Excerpt from Goodreads:
For fans of The Secret History and How to Get Away With Murder comes an exciting new voice in suspense fiction.

Ten years working as a prosecutor have left Meredith Delay jaded and unsure of what she wants out of life. She’s good at her job, but it haunts her. Her boyfriend wants her to commit, but she keeps him at arm’s length. Then Meredith is assigned to a high-profile prosecution involving the violent murder of a fallen hockey star. At first, it appears to be just another case to work. But when her old friend Julian is accused of the murder, it takes on a whole new dimension.

Meredith, Julian, Jonathan, and Lily were a tight-knit group in law school. But now, Jonathan’s defending Julian, and Lily’s loyalties aren’t clear. And when Julian invokes a rare—and risky—defense, Meredith is forced to confront their past.

Has something they played at as students finally been brought to death?

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I received an e-copy of this ARC in exchange for my honest review.
From the very first page, I was hooked. The main character, Meredith, questioning herself over the events that led her to be in the cottage by the ocean. The next chapter goes back in time, explaining Merediths life. The woes of her career path and the toll it takes on her psyche, interferes with all her relationships.
The time jump goes futher back in time to her college days, explaining her relationship with three friends, who all become vital participants in Merediths present life.
Half way through this book, I thought I had the ending all figured out. I was so wrong! I did not see that ending coming!! Don't pass on reading this book!!
