Kane (Pretty Little Wife) returns with another domestic suspense novel that explores the relationships among extended family members and the question of loyalty. Does one’s family always deserve the benefit of the doubt when a relative displays behavior that is downright suspicious, and perhaps murderous? Elisa Wright struggles with this dilemma because her husband’s brother, Josh, who has a dead wife and a missing fiancée, has begun dating another woman. Elisa was very close with Abby, Josh’s fiancée, before she disappeared and cannot believe he would give up the search and move on. So, despite her husband’s incredulity and continued defense of his brother, Elisa begins investigating. What she finds raises even more questions, though others are beginning to question her stability. As she battles the pushback from her husband and Josh, and also an increasingly worrisome illness, the truth remains tantalizingly out of reach. Is the new girlfriend in danger, and is her own family at risk?
VERDICT Kane delivers another fast-paced domestic thriller that’s sure to please fans of psychological suspense and family drama.
