Keenly observed psychological detail and breathtaking suspense combine to make this Joy Fielding's best novel yet, sure to appeal to fans and win new readers for the bestselling author of See Jane Run and Don't Cry Now.
Family therapist Kate Sinclair repairs other people's troubled lives, all the while reveling in her stable marriage and handsome home. But there are demons in her past that will not stay buried forever, and the carefully constructed edifice of her life comes tumbling down when her half-sister JoLynn announces her plans to marry Colin Friendly, a man on trial for the brutal murders of thirteen Palm Beach women.
Kate soon finds herself embroiled in a desperate struggle to protect her family from Colin's increasingly sinister advances. To make matters worse, her aging mother is losing her tenuous grip on reality and her rebellious daughter Sara is falling under JoLynn's wayward influence--a development that would worry Kate in the best of times, but which in this case might well prove deadly. As the strain begins to tear Kate's marriage apart, into the fray comes the smooth-talking Robert, her high-school crush, who soon displays an unhealthy interest in the results of Colin Friendly's trial.
As Kate Sinclair slowly slips across the razor-thin line separating ordinary life from unspeakable terror she realizes that there is no one she can trust, nowhere she can run...and no way she can deny that she and her loved ones may be the next targets of a demented serial killer.

This is my first read of Joy Fielding, and she is sensational. Great story line, interesting characters,(if slightly unbelievable) Interesting from the first page to the last. Not much bad language, the descriptions of the crimes are not too dramatic and the lives of the family involved are quite believable, especially the teen daughter, (having raised several teens myself.) Throughly enjoyable, I look forward to reading more of Joy Fielding.
