Blackmail, sabotage, and blood-chilling suspense converge in this psychological thriller meets detective mystery.
Madeline Ridley had it all: a handsome, successful husband, a place at the top of Santa Barbara society and every luxury money could buy. In all respects, her world was perfect…until she awoke in the early morning hours in an unfamiliar hotel room, alone, unclothed, with a splitting headache and no memory of how she got there.
When Steven Ridley comes home in the middle of a weekday and throws a sheaf of damning photos at her, Madeline’s enviable world collapses in a swirl of blackmail, sabotage and deceit. Hoping to convince Steven of her innocence, Madeline drives to his office and witnesses a scene that makes her realize who the enemy really is.
From that point on, Madeline deconstructs herself, reverting back to Madeline Dawkins while she tries to salvage what’s left of her life. In the process, she discovers where her true strengths lay. Utilizing those, she steels herself for battle, while her life hangs in the balance.
An action-packed ride full of unexpected twists. A must-read for fans of Ruth Ware, Karin Slaughter, and Mary Stone.
