“Morgan is living the good life until the day she returns home to find her fiance mauled to death and her dogs covered in blood. She had rescued her dogs from a shelter, wanting to do something good, and now a man is dead. As time moves forward, the ground under Morgan shifts. She doesn't understand why her dogs, loving animals, would have done such a thing. And the victim is not all he seemed either -- his job, his home, nothing is as he said, and then there is the discovery of other fiancees. This edge-of-your-seat mystery has twists and turns that will keep you guessing. A.J. Rich is the pseudonym of award winners Jill Ciment and Amy Hempel, writing as a team.”

Description


"An unnerving, elegant page-turner" (Vanity Fair) of psychological suspense about a woman in an intense sexual relationship with a man who turns out to be a predator--by celebrated writers Amy Hempel and Jill Ciment writing as A.J. Rich.

Morgan, thirty, is completing her thesis on victim psychology and newly engaged to Bennett, a man more possessive than those she has dated in the past, but also more chivalrous--and the sex is hot. She returns from class one day to find Bennett brutally mauled to death, and her beloved dogs covered in blood.

When Morgan tries to locate Bennett's parents to tell them about their son's hideous death, she discovers that everything he has told her--where he was born, where he lives in Montreal, where he works--was a lie. He is not the man he said he was, and he had several fianc es, all believing the same promises he gave Morgan. And then, one by one, these other women are murdered. Morgan's research into Bennett has taken on new urgency: in order to stay alive, she must find out how an intelligent woman like herself, who studies predators, becomes a victim.

For readers of Girl on a Train and Luckiest Girl Alive, this "twisty, unsettling thriller" (The New York Times) is an "irresistible" (Vogue) collaboration between two outstanding writers. "The Hand That Feeds You goes from zero to terrifying in about five pages...Once this thriller gets its teeth into you, it doesn't let go" (The Tampa Bay Times).
