Overview

In this gripping psychological thriller, a holiday home invasion becomes a dangerous battle of wills when an artistic family is pitted against a pair of career burglars. 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.

    This world is scarey

    Every time I read a book with a theme like this I can't help but wonder what has happened to this world. I was drawn into the story and read faster and faster to find out the end.

    I reccomend thia book for an exciting ride.

    Good Read

    The characters have some depth to them. The way she writes makes you pay attention to the relationships to each character to the family. Surprise ending. I will purchase another of her books.

    Captivating

    Made me a real fan of Katia Lief. Lined up the rest of her books and kept on reading til there were no more. Can't wait til the next one comes out.

    WOULD NOT READ MORE THAN ONCE

    The book was fine. At first I was intrigued, but I quickly lost interest. I was able to finish it in a sitting, but I only finished it because I hate to stop books partway through. The characters were well developed, but the story plot took too many ridiculous turns. I would not recommend this book to a friend.
