Great page-turner set at the CT coast right across the border from RI. Claire Chase knows a secret about her husband Griffin, a powerful political figure running for governor, and that secret may get her killed because it would end his run for office. Claire is attacked in her garage and left for dead by someone in disguise she presumes is her husband. She goes on the run in the dense woods that border the coast, but an investigation is under way by the local police after they find the bloody scene in the garage. Other secrets between the neighbors and friends of Claire come spilling out giving the police a very complicated case to solve, especially after a boat explosion kills a friend of Claire’s and the friend’s son. Claire is fighting for survival in the woods and trying to decide who she can trust with the secret that started it all.

An Amazon Charts bestseller.

The Amazon Charts bestselling author of Last Day delivers a haunting thriller about how far one wife is willing to go to expose the truth--and the lengths someone will go to stop her.

After artist Claire Beaudry Chase is attacked and left for dead in her home on the Connecticut coast, she doesn't know who she can trust. But her well-connected husband, Griffin--who is running for governor--is her prime suspect.

Just before the attack, Claire was preparing for an exhibit of her shadow boxes, one of which clearly accuses Griffin of a violent crime committed twenty-five years ago. If the public were to find out who her husband is, his political career would be over. Claire's certain her husband and his powerful supporters would kill her to stop the truth from getting out.

When one of Claire's acquaintances is murdered, the authorities suspect the homicide is linked to the attack on Claire. As the dual investigations unfold, Claire must decide how much she's willing to lose to take down her husband and the corrupt group of elites who will do anything to protect Griffin's interests and their own.
