Mia Hamilton lived the perfect life with her husband, university teacher Zach, and their two-year-old daughter. But everything changed when Zach committed suicide on the same night one of his students vanished. Five years later, just when Mia is beginning to heal, stranger Alison walks into her life, saying her husband didn't kill himself. Fragile, slight Alison leads Mia on a path into Zach's past, and Mia begins to think she never really knew her own husband.

I was drawn into this story and all of its twists and turns and couldn't wait for my next 'listen'. Although there were a couple of times where I really had to suspend disbelief in the narrative, it nonetheless hung together and led to an unexpected jolt of an ending.

Anna Fox lives alone - a recluse in her New York City home, unable to venture outside. She spends her day drinking wine (maybe too much), watching old movies, recalling happier times...and spying on her neighbors. Then the Russells move into the house across the way: a father, mother, their teenaged son. The perfect family. But when Anna, gazing out her window one night, sees something she shouldn't, her world begins to crumble. And its shocking secrets are laid bare.

This is a gripping story with the best narration, to my ear, of the many Audible books to which I have listened. It's hard to believe that this is A. J. Finn's first book! He must have been brewing the story for a long time and then out it poured. He included so many fascinating references, timing their entries perfectly with the story. And, the narrator skillfully made clear all the voices - the movies, words spoken, words thought. Thank you for a great listen! I'm already looking forward to Finn's next book.
