Mary Higgins Clark Award Winner!


Juliet Townsend is used to losing. Back in high school, she lost every track team race to her best friend, Madeleine Bell. Ten years later, she’s still running behind, stuck in a dead-end job cleaning rooms at the Mid-Night Inn, a one-star motel that attracts only the cheap or the desperate. But what life won’t provide, Juliet takes. 

Then one night, Maddy checks in. Well-dressed, flashing a huge diamond ring, and as beautiful as ever, Maddy has it all. By the next morning, though, Juliet is no longer jealous of Maddy—she’s the chief suspect in her murder.

To protect herself, Juliet investigates the circumstances of her friend’s death. But what she learns about Maddy’s life might cost Juliet everything she didn’t realize she had.

From the Trade Paperback edition.

From Publishers Weekly

Apr 20, 2015 – Former high school runner Juliet Townsend, the narrator of Rader-Day's disturbing second novel (after 2014's The Black Hour), is stuck in a job at the seedy Mid-Night Inn in her Indiana hometown when a friend she hasn't seen in 10 years, Maddy Bell, checks in at the motel, sporting a diamond ring and other trappings of a glamorous urban lifestyle. Juliet, still smarting from playing second fiddle to Maddy on the track, fails to process indications of disquiet beneath the glittering facade until she finds Maddy's body hanging from a balcony railing the next day. Juliet begins to sift through her memories and accounts of those who knew Maddy including high school classmates and staff to reconcile her old friend's past and present and to uncover the killer. Although alert mystery fans may spot the perpetrator before the denouement, the musings on roads taken and not taken will resonate with anyone wishing they could rewrite their youth.
