From the international bestseller Katia Lief whose work Lisa Gardner calls “Mesmerizing” and Richard Montanari calls “Nail-biting suspense.”

A family gathers for the holidays in rural Connecticut, bringing with them confessions, accusations, demands. But suddenly personal agendas become meaningless as the priority shifts to survival. Two burglars break in, believing the house to be empty. In their panic they take the family hostage—and the crime that follows spirals out of control.

Story of intrigue and suspense as two men attempt to rob a home that they believe is vacant for a holiday vacation, but are confronted by the family in this exciting tale. I have read many of this writer's books and I highly recommend it.
