The perfect family, a house full of secrets, and an ingenious killer out for revenge.


Dr. Shelby Cooper is a brilliant research scientist with a past steeped in secrets and lies—lies about her true identity and the one terrible mistake she made as a teenager. Now, the perfect life she’s since built with her two adorable kids, and powerful executive husband in a picturesque New England town is about to come crashing down.


When her ex-lover is found shot to death in the trunk of her car, all evidence points to Shelby as the perpetrator. To the police, it’s an open and shut case but for the Cooper family, the nightmare is just beginning: a dangerous enemy with a bitter vendetta is hiding in plain sight. As the race to unmask a killer intensifies, a series of shocking revelations threaten to ruin the Coopers for good. But nothing can prepare them for the mother of all deception, a truth so horrifying, it may leave them shattered forever.



A truly diabolical psychological thriller. If at any point you think you have this one all figured out, you probably don't.”
