America's most popular thriller writer, James Patterson, presents his most daring-and astonishing-novel ever.

With the perfect marriage and a great job, Lauren Stillman loves her wonderful life . . . until she sees her husband with another woman. Devastated and lusting for revenge, Lauren has her own affair. It's supposed to be a quickie, but Lauren's night of passion takes a shocking turn when she witnesses an unbelievable and deadly crime.

Now her horrifying secret threatens to tear her life apart, pitting her need to uncover the truth against her fear that the truth may be too horrible to bear. And whichever choice she makes may cost her dearly-her job, her marriage . . . or even her life.


When Lauren Stillwell witnesses her husband leaving a hotel with another woman, she decides to get even. But her revenge goes awry, and she finds her world spiraling into a hell that becomes more terrifying by the hour.

Just as things get resolved and you start breathing again, it all changes. Quick paced, I couldn't put it down.
