In a dark and brilliant guessing game of a novel - evoking Patricia Highsmith and Agatha Christie - Peter Swanson once again displays his unique gift for lovingly reprising and refreshing mystery writing´s greatest tropes.
´He´s the real deal...´ JOE HILL

´Another read in one sitting from the best-selling Swanson.´ METRO

´A brilliantly original premise, delivered with panache.´ CLARE MACKINTOSH

On the eve of his college graduation, Harry is called home by his step-mother Alice, to their house on the Maine coast, following the unexpected death of his father.

But who really is Alice, his father´s much younger second wife? In a brilliant split narrative, Peter Swanson teases out the stories and damage that lie in her past. And as her story entwines with Harry´s in the present, things grow increasingly dark and threatening - will Harry be able to see any of it clearly through his own confused feelings?
