Stephanie knew that Patrick was married before and that his wife died in an accident, but now it’s being alleged that it was in fact murder. As the past comes hurtling into the present Stephanie is forced to question everything she knows about her husband. She wants to believe he’s innocent, but as the lies being to pile up fear begins to take root and doubt begins to unfurl.

I’ll let you discover how they unravel when you read the book yourself. One thing is for sure, you won’t want to put this book down until you know how it all ends.
