“Intricate and nuanced—on par with the best top-flight psychological suspense.” —L.A. Times


From master of suspense Lisa Unger comes a riveting thriller about a chance encounter that unravels a stunning web of lies.

Selena Murphy is commuting home on the train when she strikes up a conversation with a beautiful stranger in the next seat. The woman introduces herself as Martha and soon 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.

Then the nanny disappears.

As Selena is pulled into the mystery of what happened, and as the fractures in her marriage grow deeper, she begins to wonder, who was Martha really? But she is hardly prepared for what she’ll discover…

    By Am book reader
    Intriguing and twisty, this was a good book. The characters were well fleshed out and you felt like neighbors to the Murphy household. Especially like the many facets of Pearl. Many strong women and flawed men, but you cheered on this ladies. Highly recommend as a fan of Lisa Unger, will buy more of her titles.
