Henry Hayden is quite confused. Would things be easier if his wife disappeared, or his mistress? Henry’s musings on the subject begin a long, dark journey into the mind of a popular author bent on simplifying his life by “losing” one or the other. The ante is upped when his mistress reveals a pregnancy, forcing Henry to choose, and choose quickly.
Then one of the two woman dies, wreaking havoc on Henry’s well-ordered life. He claims he didn’t do it. Should we believe him?
Fast-paced and full of hairpin turns, this book will keep you guessing until the very end. If you like psychological thrillers with unreliable narrators, you might also want to try The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins, Before I Go To Sleep by S.J. Watson, or In the Blood by Lisa Unger.
