A domestic suspense debut about a young couple and their apparently friendly neighbors, a twisty rollercoaster ride of lies, betrayal, and the secrets between husbands and wives. They seem to have it all--a loving relationship, a wonderful home, and their beautiful baby. But one night when they are at a dinner party next door, a terrible crime is committed. Suspicion immediately focuses on the parents. But the truth is a much more complicated story. Inside the curtained house, an unsettling account of what actually happened unfolds.

Opinion

From Library Staff

A baby is kidnapped while her parents are at a dinner party next door. This story is a wild ride of emotions combined with plot twists that I never saw coming. If you like Gone Girl and Girl on the Train and are looking for a quick read, this book is for you! —Michelle

A co-worker recommended this book & what a great selection. A great mystery that grabs you quickly and never stops. There are many twists & turns & the story kept me guessing until the end --- which you are not expecting. A fast, fun read.

If you're looking for the great American thriller, this isn't it. But it's entertaining enough and had a twist that I wasn't immediately expecting. If you're just looking for an easy mystery to get lost in, this will do the job.

The second book I've read by Lapena - I enjoyed both very much. The intrigue and suspense made it a difficult one to put down.

I enjoyed this book quite a bit. Everytime I thought that I had it figured it out, it turned out I was wrong. It was an enjoyable read!

Started great building a who-done-it but fell apart as it progressed to the point of becoming silly. Plus I HATED they whiney stupid mother. Have you ever read a book slowly, savoring the wonderful prose and its imagery? This is not one of those books.

Average suspense. Characters are pretty wooden and plot is thin. Probably would be a good movie just because it is a very simple plot and the twists in the tale are fairly predictable
