Playing Nice

What if you found out that your family isn’t yours at all? How far would you go to protect them? A gripping new psychological thriller from the bestselling author of The Girl Before. . . .

The day Pete Riley answers his front door to find a stranger standing there will lead to a nightmare that any parent would find unbearable.

Miles Lambert is the one giving Pete this news. Turns out Theo, Pete, and Maddies’ son is actually not their son at all. He belongs to the Lambert family and their son is actually Pete and Maddies.

Stunned and shell shocked, Pete and Maddie go along with Miles’ idea to sue the hospital as David, the other child will need life long care. And Miles is one pushy dude. He wants them to all get along and each get to know their own child. Or does he? Why can’t they just swap the children back? What does Miles know that they don’t?

Miles is a gaslighter. He gaslights his own wife, who is terrified of him. When Pete and Maddie begin questioning Miles’s motives, he sues them, threatening to take both boys until someone steps up and does the right thing. No more nice guys here. Now they are going to find out who stole the baby and what horrible things are going on in that house!

Domestic Suspense at it’s best!
