An edge of your seat thriller that has it all – a creepy mansion occupied by a strange and repressed family; a child, old before her time, who is truly unsettling; a murder (maybe?) tied to a mystery; and a first person POV heroine who is female, authentic and has her own traumatically tortuous past to deal with.

Stella Hudson is a “best interest attorney” who represents the voice of children and teenagers in controversial custody cases. When Stella takes on the case of Rose Barclay, a solemn red-haired nine year old in the midst of a bitter parental divorce, who is also a child witness to the suspicious death of her Nanny, she is forced to battle her most difficult adversary – herself – as the case quickly becomes triggering into her own deeply unsettled childhood.

Stella’s unpacking of the fabulously wealthy Barclays, and their suspiciously murky behavior, quickly escalates to personal danger, as well as emotional crisis, as secrets, lies and longings revealed may threaten the collapse of all that Stella holds dear.

A fast and suspenseful read, hard to put down, this tense and twisty story had me reading deep into the evening. With an ending that was both satisfying and only partially predicted by this reader, this book is recommended for lovers of domestic suspense, thrillers and/or anyone who enjoyed “The Push” or “The Perfect Child”.

A great big thank you to the Netgalley, the author and the publisher for an ARC of this book. All thoughts presented are my own.
