A drunk-driving accident hides more than one dark secret in No. 1 bestseller Linwood Barclay's gripping thriller

Glen Garber's life has just spiralled out of control. His wife's car is found at the scene of a drunk-driving accident that took three lives. Not only is she dead, but it appears she was the cause of the accident.

Suddenly Glen has to deal with a potent mixture of emotions: grief at the loss of his wife, along with anger at her reckless behaviour that leaves their young daughter motherless. If only he could convince himself that Sheila wasn't responsible for the tragedy.

But as more and more secrets begin to surface, Glen may have to face something much, much worse . . .
