USA Today bestselling author Cate Holahan delivers her latest nail-biting thriller, perfect for fans of Ruth Ware and Lisa Jewell.
Imani Banks lives in a posh Brooklyn Heights neighborhood that has just been rocked to its core. An acclaimed movie director has been murdered, and his blond trophy wife—Imani’s closest friend—is missing. Their neighbors, along with the media, jump to the conclusion that Melissa Walker has killed her husband in a fit of rage and is on the run.
     Fortunately for the missing actress, Imani is a psychiatrist as well as a steadfast friend. She will never give up her search and is determined to prove Melissa’s innocence. It shouldn’t take a degree in human behavior to know that Melissa would never leave her daughter behind. 
     Recently, Imani and her chef husband rented some extra rooms in their house to a struggling waitress from his restaurant. Tonya Sayre has moved in with her teen daughter and the convenient timing and her suspicious behavior soon lead Imani to suspect that the true killer is living right under her own roof. Now all she has to do is prove it.



  • "The Darkness of Others is a deftly plotted, smartly observed page-turner that manages to thrill at the same time as capture the emotional chaos of the early pandemic years."
    Attica Locke, Edgar Award-winning author
  • "Cate Holahan just keeps getting better and better. Read her.” 
    Harlan Coben, #1 New York Times bestselling author
  • "A novel for our mid/post pandemic times, far enough removed from the initial panic to be less painful than it would have been a year ago, but recent enough to manifest the gut-wrenching anxiety of a world that no longer makes sense. Fans of tense, psychological dramas will not be disappointed."
  • "Fans of soapy domestic suspense will be well satisfied."
    Publishers Weekly on Her Three Lives
