Publisher's Summary

A GMA Buzz Pick

“Kim McCreight's thrillers are smart, propulsive and impossible to put down." (Laura Dave, author of The Last Thing He Told Me) 

In this relentlessly twisty literary thriller from New York Times best-selling author Kimberly McCreight, a desperate intervention brings together a group of college friends 10 years after graduation - a reunion marked by lies, betrayal, and murder.

Coming Soon from Amblin Television

Everyone has those friends. Doesn’t matter how long it’s been, or how badly they’ve occasionally behaved, or how late it is when that call finally comes - you show up. No questions asked.

Honestly, that’s how the five of us ended up here in the Catskills. We did have the best of intentions. Especially after what happened to Alice all those years ago, we can’t bear to think of losing anyone else. In fact, we’ll do anything to make sure that doesn’t happen. We’ll go so much farther than we ever thought we would.  

In the end, maybe that’s what caught up with us. That, and the fact that we’re such a complicated group - so much history and so many big personalities. Secrets, too, that can slip out at the most inopportune moments. Of course, we love each other despite all of those things. We love each other no matter what.

There’s something so beautiful about that kind of unconditional love. It can turn ugly, though. Or maybe that’s just us. After all, we’ve already been through so much together. And we have so very much to hide.

A true mystery!

This book has everything! A complex plot but not confusing. Very clear story that keeps you guessing!

Lots of great characters building, I felt like I knew all of them.

The end was a huge twist I didn’t see coming!

I could not stop listening. Worth a credit and then some!

I enjoyed the multiple narrators

I enjoyed the multiple narrators. They did a great job. I liked the book. There are a lot of characters. Maybe it's because I always listened when I was doing something else, but I started to have trouble keeping track. It got a little convoluted for for me.

Full of Twists & Turns to its Chilling End

Full of twists and turns, and with a tenacious detective that “sinks her teeth in and doesn’t let go until she hits bone”, Kimberly McCreight's new novel tells the tale of betrayal and murder with modern flair. Suspenseful, fast paced, and full of red herrings, it leaves you wondering and wanting to know more all in the same moment.... the ending is delivered is Ms. McCreight’s signature style, and does not disappoint.

Lots of characters to keep track of (hence the 4 stars) - but the narrators all did an excellent job of bringing their characters to life. Really enjoyed a first listen to Ewan Chung, and this one was one of Lauren Fortgang’s most nuanced and best performances.

Thank you, Ms. McCreight - keep ‘‘em coming. Look forward to your next read!

Deserving of all the Kudos

The author presents her story in a rather unique manner, toggling back and forth among the characters and time periods. The ending was both a stunner and a very satisfactory conclusion.

great

it was a wonderful twist I didn't expect the ending. I like thrillers that have a sort of happy ending or at least closure.

Friends Like These?

Not what I was expecting to read. I wasn’t a fan of the story and the characters were not well liked. I did enjoy the different audio narrators but other than that it was a so-so thriller.
