Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
"One seemingly perfect American family finds themselves targeted for destruction after the shocking murder of a family friend in the park behind their backyard. Early one morning, Danielle Roberts, who lives next door to the Pollitts and has for a decade been like family to them, is found dead just beyond their property line, throwing the exclusive Winding Creek neighborhood of a wealthy Austin suburb into chaos. The Pollitt family - dad Kyle, mom Iris, daughter Julia, and son Grant - are caught in a maelstrom of suspicion and intrigue. Ask your parents why they killed her, an anonymous email charges the son, Grant. No one can learn the truth now, thinks the father, Kyle. Never ask me what I'd do to protect my family, resolves the wife, Iris. I'll do whatever it takes to protect him, vows Julia of her best friend, Danielle's grieving teenage son, Ned, a boy in the midst of his own dangerous crisis, which may or may not have brought on his mother's murder"--Provided by publisher.

    The discovery of a murdered woman, Danielle Roberts, on a bench in a public park in a suburb of Austin, Texas, sets off a chain of events that shake a seemingly average family to its core. Abbott's new thriller digs deeply into the minds of the members of the Pollitt family, friends and neighbors to the dead woman, each of whom is affected by the murder in his or her own way. As curiosity about the woman's death grows, the suspicious eyes of the Pollitts turn to one another. The question looms: Could one of them have committed the crime? And who is sending anonymous messages to one of the Pollitt children? Who is threatening the Pollitt father? Abbott's use of multiple points of view is strikingly effective, providing a smart way of showing the reader the broad-strokes picture while zooming in and out to focus on specific details and moments. Questions stack up in the reader's mind until the urge to race through the book is virtually unstoppable. Another fine, suspenseful novel by a master of the psychological thriller.
