A young woman becomes entangled in a terrifying web of deception and madness involving an elderly neighbor in this riveting domestic noir by Edgar-nominated author Hallie Ephron
When Evie Ferrante's mother is hospitalized, she arrives at the older woman's house to find it in utter chaos and filled to the brim. Has her mother become a hoarder? Sorting through her belongings, Evie discovers objects that don't quite belong there--expensive liquor in the garage, pricier than her mother's usual brand, and a new flat-screen TV on the wall--that raise questions. Where did her mother get the money for such lavish purchases?
Evie renews a friendship with Mina, an elderly neighbor who might know more about her mother's recent activities, but Mina has her own set of problems. As Evie investigates her mother's actions and digs into the events of the past few months, a dark, sinister story of deception and madness begins to unfold.
