DEBUT In Blaque’s edgy entry into the domestic suspense sphere, Sophia Claire seems to have the perfect life as wife of the CEO of a large pharmaceutical research company. Robert Claire is rich and handsome, and together they have financial and social clout in their Deep River, WA, community. Despite their fairy-tale marriage, though, Robert can’t stop cheating. Then young women start dying in Deep River, and each one has a link to Rob. In the face of questioning by attractive detective Adella Cruz, Sophia starts to crumble and is drawn into the secrets of Rob’s sexual life while she tries to stage-manage what’s happening, even while dealing with the return of an unstable man with whom she once had her own affair.
VERDICT Readers will find 50 shades of domestic suspense in this sexy thriller focused on unreliable narrators and cheating spouses. Regular readers of the genre will likely have the twist figured out long before the ending, but they will enjoy the journey. Recommended for readers of Tarryn Fisher or Shari Lapena.
