Is the murderer still on the island? Did it pay off? And, better yet, it was an effective twist.
Bravo Kubica, I'm officially on the bandwagon! This had all of the elements of what I need in a great suspense/thriller and that's all i'm going to say about that! That causes lots of fear on the island, particularly so for Sadie who comes under scrutiny. while reading go out and get this immediately! But even these myriad domestic dramas and sinister secrets soon pale in comparison to what is lurking in their new neighbourhood... Mary Kubica is the New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of many novels.

He has both a wife and a lover on the side. Sadie and Will Foust have inherited a home on a small Maine island and move there from Chicago with their two sons. The ending pushed things a little over the edge for me and that overthinker in me took over and ruined it all for me. This is an original plot that makes this mystery fascinating. Plus, Imogen is not very happy to have them there and is moody and withdrawn. My second issue was the protagonist herself. The reason for their sudden move is a little murky and Alice’s house is more than a little creepy considering that she committed suicide in the attic and left behind sullen teenage daughter Imogen.
