Though Julia and Sienna Larkin are sisters-in-law, their connection runs deeper than that—they’re also best friends and business partners. Julia and her husband Jason have created a good life together, but when Julia sees that a large sum of money has been withdrawn from their bank account, she wonders if something is amiss. Her suspicions are heightened by Jason’s evasive response to her inquiries. Then Jason’s boss Gavin is gruesomely murdered, and Jason is involved in a serious car accident. After he is put in a medically induced coma, Julia is informed that Jason is the primary suspect in Gavin’s murder. Julia and Sienna join forces to clear Jason’s name, even as new information suggests that he may indeed be guilty. Collins’s (The Family Plot) latest is a riveting thriller about trust, truth, and the complexities of marriage, friendship, and family. Gail Shalan and Emily Tremaine narrate alternating chapters, conveying the stress, anger, and uncertainty surrounding the mystery.
VERDICT This character-driven psychological thriller is a welcome addition to any thriller or suspense collection. Pair with Alice Feeney’s Sometimes I Lie.
