Fiction

In this domestic thriller by the author of The Perfect Girlfriend, a woman fulfills her late friend’s last wish only to uncover a terrifying web of lies. Nina and Marie were best friends—until Nina was diagnosed with a terminal illness. Before she died, Nina asked Marie to fulfill her final wishes. But her mistake was in thinking Marie was someone she could trust. What Nina didn’t know was that Marie always wanted her beautiful life, and that Marie has an agenda of her own. She’ll do anything to get what she wants. Marie thinks she can keep her promise to her friend’s family on her own terms. But what she doesn’t know is that Nina was hiding explosive secrets of her own . . . “[A] gripping thriller . . . Everybody has a nasty side, but that’s just one of the pleasures of this cunning whodunit. A devious plot is another. Hamilton knows how to keep the pages turning.” —Publishers Weekly “If there ever was a story about being careful what you wish for, this is it. A phenomenal read!” —Hannah Mary McKinnon, international bestselling author of Sister Dear “I could not tear myself away as Marie claimed the life of her dead friend Nina with devastating consequences. This is a five-star, one-sitting read.” —Fiona Cummins, bestselling author of Rattle
