Everyone in this family is hiding something.

You may get to choose your partner, but you don't get to choose your mother-in-law.

From the moment Lucy met Diana, she was kept at arm's length. Even after marrying Oliver, Lucy knew they'd never be close.

But who could fault Diana? A pillar of the community, an advocate for social justice, the matriarch of a loving family.

That was ten years ago. Now, Diana has been found dead. There is a suicide note, but the autopsy reveals foul play. And everyone in this family is hiding something . . .

A thrilling page-turner about that trickiest of relationships.
