Summary, etc.:
"Ellie Falkner's world has been destroyed. Her husband, Greg, died in a car crash--and he wasn't alone. In the passenger seat was the body of Milena Livingstone, a woman Ellie's never heard of. But Ellie refuses to leap to the obvious conclusion, despite the whispers and suspicions of those around her. Maybe it's the grief, but Ellie has to find out who this woman was--and prove Greg wasn't having an affair. And soon she is chillingly certain their deaths were no accident"-- Provided by publisher

    French delivers another ingenious plot, continuing her run of fine stand-alone psychological thrillers (after House of Correction, 2020). When Ellie Falkner's husband, Greg, dies in a car crash, her perfect life is shattered. The situation is made worse by the fact he was not alone. The body of a woman named Milena Livingstone is also found in the wreck. Although rumors of his infidelity immediately begin to fly, Ellie, on a "conveyor belt of grief," refuses to accept what seems so obvious. She soon finds that proving that someone was involved in an affair is simple, while proving the opposite is something else again. Ellie insinuates herself under an assumed identity at Milena's party-planning firm. Following several unexpected twists, she becomes a murder suspect when she finds a dead body. The police and Ellie's friends are baffled by her behavior. Reading like a primer on what not to do when the level of suspicion and doubt around you escalates relentlessly, this book is a page-turner that many readers will likely devour in one sitting.
