America's most popular thriller writer, James Patterson, presents his most daring-and astonishing-novel ever.
With the perfect marriage and a great job, Lauren Stillman loves her wonderful life . . . until she sees her husband with another woman. Devastated and lusting for revenge, Lauren has her own affair. It's supposed to be a quickie, but Lauren's night of passion takes a shocking turn when she witnesses an unbelievable and deadly crime.
Now her horrifying secret threatens to tear her life apart, pitting her need to uncover the truth against her fear that the truth may be too horrible to bear. And whichever choice she makes may cost her dearly-her job, her marriage . . . or even her life.
Michael Ledwidge is the author of "The Narrowback", "Bad Connection", and most recently the coauthor, with James Patterson, of "The Quickie", " Step on a Crack", " "and "Worst Case". He has coauthored several "New York Times" bestsellers.
