Summary

James Patterson takes us on a twisting roller-coaster ride of thrills in his most gripping novel yet. This story of love, lust and dangerous secrets will have listeners' hearts pounding to the very last moment.

Lauren Stillwell is not your average damsel in distress. When the NYPD cop discovers her husband leaving a hotel with another woman, she decides to beat him at his own game. But her revenge goes dangerously awry, and she finds her world spiralling into a hell that becomes more terrifying by the hour.

In a further twist of fate, Lauren must take on a job that threatens everything she stands for. Now, she's paralysed by a deadly secret that could tear her life apart. With her job and marriage on the line, Lauren's desire for retribution becomes a lethal inferno as she fights to save her livelihood - and her life.

Best book I've listened to in a long, long time.

This is the best book I've listened to in a very long time. It's like a fast car race, your driving right then suddenly veer left, it doesn't lose it's pace throughout the whole story.

The main character, Lauren sees her husband, Paul, and a glamorous blonde going into an hotel and emerging a few hours later, she assumes that Paul is having an affair. In an act of revenge she embarks on an affair of her own with a work colleague, Scott. ( I don't want to give too much of the story away) however when Scott is found murdered, the story picks up at a breath taking speed.

Just when you think you've finished the jigsaw and can see the whole picture clearly, someone brings you an extra piece.

This is Patterson at his very best, can't recommend it highly enough.
