A New York Times Bestseller

On a cool June morning, a woman walks her dog along a tidal estuary in the idyllic coastal village of Salten. The dog charges into the water and retrieves not a stick but, to her horror, something far more sinister. Atmospheric, twisty, and with just the right amount of chill to keep you wrong-footed, this is another unputdownable thriller from the Agatha Christie of our time.


Customer Reviews

“Ware masterfully harnesses the millhouse’s decrepit menace to create a slow-rising sense of foreboding, darkening Isa’s recollections of the weeks leading to Ambrose’s disappearance . . . with arguably her most complex, fully realized characters yet, this one may become her biggest hit yet.”

— Booklist (starred)

“Ware's third outing is just as full of psychological suspense as her earlier books, but there is a quietness about this one, a slower unraveling of tension and fear, that elevates it above her others . . . Cancel your plans for the weekend when you sit down with this book, because you won't want to move until it's over.”

— Kirkus Reviews (starred)

“[An] engrossing psychological thriller . . . Ware builds up a rock-solid cast of intriguing characters and spins a mystery that will keep readers turning pages to the end.”
