is the character’s emotional life reflected in the way the police station is described? Don’t bother: you’re there; get on with it. Your head will spin! But you’ll look for every opportunity to read and find out what happens next. I’m sandwiching one of LaPena’s books between every other book I read until I’ve read them all. You will too, I think.
  • Excellent

    was my first book of hers. this particular week i had read 3 books prior to this one all written in first person, so her third person narrative threw me off initially. nonetheless, full of twists & i thoroughly enjoyed it. i actually couldn’t predict whodunnit!
