From the New York Times bestselling author Lisa Scottoline comes a fast-paced, thrilling new novel full of suspense and emotional justice.

John Himmel, widower and single father, has remarried a wonderful woman, Ellen, and for the first time in a long time he and his son are happy. But their lives are turned upside down when Ellen's daughter moves in with them. Anna is a drop-dead gorgeous sixteen-year-old with a secret dark side. Unbeknownst to everyone, Anna is not simply a selfish beauty, but a dangerously disturbed sociopath. Anna sets out to systematically destroy the new life John has built, and when she turns up dead, John is at the top of the suspect list. John begins his own investigation in order to clear his name and save his family, and what he discovers is darker than he could have ever imagined.
