Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

From the acclaimed author of Her Every Fear , The Kind Worth Killing and The Girl With a Clock for a Heart, comes a diabolically clever tale of obsession, revenge, and cold-blooded murder - a sly and brilliant guessing game of a thriller.

On the eve of his college graduation, Harry is called home by his step-mother Alice, to their house on the Maine coast, following the unexpected death of his father. But who really is Alice, his father's much younger second wife? In a brilliant split narrative, Peter Swanson teases out the stories and damage that lie in her past. And as her story entwines with Harry's in the present, things grow increasingly dark and threatening - will Harry be able to see any of it clearly through his own confused feelings?
