OrangeReviewStarWhen her mother is found brutally murdered, Dr. Kate English learns that career, wealth, and status are not enough to insulate her from devastating loss. Following the funeral, Kate receives macabre warnings that her own life is in danger. Despite heightened home security and support from her friend Blaire, with whom she's recently reunited, Kate remains frightened and begins to suspect those in her inner circle, wondering if the same person responsible for her mother's death might now be tormenting her. Could it be Kate's father, who was recently heard arguing with her mother; Kate's estranged husband or his presumed mistress; an eccentric friend with a history of stalking; Kate's daughter's nanny; or a stranger with a vendetta? As the threats intensify, Kate and Blaire (a best-selling mystery writer) work together to unravel the riddle before Kate comes to harm.
VERDICT Sisters Lynne and Valerie Constantine, under the pseudonym Liv Constantine (The Last Mrs. Parrish), have crafted another clever whodunit jam-packed with enough twists, turns, and secrets to keep avid thriller readers second-guessing until the bitter end. [See Prepub Alert, 11/5/18.]
