A masterful thriller from an extraordinary new voice in passion and suspense—Margaret Carroll

Christina achieved unparalleled wealth and prestige when she married Jason Cardiff, Wall Street wizard and Mayflower descendant. But once the cracks in the union began to show, even the towering privet hedges surrounding their East Hampton estate could not contain the dark rumors.

Then everything came crashing down . . .

At an exclusive Midwest rehab center, Christina receives the shocking news that Jason has been found dead in their swimming pool. The discovery that she's a murder suspect shatters her newfound sobriety and propels her back into the dangerous arms of Daniel Cunningham—the mysterious blue-collar worker who may have been present the night of Jason's death. But her rekindled affair could cost Christina her son, her fortune, and her life—and if she cannot conquer her re-emergent demons, the truth and the tide will drag her under permanently.

Praise For Riptide

Carroll is a strong writer, whose ability to construct a scene and weave a tale rivals the best in the business.
