9780061356186: Lying With Strangers

Peyton Shields had always wanted to be a doctor, and now, thanks to her relentless drive, stellar academic credentials, and a mountain of debt to Harvard Medical School, she's a first-year resident at a major Boston children's hospital. The hours are impossibly long, but it's the life she wants, complete with a husband who's an up-and-coming young lawyer.

But a late-night drive home in a heavy snowstorm changes everything. A car coming straight at her forces her off the road and into a frozen pond. Peyton knows she'd be dead if a stranger hadn't pulled her from the wreckage before vanishing into the darkness.

In an instant her wonderful life has turned dark. No one believes her claims that the "accident" was deliberate—not even her husband. Without explanation, he has become distant and bitter, calling her paranoid and accusing her of having an affair with a former lover.

Yet the terror has only begun, for a series of strange, increasingly dangerous events begin to plague Peyton, moving her closer to a faceless and very deadly enemy who seems to know her every move.

About the Author:

James Grippando is a New York Times bestselling author of twenty-five novels. He was a trial lawyer for twelve years before the publication of his first novel in 1994 (The Pardon), and later served as counsel at Boies Schiller & Flexner LLP. He lives in South Florida with his wife, three children, two cats, and a golden retriever named Max who has no idea that he’s a dog.

From AudioFile:

James Grippando takes a break from his Jack Swytek series. Alyssa Bresnahans precise delivery makes it easy to follow the story of Peyton Shields and Kevin Stokes, a couple having trouble with the truth, who are allowing their lives to be molded by a psychopath. Every time something is revealed, more remains hidden. Bresnahan portrays the many and varied characters inhabiting the book with aplomb. She gives each character a distinct identity and never drifts into caricature. This is demonstrated especially well with the character of Peytons lawyer, whom Bresnahan manages to play as shady but likable. The story ratchets up to a nice twist at the end.
