The bestselling author and creator of the hit Netflix drama The Stranger proves that the past never truly fades away as the American dream becomes a nightmare in this shocking thriller. Megan is a suburban soccer mom who once upon a time walked on the wild side. Ray used to be a talented documentary photographer, but now finds himself in a dead-end job posing as a paparazzo. Broome is a detective who can't let go of a cold case. Three people living lives they never wanted are hiding secrets that even those closest to them would never suspect. And as each confronts the dark side of the American dream--the boredom of a nice suburban life, the excitement of temptation, the desperation and hunger that can lurk behind even the prettiest facades--they will discover the hard truth that the line between one kind of life and another can be as whisper-thin as a heartbeat.
