Reminiscent of the bestsellers of Laura Lippman and Harlan CobenA??with a dose of Big Little Lies or Stranger ThingsA??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 stationA??and lives are changed forever.
Aimee En, once a darling of the A??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 MillerA??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 viewpointsA??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 secretsA??and the lengths we'll go to protect ourselves.
