Very dark psychological thriller that examines how mothers and fathers deal with being parents.

I just feel Hannah does a great job with her characterizations. Her pacing is good. I just couldn't put it down.

My only issue with this one is that it's almost absolutely necessary to have read the Hurting Distance prior. Otherwise Simon and Charlie's relationship makes little sense.

Also, her foreshadowing, while fair, also made it clear who the culprit was early on . . . However, you didn't know the reason why - and that kept me reading.

I'll definitely keep her on my list of top mystery authors.
