"In this twisty psychological thriller from the New York Times bestselling author of The Girl Before, an actress plays both sides of a murder investigation. One out-of-work British actress pays the rent on her New York City apartment the only way she can: as a decoy for a firm of divorce lawyers, hired to entrap straying husbands. When the cops begin investigating one of her targets for murdering his wife--and potentially others--they ask her to lure the suspect into a confession. But with the actress pretending to be someone she isn't, differentiating the decoy from the prey becomes impossible--and deadly"--

This is truly a twisted thriller! Who is guilty? Who is watching who? Who is the suspect? Who is working with police? Which story is real? Which one is the act? This story will capture your attention from the first page until the last. You will be lead down one street and you think that you will reach the end - and then the street will swerve and you are going in another direction, and soon you will not know what is real or what it not real. Put on your seatbelt and enjoy the ride. The journey will keep you up all night trying to get to the finish line and believe me it will be worth your time......

This is a twisted thriller filled with haunting dilemmas. Did he or didn't he? Will she or won't she? What is real and what is all part of the role? Who is the real suspect? The reader is sucked in from the beginning into this dark plot with a serial killer on the loose and Baudelaire coming to life. Claire is a British actress trying to revamp her career in NYC. She does some side work for an investigator to help expose husbands with cheating on their mind. A new assignment finds her inserting herself in the life of a suspected killer to get him to confess. It is a cat and mouse game reminiscent of the series "The Following" and will be a book you don't soon forget.
