No. That’s a lie. It wasn’t sudden, was it? Long ago the cracks in Lizzie’s marriage had started to show. She was just good at averting her eyes.
The last thing Lizzie needs right now is a call from an inmate at Rikers asking for help—even if Zach Grayson is an old friend. But Zach is desperate: his wife, Amanda, has been found dead at the bottom of the stairs in their Brooklyn brownstone. And Zach’s the primary suspect.
As Lizzie is drawn into the dark heart of idyllic Park Slope, she learns that Zach and Amanda weren’t what they seemed—and that their friends, a close-knit group of fellow parents at the exclusive Grace Hall private school, might be protecting troubling secrets of their own. In the end, she’s left wondering not only whether her own marriage can be saved, but what it means to have a good marriage in the first place.-Goodreads
Review: It's been awhile since I read a domestic thriller that was a real page turner. This was a delicious read. Yes, it was predictable at times (but not completely predictable) and kept me guessing. Lizzie, an attorney, is working late when one of her old law school friends calls from jail-he's been arrested for his wife's murder. She agrees to take on the case. What exactly happened that resulted in this woman's death and how will Lizzie handle a client who isn't what she remembers. So fun!
