What is the difference between justice and revenge? In this buzzworthy new standalone thriller by New York Times bestselling author Lisa Unger, two wronged women on very different paths find themselves in the same dark place…
Claudia Bishop’s perfect life fell apart when the aftermath of a brutal assault left her with a crumbling marriage, a newborn daughter, and a constant sense of anxiety about the world around her. Now, looking for a fresh start with a home restoration project and growing blog, Claudia takes on a crumbling old house—one that unbeknownst to her has an ugly history and may hide long buried secrets.
For Zoey Drake the defining moment of her childhood was the horrific home invasion murder of her parents. Years later, she has embraced the rage that fuels her. Training in the martial arts has made her strong and ready to face the demons from the past—and within.
Strangers to each other, and walking very different paths in the wake of trauma, these two women are on a collision course—because Zoey’s past nightmare and Claudia’s dreams for her future take place in the very same house. As Zoey seeks justice, and Claudia seeks peace, both will confront the monsters at the door that are the most frightening of all.
I’m going to be up front and admit I’m biased with this book because I’m a huge fan of Lisa Unger’s, I’ve read everything she’s written and have loved each of them. Thankfully she did not disappoint with her newest book and kept her track record for awesomeness alive! I was hooked from the first chapter.
She has this way of writing suspenseful mysteries that make you question your sanity at times but does it in such an intriguing and interesting way you become hooked to her stories.
Unger has created a thrilling plot using the sins of humanity, greed and revenge, but also its better halves, love and forgiveness. The lives of two complex and enthralling women are held up as the image for which to view all of this. Her story line is full of enough surprising twists you will be kept satisfied through to the end.
This book reminded me why I’m such a huge fan of hers because it’s classic Lisa Unger with all of her talent on display and embraced through this distinctly captivating story.
