When Juliette Granger drives away in the middle of the night with her young daughter, a masked man forces her off the road. The following day, her car is found at the bottom of a canyon with her inside. There’s no sign of her daughter.
Juliette’s sister Raine is left to work out what happened. Why didn’t her sister arrive as planned? Was her loving and faithful husband, Seth, responsible for her death? Raine embarks on an investigation that reveals a secret side to Juliette’s life that she never expected.
I love stories where someone has a hidden side to their life. And while the story starts off with a bang, it took a while to hook me in as the layers of Juliette’s life were stripped away. Once a glimpse of this other life is revealed, the story becomes more of a thriller than a murder mystery.
There is the usual cast of suspects, all with motives. Everything gets complicated and the tension rises to an exciting climax and resolution.
The author always produces a good mystery and this is no exception with strong, believable characters, an intriguing premise, and plenty of conflict and drama to keep you turning the pages.
Suburban housewife Juliette Granger has been living a secret life … a life that’s about to turn deadly for everyone she loves.
Fearing for her life after witnessing a gruesome murder, Juliette Granger whisks her two-year-old daughter Nora away in the dead of night and flees, planning to start a new life in a small, forgettable town under an alias. An hour into the escape, headlights flash behind her. A vehicle pulls alongside, and a masked man demands she stop the car. She refuses him, and a deadly game of cat and mouse begins.
