Happy Pub Day!!
Riveting, Intense, Edge of Your Seat Read
This book was twisted and creepy and had me staying up really late several nights because quite frankly, I was too caught up in the book to realize the time and I may or may not have been too scared to sleep. Even when I turned off the light and all the next day, I found myself thinking about the book and counting down the minutes until I could read it again and find out what the heck happened!
I thought the eye on the cover looked like Nicole Kidman’s eye, so I kept picturing her as Claire. I think she would make a good Claire.
I would like to thank Netgalley and Random House-Ballantine for my copy in exchange for my honest review.
A struggling actor, a Brit in America without a green card, Claire needs work and money to survive. Then she gets both. But nothing like she expected.Claire agrees to become a decoy for a firm of divorce lawyers. Hired to entrap straying husbands, she must catch them on tape with their seductive propositions.The rules? Never hit on the mark directly. Make it clear you’re available, but he has to proposition you, not the other way around. The firm is after evidence, not coercion. The innocent have nothing to hide.Then the game changes.When the wife of one of Claire’s targets is violently murdered, the cops are sure the husband is to blame. Desperate to catch him before he kills again, they enlist Claire to lure him into a confession.
Claire can do this. She’s brilliant at assuming a voice and an identity. For a woman who’s mastered the art of manipulation, how difficult could it be to tempt a killer into a trap?
But who is the decoy . . . and who is the prey?
