“Twisted, tortured, a tantalizing delight for those who love domestic thrillers.”

A chance encounter that unravels a stunning web of lies and deceit.

 Be careful to whom you tell your darkest secrets…

Selena Murphy is commuting home from her job in the city when the train stalls out on the tracks. She strikes up a conversation with a beautiful stranger in the next seat, and their connection is fast and easy. The woman introduces herself as Martha and confesses that she’s been stuck in an affair with her boss. Selena, in turn, confesses that she suspects her husband is sleeping with the nanny. When the train arrives at Selena’s station, the two women part ways, presumably never to meet again.

But days later, Selena’s nanny disappears.


Let’s be honest – anything written by Lisa Unger is going to be simply fabulous. Out of all her books I’ve read, this is my favorite.


When I read, I like to take my ‘writer’s hat’ off and just enjoy the experience. I try not to look too far ahead, I don’t want to guess or be on the look out for clues or red herrings – I want to enjoy the journey as the writer intended.

Which is probably why so many of the twists in this book caught me unaware! They were brilliantly done, in plain site but yet unseen. The two main storylines merged together in ways that made sense but had caught me by surprise – which is probably why this is one of my favorite reads of the fall season so far!

I won’t tell you about those twists because that would ruin the surprise for you, but not every chance meeting is by chance and every action taken has consequences – and Lisa Unger has outdone herself with the creation of these characters and the consequences handed out!

 Grab this book – whether its print or audio – and enjoy the experience!
