A governess becomes entangled with a dysfunctional and dangerous family in this novel by a New York Times–bestselling “master of suspense” (Mary Higgins Clark).

Finally liberated from her cruel and domineering mother, twenty-eight-year-old schoolteacher Jessica Abbott has accepted a position as governess in Hampden House, a crumbling plantation on the cliffs of St. Croix. Her charge is Leila Drew, the oppressed teenage daughter of a pathologically punishing mother. But the vulnerable girl is not Catherine Drew’s only victim.

For years, Catherine’s desperate husband, King, a man to whom Jessica is irresistibly drawn, has been searching for the means to a safe escape—for himself and Leila—from this ruin of a family. As Jessica becomes further entwined in the violent dynamics of the Drew family, she realizes Catherine’s wretched power may be grounded in a secret that has trapped not only King and Leila, but herself as well.

A recipient of the Mystery Writers of America Grand Master Award, Phyllis A. Whitney was hailed by Mary Higgins Clark as “a superb and gifted story teller, and a master of suspense. ”

This ebook features an illustrated biography of Phyllis A. Whitney including rare images from the author’s estate.

    "Har precis startat en provperiod hos Storytel och det är det bästa jag någonsin gjort. Att lyssna ger mig full koncentration på boken samtidigt som jag kan pyssla med annat."

    "Det bästa som har hänt mig på länge. Dessutom lyssnar jag på böcker som jag nog aldrig hade kommit mig för att läsa annars. Jag lyssnar i bilen, på promenaden eller när jag städar."
