Ever wonder what your friends really think of you?
Drinks in hand, a group of neighbourhood women gather around a fire pit to enjoy a rare child-less Saturday night. Giddy with freedom, they drink too much, share secrets they wish, perhaps, they hadn't, and enjoy getting to know each other better.
The single newcomer. The imperfect mom. The new-born parents. The military wife. The almost divorcee.
Come Monday morning, one of them is gone.
As a police investigation launches, the women will band together and ask whether they should have noticed that something was amiss.
But how well can you really know your neighbours, when appearances can be so deceiving? The book that fans of Desperate Houswives and Liane Moriarty's HBO hit Big Little Lies have been waiting for.

'Well-drawn characters, a perfectly cast neighborhood and a great puzzle; what more could you want in your next read?' Catherine
'I highly enjoyed Strawser's sophomore novel, so much, in fact, that I read it every spare moment I had. If you like Liane Moriarty's novels, then I can really see you losing yourself in this one as well' Jenni
