'As fascinating and cunningly plotted as any he has done previously, with just that perfect proportion of naive and well-intentioned characters being plunged into cauldrons of deceit and lies ... As ever nothing seems as it appears and Swanson turns the screw with ingenious artistry ...The web of complications twists and turns with every new chapter until the whole plot feels as tight as a vice and ready to explode, at which time the author finds yet more complications to add to the mix. First-rate suspense.' - Maxim Jakubowski, Crime Time
On the eve of his college graduation, Harry is called home by his step-mother Alice, to their house on the Maine coast, following the unexpected death of his father.
But who really is Alice, his father's much younger second wife? In a brilliant split narrative, Peter Swanson teases out the stories and damage that lie in her past. And as her story entwines with Harry's in the present, things grow increasingly dark and threatening - will Harry be able to see any of it clearly through his own confused feelings?
