Description

A chance encounter sparks an unrelenting web of lies in this stunning new psychological thriller from national bestselling author Mary Kubica. Heidi Wood has always been a charitable woman: she works for a nonprofit and takes in stray cats. Still, her husband and daughter are horrified when Heidi returns home one day with a young woman named Willow and her four-month-old baby in tow. Disheveled and apparently homeless, this girl could be a criminal-or worse. But despite her family's objections, Heidi invites Willow and the baby to take refuge in their home. Heidi spends the next few days helping Willow get back on her feet, but as clues into Willow's past begin to surface, Heidi is forced to decide how far she's willing to go to help a stranger. What begins as an act of kindness quickly spirals into a story far more twisted than anyone could have anticipated.

Professional reviews

"Three narrators' voices weave together, creating the fabric of a story that revolves around Heidi (collector and protector of stray creatures); her husband, Chris; and Willow, the mysterious teen mother whom Heidi shelters. Taking turns, Cassandra Campbell, Tom Taylorson, and Jorjeana Marie expertly build the tension of this hypnotic psychological thriller. As we collect disconcerting clues about Willow's past, we inexorably piece together what's ahead for the trio. The three-part narration works well, helping listeners keep characters straight and emphasizing the collision of their stories (though listeners may wish for a slightly more youthful sounding Willow). As a simple act of kindness becomes more and more complex, listeners will be enthralled, then chilled by the twists and turns. J.C.G. © AudioFile 2015, Portland, Maine"
