The discovery of a murdered woman, Danielle Roberts, on a bench in a public park in a suburb of Austin, Texas, sets off a chain of events that shake a seemingly average family to its core. Abbott's new thriller digs deeply into the minds of the members of the Pollitt family, friends and neighbors to the dead woman, each of whom is affected by the murder in his or her own way. As curiosity about the woman's death grows, the suspicious eyes of the Pollitts turn to one another. The question looms: Could one of them have committed the crime? And who is sending anonymous messages to one of the Pollitt children? Who is threatening the Pollitt father? Abbott's use of multiple points of view is strikingly effective, providing a smart way of showing the reader the broad-strokes picture while zooming in and out to focus on specific details and moments. Questions stack up in the reader's mind until the urge to race through the book is virtually unstoppable. Another fine, suspenseful novel by a master of the psychological thriller.
