About the Book:
In a quiet neighborhood in the wealthy Austin suburb of Lakehaven, the body of Danielle Roberts is discovered on a park bench. Danielle was a beloved member of the community, an adoption consultant who delivered the joy of parenthood to a number of local families. Her murder shocks Lakehaven. Perhaps no other family is as crushed as the Pollitts, who lived two houses down from Danielle and thought of her almost like family. Her death becomes the catalyst for a maelstrom of suspicion and intrigue. You have been told a huge lie, an anonymous email charges the son, Grant. No one can learn the truth now, thinks the father, Kyle. Never ask me what I'd do to protect my family, resolves the wife, Iris. I'll do whatever it takes to save him, vows the daughter, Julia, of Danielle's grieving teenage son. The Pollitts always thought they'd always be there for each other. When each begins to suspect the others of the unimaginable, the strength of their bonds will be tested in extraordinary new ways. The latest from New York Times bestselling author Jeff Abbott ishis most suspenseful thriller yet: a riveting tale of the dangerous secrets one family has concealed -- and what happens when the question each Pollitt hoped they'd never be asked threatens to expose their darkest truths.

Never ask me what I won’t do for him, because I will do anything to give him a wonderful, fulfilling life.

What an excellent book. Features a strong cast of characters, believable characters, that carry on in spite of their pasts. I liked that it showed the flaws in each of these characters but also the love they held for those close to them. Iris is a brave, strong woman who doesn't always get it right but loves her children. The author is a great storyteller and writes using vivid descriptions of his characters, and events. I appreciate that he writes about a strong woman who is protecting her children at any cost. Looking forward to more of these thrillers by this author, Abbott knows how to hold the reader's attention. Each chapter gives just enough information to leave the reader eager for more. The result is a complex story intricately woven and expertly paced—a page turner from start to finish.

Never ask her how long she can keep a secret.
