Description
"Fourteen years before the present day of this ... domestic thriller, ... Chloe Taylor helped her brother-in-law Adam Macintosh defeat her rebellious older sister Nicky in their custody battle over the couple's two-year-old son Ethan. Four years later, Chloe married Adam and became Ethan's stepmother. Now, Nicky lives alone in Ohio, selling jewelry on Etsy, while 41-year-old Chloe lives with 47-year-old Adam and 16-year-old Ethan in New York City, working as editor-in-chief of Eve magazine. When someone kills Adam in the family's East Hampton vacation home, Chloe's biggest fear is that the court will grant Nicky guardianship of Ethan"--Publishers Weekly (01/21/2019).
