Elisa Wright, the protagonist of this convoluted domestic suspense novel from Kane (Pretty Little Wife), is in a fragile mental state following a traumatic occurrence at her former job in administration at a Philadelphia hospital. Now, 11 months after the incident, she’s working from home part-time as an accountant and not venturing far from her neighborhood. Elisa becomes even more stressed after she learns that her brother-in-law, Josh Wright, just seven months after the mysterious disappearance of his fiancée, her friend Abby, is serious about a new woman. She’s shocked by Josh’s cavalier disregard for Abby’s fate and begins to believe that Josh knows more about Abby’s whereabouts than he’s admitting. When she voices this opinion, Josh and her husband urge her to see a therapist or get additional medication. Are these remedies what she needs, or are they merely a means of distracting her from discovering the truth? Kane does gaslighting scenes well, but they get repetitive after a while, and Eliza takes too long to take even tentative steps toward regaining her sense of self. Kane has enough talent to suggest she can do better next time. Agent: Laura Bradford, Bradford Literary. (Dec.)

Taylor Jenkins Reid

"I love it when I find a thriller so fun I can’t put it down, like this one from Darby Kane."

Wendy Corsi Staub

"Pretty Little Wife is domestic suspense at its best, with a chilling premise that keeps you guessing to the last page. Add Darby Kane to your must-read list!

BookPage

Pretty Little Wife explores the consequences of unacknowledged trauma and dares to ask whether murder is ever justified. It’s an exciting departure for HelenKay Dimon, the bestselling romance author for whom Darby Kane is a pseudonym. There’s certainly no guarantee of a happily ever after, though there is hope for hard-won redemption.

Toronto Star

Stylish and provocative...well-drawn new characters...subtle twists that nudge the plot in unexpected directions... Pretty Little Wife delivers on its promise.”

Booklist (starred review) on Pretty Little Wife

"Debut mystery author Kane blends tense domestic suspense with procedural details and legal thriller–like verbal sparring. A page-turner built on skillfully layered plotting and an intriguing protagonist."

Julie Clark

I devoured it in two days. This is the type of thriller I love the most: A taut domestic suspense with just a shade of police procedural woven in.
