After spending a year in prison, Ralph Fisher has explicit plans for his first night of freedom: tonight, someone will be held accountable. He goes to murderous lengths to obtain the address of his former wife—the woman he blames for his fate and against whom he has sworn vengeance. Determined to bring her to his idea of justice, Ralph’s next step is to travel from Florida’s sandy beaches to Dayton, Ohio, where his ex-wife is struggling to make ends meet on Mad River Road.

Also in Florida, Jamie Kellogg wakes from an agonizing nightmare of her mother’s funeral, and assesses her life: a pretty but unaccomplished twenty-nine-year-old woman in a dead-end job, with an ex-husband in Atlanta, a married lover in the hospital, and a virtual stranger in her bed. But this stranger is everything the previous men in her life weren’t: tender, attentive, and adventurous. After convincing Jamie to quit her miserable job and ditch her judgmental, perfectionist sister, he proposes a romantic getaway. While Jamie wonders if this thrilling man might finally be her Prince Charming, they plan a road trip to visit his son, who lives with his mother on a street called Mad River Road.…

    " The first book of Fieldings that I've read. It was good. She throws a couple of twists in to make it interesting. I bought another one of her books to read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Janice | 1/28/2014

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Joyce Gilham | 1/6/2014

    " This is well written and well developed with a surprise ending. keep in mind that this story is dark and there are some aspects of physical abuse as well as sexual. all in all it was a good read as the story became fast paced and i didnt want to put it down. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Sally | 12/15/2013

    " I have read many myteries by Joy Fielding and liked most of them. This one I did not, as I found the ending very anti-climatic. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Cinhon | 12/7/2013

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sharon | 10/22/2013

    " Not my favorite Joy Fielding novel. Good but not great. I think it had more potential. Subject matter was good.....I think it was the style of writing I didn't love. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Marie | 11/20/2012

    " Great Book !!! Loved this book ! I loved that one of the main characters is not your average goodie two shoes cookie cutter types. She is a flawed liar and thief. Loved the surprise twist at the end that I did not see coming. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Paulette | 11/14/2012

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Linette Blaszak | 11/28/2011

    " I love a good mystery novel ... although the graphic way the author described certain events in the book didn't sit well with me .. even after I finished the book I still felt bad for the one character! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Christine | 6/12/2011

    " It was a decent read but I had it figured out a third of the way into the book. I've either caught on to Joy Fieldings twists or else this one was pretty evident and didn't leave you wondering. Still worth the read but.... she's wrote better. "

    " The story was good I did want to see what happened in the end but the author could have cut down some detail on things that obviously were not going to be needed. For example the boy at school or the boss' info (she was only in the picture when needed). "
