A USA TODAY best-selling book "Fast-paced and chilling...a brilliant mystery about lies, shame, and secrets." --Apple Books If you don't confront your past...it might confront you first. Dr. Gregory Weber appears to have an enviable life. He's a renowned clinical psychologist residing in an elegant home in Cambridge, Massachusetts, with his wife, Liv, and their two kids. But Gregory feels increasingly disconnected. His marriage is strained, his children are distant, and he can't stop fixating on an unforgivable mistake he made when he was seventeen. Something no one else knows about. So when an unscheduled client named Mira starts to appear in his office every Wednesday at 1 p.m. with knowledge about his past, Gregory quickly grows obsessed with her. Is she a new patient? A secret referral from a colleague? Someone connected to his teenage transgression? As his attraction for Mira grows more intense with each session, so does her probing scrutiny of him. Soon Gregory's professional boundaries begin to dissolve, and he becomes the patient, desperate to uncover his connection to this mysterious woman and find out what she wants from him. In searching for the answers, Gregory risks losing everything that matters: his career, his family, and his mind.
