Two lies. Small white ones. Designed to make the other feel better.
But that's how some lies start. Small. Well meaning. Until they get too big to handle.
For fans of Big Little Lies and The Couple Next Door comes an addictive psychological thriller that's already an international sensation.
When young lawyer Lily marries Ed, she's determined to make a fresh start. To leave the secrets of the past behind. But then she takes on her first murder case and meets Joe. A convicted murderer whom Lily is strangely drawn to. For whom she will soon be willing to risk almost anything.
But Lily is not the only one with secrets. Her next-door neighbor Carla may be only nine, but she has already learned that secrets are powerful things. That they can get her whatever she wants.
When Lily finds Carla on her doorstep 16 years later, a chain of events is set in motion that can end only one way.
