Summary, etc.:
From Alafair Burke-New York Times bestselling author of the runaway hit, The Wife-comes another twisty tale of domestic noir. When a prominent Manhattan lawyer is murdered, two estranged sisters-one the dead man's widow, the other his ex-must set aside mistrust and old resentments . . . but can they escape their past? Though Hannah was the younger of the two Taylor sisters, she always seemed to be in charge. She was the honor roll student with big dreams and an even bigger work ethic. Nicole was always restless . . . and more than a little reckless-the opposite of her ambitious little sister. She floated from job to job and man to man, and stayed close to home in Cleveland. For a while, it seemed like both sisters had found happiness. Hannah earned a scholarship to an Ivy League school and moved to New York City, where she landed a coveted publishing job. Nicole married promising young attorney Graham McIntosh, and gave birth to a baby boy they named Ian. The Taylor sisters became virtual strangers. Now, more than fifteen years later, their lives are drastically different-and Hannah is married to Graham. When he's murdered by a masked intruder at the couple's East Hampton beach house, Hannah reluctantly allows her teenaged stepson's biological mother-her estranged sister, Nicole-back into her life. But when the police begin to treat Ian as a suspect in his father's death, the two sisters are forced to unite . . . and to confront the truth behind family secrets they have tried to bury in the past.
