THE SCORCHING NEW THRILLER FROM THE AUTHOR OF THE GIRL ON THE TRAIN and INTO THE WATER
'What is wrong with you?'
Laura has spent most of her life being judged. She's seen as hot-tempered, troubled, a loner. Some even call her dangerous.

Innocent or guilty, everyone is damaged. Some are damaged enough to kill.
