Summary, etc.:
"When a young man is found gruesomely murdered on a London houseboat, it triggers questions about three women who knew him. Laura is the troubled one-night stand last seen in the victim's home. Carla is his grief-stricken aunt, already mourning the recent death of yet another family member. And Miriam is the nosy neighbor clearly keeping secrets from the police. Three women with separate connections to the victim. Three women who are, for different reasons, simmering with resentment. Who are, whether they know it or not, burning to right the wrongs done to them. When it comes to revenge, even good people might be capable of terrible deeds. How far might any one of them go to find peace? How long can secrets smolder before they explode into flame?"--Back cover.

    *Starred Review* Here is the long-awaited third riveting thriller from the best-selling author of Into the Water (2017) and the global phenomenon that was The Girl on the Train (2015). A young man is found murdered in a London houseboat. Three damaged women have connections with him—some tenuous, some intense. Laura, who identifies as a "vulnerable adult," has multiple social-behavior issues. A hit-and-run accident in her childhood left her broken physically and mentally and, eventually, psychically as well. Carla, the victim's aunt, is still coming to terms with the son she lost years ago and with the recent death of her sister, Angela, whom she held responsible for her son's catastrophic end. The victim is her nephew, Angela's son. The third woman, Miriam, not only snoops, she also keeps a notebook! Laura describes her as a hobbit. She moves with "legs heavy as her heart." Miriam survived an abduction at age 15 that claimed the life of her best friend. A fourth character, the poignant Irene, is a marvel of creation. Readers will witness courage and ingenuity where it is least expected, satisfying revenge where none was thought possible, and salvation that is painfully long overdue. Lee Child calls Hawkins an "intensely human" writer, and this book puts her on a par with the supreme Ruth Rendell. Packed with OMG moments, this novel may be slow burning, but it's a scorcher nonetheless.HIGH-DEMAND BACKSTORY: That girl on the train continues to assure that Hawkins will draw readers, and her latest repays the investment handsomely.

    *Starred Review* In Hawkins' latest a young artist is found murdered on his houseboat. Suspects abound. There's Laura, suffering lasting brain damage from a childhood accident; the victim's aunt, Carla, who is tormented by her child's death; the neighbor, Miriam, who was abducted as a teen; and there is Irene, a woman of a "certain age" who is so easily underestimated. Each has secrets that continue to unfold, complicated backgrounds, and strong ties to the victim. Scattered within the story are excerpts from a bestseller written by Carla's husband, Theo—a novel about a young woman who's been abducted and whose plight strongly parallels Miriam's encounter. British reader Pike is a marvel. She gives each woman a distinctive voice and allows the male characters to sound convincing. Pike is particularly sensitive to context clues and weeps, shouts, chuckles, and sings when called upon by the text. Hawkins' plot is once again involving and the characters are complex. Listeners will be shocked by the turns and revelations so perfectly read by Pike, and drawn into the unfolding mystery. Like Hawkins' previous titles, this thrilling story of guilt, revenge, and redemption builds to a satisfying conclusion. There is sure to be a demand. Copyright 2021 Booklist Reviews.
