From the “master of clever misdirection” (Kirkus Reviews) comes an irresistible psychological thriller featuring a newly married woman whose life is turned upside down when her husband goes missing.

"This is a psychological thriller you’ll think you have all figured out—but I promise you, you don’t."—Parade


A handsome psychotherapist. 

His lonely wife. 

And in his home office ceiling, a vent . . .

You’d listen too, wouldn’t you? (You know you would.)

Newlyweds Sam Statler and Annie Potter are head over heels, and excited to say good-bye to New York and start a life together in Sam’s sleepy hometown upstate. Or, it turns out, a life where Annie spends most of her time alone while Sam, her therapist husband, works long hours in his office, tending to the egos of his (mostly female) clientele.

Little does Sam know that through a vent in the ceiling, every word of his sessions can be heard from the room upstairs. The pharmacist’s wife, contemplating a divorce. The well-known painter whose boyfriend doesn’t satisfy her in bed. Who could resist eavesdropping? Everything is fine until the French girl in the green Mini Cooper shows up, and Sam disappears into thin air, throwing a wrench into Sam and Annie’s happily ever after.

Six friends.

One college reunion.

One unsolved murder.


Jessica Miller plans to triumphantly return to Duquette University for her ten-year reunion festivities. She's the most successful out of her entire group of friends, and she's ready to flaunt her achievements...even though her "friend group," known on campus as the East House Seven, doesn't really exist anymore.


Ten years ago, Heather, one of their own, was murdered, fracturing the once close group. And then another friend was accused of committing the vile act, shattering whatever friendly feelings remained. Jessica thinks she's coming back to campus to bask in a wave of glory. She and her friends have no idea that someone has set an elaborate trap to catch the real killer and close the cold case for good.

A true crime podcast host covering a controversial trial finds herself drawn deep into a small town’s dark past.
Ever since her true-crime podcast became an overnight sensation and set an innocent man free, Rachel Krall has become a household name—and the last hope for people seeking justice.


The new season of Rachel's podcast has brought her to a small town being torn apart by a devastating rape trial. A local golden boy has been accused of raping the beloved granddaughter of the police chief. Rachel throws herself into the investigation—but mysterious letters keep coming, insisting her sister Jenny's death twenty-five years ago was actually a murder, and one anonymous letter asking for her help. The past and present start to collide as Rachel uncovers startling connections between the two cases—and a revelation that will change the course of the trial and the lives of everyone involved.


Electrifying and propulsive, The Night Swim asks: What is the price of a reputation? Can a small town ever right the wrongs of its past? And what really happened to Jenny?
