Pulled into a deadly game of deception, secrets, and lies, a woman must find the truth in order to defeat a mysterious opponent, protect her daughter, and save her own life in this dazzling standalone psychological thriller with an unforgettable ending from the New York Times bestselling author of Woman with a Secret and The Monogram Murders.

You thought you knew who you were. A stranger knows better.

You've left the city--and the career that nearly destroyed you--for a fresh start on the coast. But trouble begins when your daughter withdraws, after her new best friend, George, is unfairly expelled from school.

You beg the principal to reconsider, only to be told that George hasn't been expelled. Because there is, and was, no George.

Who is lying? Who is real? Who is in danger? Who is in control? As you search for answers, the anonymous calls begin--a stranger, who insists that you and she share a traumatic past and a guilty secret. And then the caller threatens your life. . . .

This is Justine's story. This is Justine's family. This is Justine's game. But it could be yours.

One of the most convoluted, unbelievable plots ever. Kept reading because the first half just set things up and to see if there was going to be a plausible explanation. No luck on that score. Don’t bother with this one.

2015 (UK) and 2016 (North America); William Morrow

For some reason Justine and her family (husband and daughter) are moving to another city, and she is excited to not be working. As we move a few chapters into the book, we find out that Justine's daughter, Ellen is devastated that her friend (that no one knew about) George has been expelled. Also, Ellen has been working day and night on a short story assignment from school. Justine decides to visit the principal and finds out that George doesn't exist. So what does this mean?

Yes, what does this mean???!!! I read FOUR HUNDRED and SIXTY-FOUR pages and I have no clue what happened other than implausible fantasy or crazy Wonderland stuff. I can't even review this book because I don't know what is a spoiler! The positive is that Hannah writes well. After reading more reviews on this book - which are mixed - I think I want to try Hannah's series (Spilling CID) before making decisions on the author. I rarely say don't read the book - I feel like after you read my review you can judge if it's something you want to pursue - but this one I would say...read something else!

Moves quickly at first, then slows, but sucks you in. Can become a little drawn out towards the end. The ending is not what I would've expected, though. A good mysterious read.

This mystery is reminiscent of an adult version of Lemony Snicket's "A Series of Unfortunate Events". It is dark, sometimes violent, sometimes sarcastically funny, and just plain weird. The story-line is interesting for the most part, but it quickly starts to unravel and become messy near the end.

Most of the characters are likable (if not believable), especially Figgy. He is a little grey Bedlington Terrier puppy who doesn't do much, but is cute all the same.

don't waste your time, ridiculous story. I'm surprised I even finished it, but I kept hoping it was going to get better, sadly it didn't.

Finally finished it and I'm angry with myself for wasting time on such a ridiculous story!

Complicated and very, very unrealistic. Pass on this one.

Long-winded, ridiculous story. Reminiscent of the Famous Five, except Enid Blyton did it better.
