Summary
"Police investigator Susan Adler is ready to close the book on a deadly car accident, but after the medical examiner discovers evidence of foul play, she knows she has a murder on her hands. The victim was the wealthy wife of Randall Brock, a renowned psychiatrist who treats patients with disturbing, brutal fantasies. And just like that, Susan's got a suspect. Randall has a violent past but knows he didn't kill his wife. In the midst of his crushing grief, Randall receives a visit from a stranger with information to share about his wife's death. But there's a catch: in exchange for the stranger's information, Randall must reveal dark secrets he's kept hidden for years. As this shady figure applies more pressure and Susan closes in, Randall begins to doubt himself, clinging desperately to the pieces of his sanity. Revelations and suspicious coincidences send shock waves through the investigation, and circumstances spin out of control. Susan must race to put it all together before it's too late--before the next murder strikes too close to home."--Publisher description

Review
  • Early in this exciting police procedural from Farrell (What Have You Done), New York State police investigator Susan Adler arrives at the scene of a fatal auto accident, where she meets state policeman Tommy Corolla. The driver, philanthropist Amanda Brock, appears to have driven her car off a mountain road and fallen to the rocks below. Adler and Corolla soon discover evidence that points to murder, and the victim’s psychologist husband, Randall Brock, comes under scrutiny. As the pressure mounts, Randall, who’s desperate to prove his innocence, is visited by a mysterious stranger, who claims to know who committed the crime. However, the information the stranger offers comes at a price: Randall must reveal details of an incident from his youth, one he would prefer to forget. Meanwhile, Adler and Corolla delve deeper into Amanda’s life and begin to realize that Randall isn’t the only suspect hiding the truth. The high-energy narrative swerves into surprising and terrifying territory before slamming into its truly chilling finale. Farrell takes the reader down some dark and twisting paths. Agent: Curtis Russell, P.S. Literary. (Aug.) --Staff (Reviewed 06/24/2019) (Publishers Weekly, vol 266, issue 25, p)
  • A fatal car crash off a cliff in New York's Hudson Valley turns out to be homicide. Farrell (What Have You Done, 2018) opens with a gruesome prologue set in a basement, where an unnamed dying man chained to a wall surveys two corpses while hearing noises upstairs. Chapter 1 jumps to psychologist Randall Brock's research on talk-therapy methods designed to reduce and eliminate patients' homicidal fantasies. Brock himself becomes a murder suspect after his wealthy philanthropist wife, Amanda, dies in an automobile accident the same night she's received a humanitarian award. Police officer Susan Adler leads the investigation; she's a single mother struggling to balance her commitment to criminal analysis while raising two sons whose father fails to take them on a promised ski trip to Vermont. Adler's attractive new partner, Tommy Corolla, charms Adler and her children and wants to take her out after the case closes; he suspects Brock: "It's always the husband." The night of the accident, a mysterious stranger catches Brock's attention at the awards dinner, then shows up at his office after Amanda's death. The stranger knows about the death of Brock's brother when they were children, declares to Brock that Amanda was murdered, claims to have seen the whole thing, and offers to tell Brock who killed her in exchange for Brock's revealing his own truths, although the arrangement will be off if Brock tells police about their encounters. The stranger seals the deal by revealing one of Amanda's dirty secrets. Heavy-handed exposition sometimes weighs down the dialogue, short sentences the author uses to close chapters fall flat, and some of the plot twists are predictable. An intriguing premise inexpertly executed. (Kirkus Reviews, June 1, 2019)
