Book Synopsis



A heart-racing new psychological thriller from USA Today bestselling and multiple award-winning author, Hank Phillippi Ryan.

One wrong word can ruin your life. And no one knows that better than savvy crisis management expert Arden Ward. Problem is, she's now forced to handle a shocking crisis of her own. Unfairly accused of having an affair with a powerful client, Arden's life and dreams are about to crash and burn. Then, Arden is given an ultimatum. She has just two weeks to save her career and her reputation.

Is Cordelia Bannister the answer to her prayers?

Cordelia needs Arden's help for her husband Ned, a Boston real estate mogul. Though he was recently acquitted in a fatal drunk driving accident, his reputation is ruined, and the fallout is devastating not only to the Bannisters' lives, but the lives of their two adorable children.

Arden devotes her skill and determination--and maybe her final days on the job--to helping this shattered family, but soon, revelations begin to emerge about what really happened the night of the accident. And then--another car crash throws Ned back into the spotlight.

This case is Arden's final chance to protect her own future and clear her name. But the more she tries to untangle the truth, the more she's haunted by one disturbing question--what if she's also protecting a killer?

Gossip. Lies. Rumors. Words like that can hurt you. And Arden knows the reality. Sometimes one wrong word can kill.

I received this book as an ARC with no expectation of a positive review. This book had so many twists and turns that you did not know what was the truth and what was a lie. Arden's job was a spin master. She helped people get their lives back after questionable circumstances. What happens when Arden is caught up in a situation that has been fabricated against her. She has one last client and two weeks to try to redeem whatever she could of her reputation. Everything that she believed was brought into question. Who is telling the truth? Who can she trust? What really is happening. This is a book that will keep you guessing to the very end. It is a must read. Warning. You may lose sleep because you do not want to put the book down.
