Gehrman’s (The Girls Weekend) latest is a tense and suspenseful psychological thriller about family, friendship, and the secrets we are willing to keep. Twenty years ago, as a teen, Tansy was drawn to Selene, who had a no-nonsense attitude, told shocking stories, and was always going to wild parties. She seemed to lead a glamorous life that appealed to Tansy. Then one night that illusion was stripped away. Now Selene is back, demanding that Tansy repay her debt by helping Selene’s daughter escape a dangerous relationship. What follows is a reckoning as Tansy learns who Selene really is and becomes trapped in the clutches of a delusional woman.
VERDICT Narrator Emily Ellet adds to Gehrman’s atmospheric novel with an urgent performance that also captures the wistfulness of someone looking back on their youth. Each twist and turn will leave listeners on edge until the shocking conclusion.
