Daniel had created The Big Red Book, a loving tribute to his wife, planned to be revealed on her birthday. But Daniel isn't around on that date.

Ruiz, for one, is convinced the pretty young would-be widow is guilty of the various pay-backs. Joe's not sure.Then Marnie's young son, who habitually plays with his imaginary friend in her wardrobe, vanishes. Oh, what to tell you next? Nothing! This carefully-constructed thriller will keep you breathless as the plot unfolds like a deadly flower. Best you read all of the, in order, as they build on one another. Of course, if one's all you have time for, this ought to be the psychological thriller you select. It's a 5, and then some.
