finished reading

After reading a locked-door mystery by this author yesterday, I looked up the author's domestic thrillers and this was available at the library so I read it today.  It's convoluted, twisty, utterly unbelievable and unput-downable!  I couldn't wait to see what would happen next.  What a twisty thrill.  The characters are unlikeable but that's part of the fun.  All I wanted was for baby Cora to be safe.

From the publisher:
How well do you know the couple next door? Or your husband? Or even—yourself?  

People are capable of almost anything. . . 

A domestic suspense debut about a young couple and their apparently friendly neighbors—a twisty, rollercoaster ride of lies, betrayal, and the secrets between husbands and wives. . . 

Anne and Marco Conti seem to have it all—a loving relationship, a wonderful home, and their beautiful baby, Cora. But one night when they are at a dinner party next door, a terrible crime is committed. Suspicion immediately focuses on the parents. But the truth is a much more complicated story.

Inside the curtained house, an unsettling account of what actually happened unfolds. Detective Rasbach knows that the panicked couple is hiding something. Both Anne and Marco  soon discover that the other is keeping secrets, secrets they've kept for years. 

What follows is the nerve-racking unraveling of a family—a chilling tale of  deception, duplicity, and unfaithfulness that will keep you breathless until the final shocking twist.

Oh yeah, this was a thrill ride. I don't know why Lapena's books aren't made into movies. I think her writing and reveals are very cinematic.
