“Surely an unspoken fear of parents is that they will discover that their child has some dark secret, that their normal, well-adjusted, happy child is hiding something. McPherson introduces us to just such a family in a whodunit with many layers of psychological intrigue, secrets, and unspoken emotion. Alex and Millicent and their son, Max, find themselves in the middle of a murder investigation and what was once taken for granted begins to unravel around them. This is a must-read for anyone who loves being in the clutches of a brilliant thriller with anything but a straight line to the conclusion.”

For Alex Mercer, his wife Millicent and their son Max are everything--his perfect little tribe. But when their next-door neighbor dies, their lives are irrevocably changed. During the police investigation, troubling questions throw suspicion on Alex, Millicent, and even Max. Each of them has secrets, and each has something to hide.
With the walls of their world closing in on them, husband, wife, and son must decide how far they'll go to protect themselves--and their family--from investigators carefully watching their every move . . . waiting for one of them to make a mistake. Highly provocative, intensely twisty and suspenseful, this novel will have you wondering if one of them--or all--are guilty, and will keep you on edge until its electrifying final pages.
