Publisher's Summary

From the #1 New York Times bestselling author comes a psychological thriller exploring the things we dare to do when no one is looking...
The community along Oregon's Deschutes River is one of successful careers and perfect families. For years, up-and-comers Liz and Owen have admired their good friends and neighbors, Carole and David. They appear to have it all—security, happiness, and a beautiful young son, Charlie.
Then Charlie vanishes without a trace, and all that seemed safe is shattered by a tragedy that is incomprehensible—except to Liz.
It took one fleeting moment for her to change the lives of everyone she loves—a heartrending accident that can't be undone. Neither can the second-worst mistake of her life: concealing it. As two marriages crack and buckle in grief and fear, Liz retreats into her own dark place of guilt, escalating paranoia—and betrayals even she can't imagine. Because there's another good neighbor who has his own secrets, his own pain, and his own reasons for watching Liz's every move.
And only he knows that the mystery of the missing boy on the Deschutes River is far from over.

Most intense novel I've read in a long time!

“Oh, what a tangled web we weave...when first we practice to deceive.” Walter Scott, Marmion (1808)

Liz backed out of her garage and hit the three year old son of her neighbor who was unexpectedly in her driveway. She believed she had killed him, but rather than call 911 she did the wrong thing by deciding to cover up the accident.

Gregg Olsen has written a great story. It is well worth an Audible credit. Karen Peakes, who narrates other Olsen audio novels, does a wonderful job with this one.

Good book. Weak ending.

I rated it 3 stars because of ending. Unnecessarily abrupt, when it could have played out so much better.

Far fetched

Very unlike a Greg Olsen book. Plot was just reaching in order to sound complex or intriguing but it just looked like a weak effort
