A Library Journal SELF-e Best Book Pick 



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


Dr. Shelby Cooper seems to have it alla successful career as a leading scientist in her field, two adorable kids, and a loving husband who is poised to become the next CEO of a multi-billion dollar company. 

Shelby's perfect world is shattered when she becomes the prime suspect in the brutal murder of her former Physical Therapist. After all, the body of Alessandro Rossi was discovered in the trunk of her car with a single bullet wound to the head, and Shelby's fingerprints all over the murder weapon.


For the Cooper family, the nightmare is just beginning. An ingenious killer is on the loosea vengeful enemy whose diabolical scheme could send Shelby to prison for life.


Who is Shelby Cooper and what secrets has she been keeping? Who wants her permanently out of the picture and why? The truth may be too horrifying to be believed.

A compelling and addictive psychological thriller that reveals a stunning portrait of deception, betrayal, and vengeance that will keep you breathless until the final, jaw-dropping twist.


















“A truly diabolical psychological thriller. I have read many psychological thrillers, a great number of them much gorier and more sadistic than this, but few with a more twisted bottom-line. If at any point you think you have this one all figured out, you probably don't.”

 - LaDonna's Book Nook
