About the book:
Megan is a suburban soccer mom who once upon a time walked on the wild side. Now she’s got two kids, a perfect husband, a picket fence, and a growing sense of dissatisfaction. Ray used to be a talented documentary photographer, but at age forty he finds himself in a dead-end job posing as a paparazzo. Jack is a detective who can’t let go of a cold case—a local husband and father disappeared seventeen years ago.
Even as the terrible consequences of long-ago events crash together in the present, three people hiding secrets that even those closest to them would never suspect, will find that the past doesn’t recede. And as each confronts the dark side of the American Dream—the boredom of a nice suburban life, the excitement of temptation, the desperation and hunger that can lurk behind even the prettiest facades—they will discover the hard truth that the line between one kind of life and another can be as whisper-thin as a heartbeat. This is a remarkable thriller which explores how we are defined by our own decisions and how present is inexorably defined by our past.
