Meet the trophy wives of Presidio Terrace, San Francisco’s most exclusive–and most deadly–neighborhood in this shrewd, darkly compelling novel from the New York Times bestselling author of In Her Shadow.
Brooke Davies is the new wife on the block. Her senator husband, fifteen years her senior, whisked her to the Bay Area via private jet and purchased a modest mansion on the same day. But the home she’s come to inhabit feels more like solitary confinement than a fresh start. Though Jack’s demanding job requires all of his attention, the neighborhood’s razor-sharp security policy means he has complete control over her every move. And just ten months into their marriage, she wonders if the man she fell in love with is worth the isolation.
Erin King, famed news anchor and chair of the community board, is no stranger to maintaining an image–though being married to a plastic surgeon helps. But the skyrocketing success of her career has worn her love life thin, and her professional ambitions have pushed Mason away. Quitting her job is a Hail Mary attempt at keeping him interested, to steer him away from finding a young trophy wife. But is it enough, and is Mason truly the man she thought he was?
Georgia St. Claire allegedly cashed in on the deaths of her first two husbands, earning her the nickname “Black Widow”–and the stares and whispers of her curious neighbors. Rumored to have murdered both men for their fortunes, she claims to have found true love in her third marriage, yet her mysterious, captivating allure keeps everyone guessing. Then a tragic accident forces the residents of Presidio Terrace to ask: Has Georgia struck again? And what is she really capable of doing to protect her secrets?
