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.
