But Liz threatens to ruin it all after severe depression forces her out of college and back home. After she attempts suicide, Richard rushes her off to a private hospital in hopes that the drama will soon blow over.
Run by Nick Jensen, the hospital seems to be exactly what Liz needs. But soon Nick uncovers some disquieting facts, like the fact that Liz’s depression arose at the exact same time that a classmate was presumed murdered. Liz’s uncanny knowledge of the crime’s details only deepens Nick’s unease.
As Liz attempts to heal, her parents’ marriage begins to crack in light of mutually held secrets coming to the surface. What is the Reynolds family hiding?
“A page turner with thrills and suspense around every corner and keeps you guessing until the very end!”
