About the Book

Twenty years ago she ruined his life. Now she has the chance to save it...

'THE EX is everything a great mystery should be - intriguing, suspenseful, compelling, insightful, surprising, and thoroughly satisfying. A great read.' Chris Pavone, author of The Expats

In this breakout standalone thriller in the tradition of Gillian Flynn, William Landay and Paula Hawkins, a lawyer agrees to help an old boyfriend who has been accused of murder-but begins to suspect that she is the one being manipulated.

Widower Jack Harris has resisted the dating scene since the shooting of his wife by a fifteen-year-old boy three years ago. An early morning run along the Hudson River changes that when he spots a woman who eerily but thrillingly echoes his past. Eager to help Jack find love again, his best friend posts a "Missed Moment" item online and days later, a woman responds...

Olivia Randall is one of New York City's best criminal defense lawyers. When she gets the phone call informing her that her former fiancée, Jack Harris, has been arrested for a triple homicide there is no doubt in her mind as to his innocence. The only question is who would go to such great lengths to frame him - and why?

For Olivia, representing Jack is a way to make up for past regrets, and the hurt she caused him, but as the evidence against him mounts, she is forced to confront her doubts. The man she knew could not have done this. But what if she never really knew him?

- Chris Pavone, author of The Expats
“Riveting - a great plot and a cast of flawed yet sympathetic characters who insist on revealing only part of what we need to know will keep readers turning pages into the wee hours. Filled with twists and unexpected turns, THE EX is spellbinding from beginning to end. Alafair Burke is a new favorite author for me!”
