Mary Kubica is back with another exhilarating thriller as a widow's pursuit of the truth leads her to the darkest corners of the psyche. Clara Solberg's world shatters when her husband and their 4-year-old daughter are in a car crash, killing Nick while Maisie is remarkably unharmed. The crash is ruled an accident. . . until the coming days, when Maisie starts having night terrors that make Clara question what really happened on that fateful afternoon. Tormented by grief and her obsession that Nick's death was far more than just an accident, Clara is plunged into a desperate hunt for the truth. Who would have wanted Nick dead? And, more important, why?

I've enjoyed her other books, but this was my favorite. I gobbled it up too quickly!

Overwritten and overwrought.

A mess. The main character finds out things she didn't know about her husband after his accidental (?) death, and spends the whole book being irrational and impulsive. Unfamiliar woman's name overheard - OH NO, MY HUSBAND MUST HAVE BEEN HAVING AN AFFAIR AND WAS ABOUT TO LEAVE ME. Odd bank activity - OH NO MY HUSBAND WAS AN EMBEZZLER AND MUST HAVE BEEN PLANNING TO LEAVE ME. Really, every little factoid gets the wife overdramatizing and speculating in the stupidest possible ways. There are a handful of shifty people in her and her husband's life but nothing to justify this level of paranoia and suspicion. No real plot except for the wife careening from wild idea to wild idea.

It's a good beach book. Frothy, didn't much like the main characters and it was too long. Sort of an illogical plot.

Found the story very compelling and enjoyed the way it flipped back and forth between husband and wife, before and after. However was a bit let down by the ending, thought there were a few things left hanging that you want to be resolved

Mary Kubica has done it again!! I really enjoy reading her books everyone has been great, easy read that I didn't want to put down. Her writing reminds me of Paula Hawkins but not quite as much detail in her story like Hawkins. I was able to figure out the plot twist fairly early on but it's hard to find a book that I can't figure it out quickly.

Very disappointing. Couldn't wait to finish this book. Would not recommend.

I have read all this author's books and have enjoyed them all. Telling the story of the death of Clara's husband, Nick from her view as a grieving, new mother. Not knowing what has been going on her husband's life she does not know the circumstances leading up to his death. She tries to piece together everything as she copes with a newborn, and her 4 yr old daughter who has nightmares and keeps insisting there was a black car and a bad man. She does an excellent job of telling the story through Clara and Nick keeping you engrossed in their life and story until the very last page. A good physcological thriller.
