“This is an absolute, can’t-put-it-down thriller. . . . It’s truly a wild ride that had me flying through chapter after chapter—which I think is the perfect way to kick off your year of reading.”
—Reese Witherspoon (Reese’s Book Club Pick January 2023)

—Julia Bartz, New York Times bestselling author of The Writing Retreat

“It’s a back-and-forth book that’ll leave you on the edge of your seat, for sure.”
New York Post
