In a secluded home on Long Island, a musician’s mysterious suicide haunts his terrified wife, in this novel by a New York Times–bestselling author.
In the wake of the shocking suicide of popular singer Ricky Sands, his wife and professional partner, Hollis Temple, wants only to escape the notoriety—and the relentless questions she can’t even begin to answer. Rescued from the press by family friend Alan Gordon, Hollis leaves Manhattan for Cold Spring Harbor on Long Island’s North Shore. In Windtop, the secluded country home of celebrated pianist Geneva Ames, Hollis hopes to come to terms with the tragedy that has changed her life.
But soon after arriving, Hollis hears the haunting strings of Ricky’s guitar serenading her from the dark and distant voices singing the love song she wrote for him. For Hollis, these refrains aren’t bringing back cherished memories; they’re filling her with fear. Could Alan and Geneva could be playing mind games? To find out why they’d want to twist her sanctuary into an inescapable trap, Hollis must delve into the secrets of her husband and her hosts—before the melodies of the past reach their terrifying crescendo.
