One evening at a nightclub, Anna once again meets Styles and learns the complexities of her father’s life and the reasons for his disappearance.

“The Lying Game” is written by Ruth Ware. Fatima, Thea, Isa and Kate were best friends at a second-rate boarding school near the English Channel.

“A Stranger in the House” is by author Shari Lapena. You are home making dinner for your husband when you get the dreaded phone call. You race to a dark, deserted building and brace for the worst.
