In this twisty psychological thriller from the New York Times bestselling author of The Girl Before, an actress plays both sides of a murder investigation.
“A compelling read . . . redefines the concept of an unreliable narrator . . . [a] rich, nuanced, highly literary take on the Gone Girl theme.”—Booklist (starred review)

A struggling actor, a Brit in America without a green card, Claire needs work and money to survive. Then she gets both. But nothing like she expected.
Claire agrees to become a decoy for a firm of divorce lawyers. Hired to entrap straying husbands, she must catch them on tape with their seductive propositions.
The rules? Never hit on the mark directly. Make it clear you’re available, but he has to proposition you, not the other way around. The firm is after evidence, not coercion. The innocent have nothing to hide.
Then the game changes.
When the wife of one of Claire’s targets is violently murdered, the cops are sure the husband is to blame. Desperate to catch him before he kills again, they enlist Claire to lure him into a confession.
Claire can do this. She’s brilliant at assuming a voice and an identity. For a woman who’s mastered the art of manipulation, how difficult could it be to tempt a killer into a trap?
But who is the decoy . . . and who is the prey?

Read by Sally Scott, with Matt Reeves, Lorelei King, John Chancer, and Eric Meyers

This was a great book. Lots of twist and turns. I didn’t see the ending until it happened. Loved the authors other book and this one did not disappoint.

This book was basically just OK. It had gripping moments but was too convoluted. And the narration, sometimes presented in a play format, was distracting. It is worth reading just don’t have Gone Girl expectations.

This book has a great story and is very well written. It drags about 3/4 of the way through and could have used some ruthless editing to eliminate unnecessary detail and distractions. Listening to it as an audio book, there is no way to skip material that should have been cut.
