I raced through this novel in one sitting. This Harlan Coben standalone thriller features a former special ops pilot who recently witness the fatal shooting of her husband. Maya’s final mission was just a few months ago and she still has nightmares. Now a single parent, she hires a nanny on the recommendation of her mother-in-law but is convinced by a friend to install a hidden nanny cam, for peace of mind. When the camera captures images of what looks like her deceased husband visiting their daughter, Maya flips out. What’s going on here? Maya moves her daughter to daycare and launches a private investigation that leads a twisty path through the recent past and pits her against her husband’s family. Fast-paced, intricate plotting, dramatic story-telling, and a resolution you hope would never happen in real life. Coben delivers a dark, twisted tale of secrets, lies, and murder.
