The Bottom Line: If only they were all this good. A shake-you-to-the-core thriller that will touch every reader’s deepest fears.
It’s a secret that might have stayed buried if only her life had been less perfect. A promotion for Emma’s husband, Alex, means they can finally move to a bigger home with their young son. But with a buyer lined up for their old house, Emma can’t leave without destroying every last trace of her final revenge…
Returning to the shallow grave in the garden, she finds it empty. The body is gone.
Panicked, Emma confesses to her husband. But this is only the beginning. Soon, Alex will discover things about her he’ll wish he’d learned sooner. And others he’ll long to forget.
Author Caroline Miller has perfected the art of the zero fat thriller in this lean, mean exercise in dread. She’s no Ray Carver, but when it comes to economical narratives, she comes awfully close. A perfect read for a quick trip or rainy weekend.
