One dinner party will destroy everything.

The night that throws a wrecking ball into Abby’s life starts out perfectly at first. There’s still a hint of summer sun in the purple-streaked sky. Abby and her best friend, Sienna, look on fondly as their two husbands laugh under the garden gazebo. None of them know it’s the last time they will be together again.

What starts out as just a little fun, has devastating consequences for the couples. Alone with Sienna’s husband, Greg, Abby finds him unexpectedly charming. And something happens that night that neither she nor Greg can take back.

Abby is desperate to tell her husband and Sienna the truth, but can’t risk Greg sharing what he knows about her. She has no choice but to keep quiet. Then Greg suddenly disappears.

Is her best friend’s husband simply running from his secrets? Or has someone decided they can’t risk that he may share theirs?

The most gripping and twisty psychological thriller you’ll read this year from #1 bestseller Kathryn Croft. Perfect for readers who loved Gone Girl or The Girl on the Train.

  • Not a great read

    By abegail_elizabeth
    This book was really disappointing. I picked it up as a summer read thinking it would be fun, but instead it was a story of unlikeable characters with weird, random secrets that are never fully divulged. It is definitely not a clever book, even though it strives to hit that mark. I really can’t recommend it, and I only finished reading it because I felt I had to in order to write this review.
  • Loved it!

  • Twisty turny fun

    By Smilleygal
    This book had so many twists. Every time I thought I knew where it was going BAM it shifted. Started recommending this to friends before I was a third of the way through the book.
  • Disappointing

    By heeavenn
    Good characters but not a great story. No psychological thrill at all.
  • Round and around it goes . . ugh!

    By frenchy0674
    The initial intrigue grips you, until a who-dun-it won’t give up. Repetitive, character in-fighting, and the intrigue fades into a I don’t care, who-dun-it. I finished it, but what a struggle.
  • Interminable

    So sorry I wasted hours of my life on this book. Too long, and too confusing. And no, I’m not stupid - I’m a retired teacher and copy editor. The plot twists were, I imagine, meant to be suspenseful, but they were simply incomprehensible. I came to care less and less about these characters, but kept reading to see “whodunnit .” The ending was completely unbelievable!
  • Really good and a page turner. Would have preferred a little different ending

    By tyraaz
    Enjoyed it a lot. I couldn’t put it down. I was mildly disappointed in the ending. Although it was a surprise I feel like there could have been more explanation for it and it didn’t 100% make sense. Overall really good read.
