Synopsis

From USA Today bestselling and Edgar and Shamus Award–winning author Alison Gaylin comes a slick, riveting, and all too frighteningly plausible tale of psychological suspense in which a single mother, haunted by her past, finds herself the target of a vast network of conspiracy theorists—who hold her responsible for an unspeakable crime, and will stop at nothing to bring her down…and, even worse, to take her beloved daughter down with her.

At long last, life seems to be working out for Meg Russo. A self-destructive, blackout-prone Hollywood actress in her youth, she’s now the sober, single mom of a fourteen-year-old daughter, living in the small Hudson Valley town of Havenkill, where she grew up. Despite a difficult divorce, she’s managed to make peace with her ex and his fiancee, loves her job teaching drama at a community college, and is proud of her daughter Lily, who, unlike Meg at that age, seems to have her head on straight. With a new man in her life—the first in years—it looks as though things are about to get even better.

Until Meg gets a text.

It’s just one sentence long and looks like spam. But it’s something much more sinister—the opening salvo from a dangerous stalker, who worships Meg’s beloved former co-star Danny Malina… and believes her to be responsible for his tragic, decades-old death. After a terrifying confrontation, a deeply shaken Meg is forced to question two things: what she is—and was?—capable of, and if her stalker isn’t the only one after her. As she receives more threats, she fears she may be dealing with multiple conspiracy theorists—all of whom are determined to chase her down, destroy her life… and make her pay for the shockingly evil acts they believe she committed.

With her life and family in jeopardy, Meg must battle these unseen tormentors, as well as her own murky past. Is she being gaslit by deranged fanatics—or was she a worse person during those long-ago blackouts than she could have ever imagined?
