More than a whiff of The Lovely Bones wafts through this haunting domestic noir…. Skillfully told by several narrators…, Jewell’s gripping novel transcends its plot improbabilities to connect with an emotionally resonant story of loss, grief, and renewal.
Publishers Weekly


Laurel Mack is still recovering from the loss of her teenage daughter Ellie.…For thriller readers, Jewell's latest will not disappoint. Sharply written with twists and turns, it will please fans of Gone Girl, The Girl on the Train, or Luckiest Girl Alive. —Robin Nesbitt, Columbus Metropolitan Lib., OH

(Starred review) Full of suspense yet emotionally grounded…Fans of Liane Moriarty, Paula Hawkins, and Carla Buckley will adore this peek inside a gated community that truly takes care of its own, no matter the consequences.
Booklist


[P]alpable tension…deeply disturbing…. [C]haracters and the emotional core of the events are almost obscured by such quick maneuvering through the weighty plot. Dark and unsettling, this novel's end arrives abruptly even as readers are still moving at a breakneck speed.
