About the book
Sometimes the past refuses to stay hidden…
Rader-Day's signature blend of suspenseful storytelling and complex human emotions is on full display in THE DEATH OF US. The novel delves into the heart-wrenching story of Liss Kehoe, who has spent fifteen years trying to forget the rainy night Ashley Hay came to her doorstep and handed over her baby, Callan—born from an affair with Liss’s local golden boy husband—and then disappeared without a trace. But when Ashley's car is found in a murky pond on Kehoe property, Liss must face the truth about what happened and fight to keep her family safe.
As Liss struggles to protect her loved ones, she discovers that the small town she calls home is teeming with hidden secrets and betrayals. With everything she holds dear at stake, Liss must decide how far she's willing to go to uncover the truth and protect those she loves.
Reminiscent of the works of Tana French and Gillian Flynn, Rader-Day delivers a gripping novel that will keep you hooked from the first page to the last.
