Named by Goodreads as One of the Most Anticipated Mysteries and Thrillers of 2021
Neighbor against neighbor. Welcome to Maple Street, a picture-perfect slice of suburban Long Island. But when the Wilde family - Arlo, Gertie, and their children - moves in, they trigger their neighbors' worst fears. They don't fit with the way Maple Street sees itself. Though Rhea Schroeder - a lonely college professor repressing a dark past - welcomed Gertie and her family at first, relations went south. As tensions mount, a sinkhole opens in a nearby park, and Rhea's daughter Shelly falls inside. The search for Shelly brings a shocking accusation against the Wildes. Suddenly, it is one mom's word against the other's in a court of public opinion that can end only in blood.
