Newlywed London lawyer Lily Macdonalds best intentions land her in some of the worst predicaments in British author Corrys devilishly devious U.S. debut, in which almost no one proves totally trustworthy. For instance, Lilys generous impulse to befriend nine-year-old neighbor Carla Cavoletti, a bullied Italian immigrant with whose vulnerability she identifies, will eventually change the course of the lives of Lily and her artist husband, Ed, unfortunately not for the better. Similarly, Lilys drive to champion clients she views as underdogs, which stems in part from experiences with her autistic brother, blinds her to the fact that some are dangerously manipulative liars who actually belong behind bars. But well-meaning as Lily is, readers will discover she isnt above hiding some rather unsavory secrets of her own. As twisty as little Carlas glossy curls, which inspire Eds best work, this swiftly moving psychological thriller offers surprises right up to the finish.
