A masterful thriller from an extraordinary new voice in passion and suspense—Margaret Carroll

Christina achieved unparalleled wealth and prestige when she married Jason Cardiff, Wall Street wizard and Mayflower descendant. But once the cracks in the union began to show, even the towering privet hedges surrounding their East Hampton estate could not contain the dark rumors.

Then everything came crashing down . . .

At an exclusive Midwest rehab center, Christina receives the shocking news that Jason has been found dead in their swimming pool. The discovery that she's a murder suspect shatters her newfound sobriety and propels her back into the dangerous arms of Daniel Cunningham—the mysterious blue-collar worker who may have been present the night of Jason's death. But her rekindled affair could cost Christina her son, her fortune, and her life—and if she cannot conquer her re-emergent demons, the truth and the tide will drag her under permanently.

A Suspense read that made my head spin. At times I couldn't figure out if I was reading the events in the present or the past. The scenarios switched like playing a game of Hopscotch.

No romance and the suspense was tepid. too many things going on at the same time and the the storyline was all over the place. could not relate to the characters because they were all superficial. sorry.

Alcoholic Christina Cardiff enters rehab in an exclusive facility in the Midwest to deal with her drinking problem. Her school age son Tyler is vacationing in France with his paternal grandparents and her spouse Jason fails to accompany her; instead he chose to remain in the Hamptons or Manhattan. She is not sure which. She is there for a few days when she learns her Wall St spouse Jason is dead found in the pool. Forced out of rehab and back to East Hampton, she returns to alcohol and her lover Daniel Cunningham. As Daniel takes over much of her life, Christina receives a second shocker when the police suspect her of killing her husband. While she tries to remain sober, she also faces a real threat over custody of Tyler. This is a powerful vivid character study with no engaging protagonists as the cast is hedonistic and selfish. The profound story line looks deep at a self-destructive individual who has plenty going for her yet seems to always be in the wrong place at the wrong time. With a suspenseful final spin into a deadly RIPTIDE, Margaret Carroll provides the audience with a strong thriller. Harriet Klausner

Another winner from Margaret Carroll! From the first page to the last, I could not put this one down. The characterization was impeccable and the plot development impressive. This is a well-developed and exciting novel. The story invites us into another world of intrigue and suspense. Once again, I felt like I was right there, with the characters, as they negotiated the impressive worlds they live in. Wonderful story!
