Pamela Aston isn't locked in the attic like Bertha Rochester in Jane Eyre, but she has been confined in a care facility for dementia. Her husband, Stephen, divorces her to marry a woman younger than one of his daughters. Tully, his older daughter, is extremely neurotic and a kleptomaniac, and the younger one, Rachel, literally feeds her self-destructiveness with her fancy cake business. The bride-to-be, Heather, is a self-made woman, clearly trying too hard to disguise her unfortunate background. Her father is in prison for strangling her mother. Is that why her hands are always shaking? Everyone in this story is impulsively dangerous to themselves and everyone around them, Stephen included, and they are sitting on a powder keg of toxic secrets. A warped tale, moving back and forward in time, full of "what is really happening here?" moments, Hepworth's seventh offering (after The Good Sister, 2021) is perfect for fans of her fellow Australian writers, as it boasts Jane Harper's multilayered characters and Liane Moriarty's wealthy suburban world saturated with lies and deceit.HIGH-DEMAND BACKSTORY: With each domestic thriller, best-selling Hepworth shines brighter and draws in more readers.
