What is the difference between justice and revenge? In this buzzworthy new standalone thriller by New York Times bestselling author Lisa Unger, two wronged women on very different paths find themselves in the same dark place...

Claudia Bishop's perfect life fell apart when the aftermath of a brutal assault left her with a crumbling marriage, a newborn daughter, and a constant sense of anxiety about the world around her. Now, looking for a fresh start with a home restoration project and growing blog, Claudia takes on a crumbling old house--one that unbeknownst to her has an ugly history and may hide long buried secrets.

For Zoey Drake the defining moment of her childhood was the horrific home invasion murder of her parents. Years later, she has embraced the rage that fuels her. Training in the martial arts has made her strong and ready to face the demons from the past--and within.

Strangers to each other, and walking very different paths in the wake of trauma, these two women are on a collision course--because Zoey's past nightmare and Claudia's dreams for her future take place in the very same house. As Zoey seeks justice, and Claudia seeks peace, both will confront the monsters at the door that are the most frightening of all.

I never know quite where I am going when I start reading one of Lisa Unger's books, but I'm delighted to go along for the ride with her. I have read everything the library has by this author, and I am always thoroughly intrigued and entertained by her stories. If you like mysteries with a twist, do try one of her novels, they are unique and gripping. A word of warning, though, they are extremely hard to put down. I read all day Sunday and well past my bedtime yesterday to finish the story!

Once again Unger creates a thriller which you can not put down. There are two separate parallel stories of two strong women conquering the fears of previous life experiences which finally converge in an explosive conclusion. Not all aspects of their stories are apparent and are uncovered and revealed in their own time. Their paths to redemption and freedom from their pasts are memorable and inspiring. One of her best books. Looking forward to her next adventure.
