That is, until her husband buys a flat in its newly renovated interior so that she can be close enough to help her mother, and Marianne can't tell him why the place fills her with such dread, she can't risk destroying the careful life she's built.

    *Starred Review* Marianne never planned to return to her small hometown, but when her mother's dementia symptoms worsen, she finds herself back to help care for her. Leaving her mentally ill daughter in London, Marianne is already nervous about the distance, never mind her anxiety about the memories that could resurface in the shadow of Nazareth, the town's now-shuttered asylum. Her husband, not knowing her full past, surprises her by purchasing a flat in the newly renovated institution turned housing complex. It doesn't take long for the memories and secrets to start haunting Marianne, forcing her to confront her past in order to keep her family safe. Kelly's latest (after He Said/She Said, 2017) is a fast-paced, thrilling, and extremely clever novel. Written in several parts that show the passage of time through the development of the mental institution—which is a character itself—the book's secrets are revealed slowly. Full of blackmail and lies, this novel grows in intensity as each character's story is told. Utterly engaging, terrifying, and unputdownable, this novel will haunt readers and have them wanting more from Kelly. Copyright 2019 Booklist Reviews.
