One dinner party will destroy everything.

The night that throws a wrecking ball into Abby’s life starts out perfectly at first. There’s still a hint of summer sun in the purple-streaked sky. Abby and her best friend, Sienna, look on fondly as their two husbands laugh under the garden gazebo. None of them know it’s the last time they will be together again.

What starts out as just a little fun, has devastating consequences for the couples. Alone with Sienna’s husband, Greg, Abby finds him unexpectedly charming. And something happens that night that neither she nor Greg can take back.

Abby is desperate to tell her husband and Sienna the truth, but can’t risk Greg sharing what he knows about her. She has no choice but to keep quiet. Then Greg suddenly disappears.

Is her best friend’s husband simply running from his secrets? Or has someone decided they can’t risk that he may share theirs?

The most gripping and twisty psychological thriller you’ll read this year from #1 bestseller Kathryn Croft. Perfect for readers who loved Gone Girl or The Girl on the Train.

    By kali-hm
    It was incredibly difficult to stop reading. The pages just held more and more secrets and I was eager to find the truth! With an ending you’d never suspect and a twist that’s shocking, you won’t be able to put this book down until you have all the answers!
  • Interesting concept, abrupt ending

    By ab1557
    I’ll say the twist at the end is one I didn’t see coming, but the more I think about it, the less it makes sense to me. Like, it just doesn’t seem plausible. The rest of the book was good, but the ending threw me off and then ended so abruptly that I was left unsatisfied.
  • Okayish

    By Shhh, I'm at a good part.
    Interesting at parts, but a slow read mostly. Still good enough to read more by this author.
