Why would a happy wife end her life?
In the early hours of a summer morning, a young woman steps into the path of an oncoming bus. A tragic accident? Or suicide?
At the center of this puzzle is Adrian Wolfe, a successful architect and grief-stricken widower. A year after his third wife's death, Adrian begins to investigate the cause. As he looks back on their brief but seemingly happy marriage, disturbing secrets begin to surface. The divorces from his two previous wives had been amicable, or so it seemed; his children, all five of them, were resilient as ever, or so he thought. But something, or someone, must have pushed Maya over the edge in this gripping, psychologically nuanced story about a "perfect" marriage and the broken pieces left behind.
"[An] emotionally intelligent, brilliantly plotted and beautifully written examination of a very modern family that will keep you gripped to the end."-Daily Mail
