Just a few years ago, Corie Geller was busting terrorists for the FBI. But at thirty-five, she traded in her badge for the stability of marriage and motherhood. Between cooking meals, playing chauffeur, and weekly lunches with her fellow Shorehaven freelancers life is, as they say, fine.

But Corie senses that something’s off. Pete Delaney, a milquetoast package designer, is up to something. Corie intuitively feels that Pete has a secret—and as someone who is accustomed to keeping her FBI past from her new neighbors, she should know. But does Pete really have a shady alternate life, or is Corie just imagining things, desperate to add some spark to her humdrum suburban existence? She decides that the only way to find out is to dust off her FBI toolkit and take a deep dive into Pete Delaney’s affairs. Always sassy, smart, and wickedly witty, Susan Isaacs is at her formidable best in a novel that is both bitingly wry and ominously thrilling.
