Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
Aldrich University is rocked to its core with scandal and intrigue when a hacker dumps 40,000 people's emails--the entire faculty, staff, students, alums--onto an easily searchable database. Affairs and scandals immediately start leaking, but these emails become ticking time bombs that explode when Kit Manning's handsome husband, Dr. Greg Strasser, is murdered. Kit's sister, Willa, flies home to help, returning to a hometown she fled fifteen years ago...after a night she wishes she could forget. Willa, an investigative reporter, knows something is not quite right and is determined to find the truth--of what happened the night Greg was murdered, and of the secrets that are hiding in every house in town. With a killer on the loose, and families breaking apart seemingly by the minute, Willa and Kit have to figure out who killed Greg before the body count starts to rise.

    *Starred Review* In this fifth adult novel (after The Elizas, 2018) from the New York Times best-selling author of the YA series Pretty Little Liars, the smug women of a college town learn who their colleagues and husbands really are after elite Aldrich University's emails are hacked. Everyone's bad judgment and misdeeds, including those of faculty, staff, students, and alums, are available for the world to see. The initial gasps turn sinister as both petty and deadly acts of revenge are played out. Shepard throws every cliché imaginable at the reader and then artfully massages them into a brilliant narrative told in the voices of the many women involved in the story who, having managed to make victims of one sort or another of themselves, all emerge victorious, each in her own fashion. Kit Manning's surgeon husband, outed as a total lech, is found murdered, and Kit's reputation is further battered by the reemergence of rumors that the surgeon allowed Kit's first husband die on the operating table. Kit's sister reluctantly returns to help, despite the painful and secret memories she holds of Aldrich. Everyone is hiding a closetful of secrets, which, when finally revealed, provide some excellent misdirection and a few OMG moments, until one final and shocking truth emerges. Fans of domestic suspense will devour this one. Copyright 2019 Booklist Reviews.
