Harry Ackerson has always considered his stepmother Alice to be sexy and beautiful, in an 'otherworldly' way. She has always been kind and attentive, if a little aloof in the last few years. Days before his college graduation, Alice calls with shocking news. His father is dead and the police think it's suicide. Shortly after he arrives, Harry meets a mysterious young woman named Grace McGowan. Though she claims to be new to the area, Harry begins to suspect that Grace may not be a complete stranger to his family. But she isn't the only attractive woman taking an interest in Harry. The sensual Alice is also growing closer, coming on to him in an enticing, clearly sexual way. Mesmerized by these two women, Harry finds himself falling deeper under their spell. Yet the closer he gets to them, the more isolated he feels, disoriented by a growing fear that both women are hiding dangerous--even deadly--secrets ... and that neither one is telling the truth.

This book was difficult to finish. The only likeable character is Harry. I read until the end to see what happened but it was tough. I loved The Kind Worth Killing but I can’t really recommend this Peter Swanson novel.

The books is indeed filled with lies -- the lies we tell ourselves to push the reset switch and the lies we tell others. Oh what a tangled web we weave. . . Told from multiple POVs it is difficult to find a character besides young Harry to root for and even he seems to be stuck in one rut after another. In the end there seems to be a poetic justice that prevails despite the attempts to flee from past sins.
