A journalist begins to question everything she knows about her mother’s murder in a startling novel of suspense by the New York Times bestselling author of The Body Reader.

Culpable in an exposé gone tragically wrong, investigative journalist Jupiter Bellarose takes her boss’s advice: head back to her hometown for a fluff piece and get her world in balance. But in Savannah, the past is waiting.

Twenty years ago Jupiter’s mother, actress and celebrated beauty Marie Nova, was murdered, leaving many in her wake: Jupiter’s father, who has erased memories of his wife’s murder with alcohol. The matriarch of the cosmetics company who helped make Marie a star—and who takes every opportunity to reopen old wounds. Then there’s the fragile cop with blood on his hands, and the killer whose confession no longer seems convincing.

With so many lingering questions, Jupiter must revisit the grisly event that has influenced every decision in her life. Maybe her homecoming will bring closure.

Or maybe the worst is yet to come.

Jupiter Bellrose is an investigative journalist working in Minnesota. So when the latest article left her in such a mental state, Jupiter decides to go to Savannah, Georgia, where once when she was a teenager, her mother, who was an uprising actress was brutally murdered and dismembered. Together with Ian, who was a police cop at the time, they try to find the secret behind the murder even though the culprit is already caught and is already behind bars.

This was in my opinion, an OK thriller. Not fast paced as I liked it to be but not a slow burn either. There were some boring parts in the story but overall, it was OK. There were some twists and turns and the book mainly talks about Jupiter’s past and mental state. Overall, it was a good thriller. Worth four stars.

Many thanks to Netgalley and the publisher for the ARC. The review is based on my honest opinion only.
