Book SynopsisWhen her mother is murdered, a woman is propelled into a twisted world of danger and double lives in this gripping psychological thriller from the bestselling author of Somebody's Daughter and Cemetery Girl. Leslie Hampton always cared for her troubled son Ronnie's special needs and assumed that her daughter Elizabeth would take him in when the time came. When Leslie dies unexpectedly, Elizabeth is consumed by grief. Then police discover that Leslie was strangled, and they immediately suspect that one of Ronnie's outbursts took a tragic turn. Elizabeth can't believe that her brother is capable of murder, but who else could have had a motive to kill their quiet, retired mother? More questions arise when a stranger is named in Leslie's will: a woman also named Elizabeth. As the family's secrets unravel, a man from Leslie's past who claims to have all the answers shows up, but those answers might put Elizabeth and those she loves the most in mortal danger.
