Reminiscent of the bestsellers of Laura Lippman and Harlan Coben-with a dose of Big Little Lies or Stranger Things-an absorbing, addictive tale of psychological suspense from the author of the highly acclaimed and Edgar Award-nominated What Remains of Me and the USA Today bestselling and Shamus Award-winning Brenna Spector series, in which a seemingly open-and-shut police case with a clear-cut hero and villain turns out to be anything but simple. Late one night in the quiet Hudson Valley town of Havenkill, a distraught woman stumbles into the police station-and lives are changed forever. Aimee En, once a darling of the '80s pop music scene, claims that a teenage boy stole her car, then ran over another young man who'd rushed to help. As Liam Miller's life hangs in the balance, the events of that fateful night begin to come into focus. But is everything as it seems? The case quickly consumes social media, transforming Liam, a local high school football star, into a folk hero, and the suspect, a high school outcast named Wade Reed, into a depraved would-be killer. But is Wade really guilty? And if he isn't, why won't he talk? Told from a kaleidoscope of viewpoints-Wade's mother Jackie, his younger brother Connor, Aimee En and Pearl Maze, a young police officer with a tragic past, If I Die Tonight is a story of family ties and dark secrets-and the lengths we'll go to protect ourselves.

"For this tightly plotted drama of rumors and small-town gossip that can kill, Cassandra Campbell's beautiful cello voice is the perfect instrument. Jackie Reed is the divorced mother of one very squirrelly teenage boy named Wade, whose inner life has become opaque to her, and to Wade's likable little brother, Connor. When a popular classmate is killed during a bizarre carjacking, the social media gossip mill blames Wade, who makes it easy for them. Belief in Gaylin's complicated female characters--Jackie; Pearl, the police investigator; carjack victim Aimee En, a self-aggrandizing has-been rock starlet, among others--is crucial to the success of this high-tension plot. Campbell nails all of them, and the listener to the edge of her seat. B.G. © AudioFile 2018, Portland, Maine"
