Shortly after Alan and Lauren welcome their affluent new neighbors—a legend in women’s rights law and his beautiful wife—the couple hosts a housewarming party that ends in quiet disaster. One guest, a young widow, elects to spend the night after indulging in too much wine, only to wake the next morning with no memory beyond getting ready for bed. Aware that something went terribly wrong, she goes to the police, starting a chain of events that will have devastating consequences for everyone involved.
A national celebrity is soon accused of rape—with eerie similarities to another notorious Colorado case. Lauren, a deputy DA, and detective Sam Purdy both learn facts they can’t share with Alan, but Alan discovers that he has a most unusual perspective into what truly happened after the housewarming. Before he can decipher the puzzle, a crucial witness is murdered. Alan fears that other witnesses—people he loves—could be next.

Stephen White is a clinical psychologist and the New York Times bestselling author of sixteen novels, including Kill Me and Dry Ice. He lives in Colorado.From AudioFile:
Even with the ebullient reading of Dick Hill, the first half of this book is talky and full of psychobabble. Then, midway, thanks to Hill, the story takes on some life. After psychologist Allan Gregory acquires some new neighbors, a seeming "acquaintance rape" occurs during a housewarming, there's an inexplicable accident, and to top it all, an arson. It's the latter that puts Gregory and his son, Jonas, in mortal danger. And it's here, also, that Hill is at his best, keeping you on the edge of your seat. White finally has Gregory put all the pieces together, and you come away satisfied, thanks to perseverance and utter faith in Hill. A.L.H. © AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine
