"Jackson follows her brilliantly unnerving Never Have I Ever with another battle of wits between a manipulative criminal and her victim. "

Jackson follows her brilliantly unnerving Never Have I Ever with another battle of wits between a manipulative criminal and her victim. When Bree’s baby son is abducted as she watches a school play rehearsal, the witch-like kidnapper tells her that she will see him again only if she drugs the drink of her lawyer husband’s partner at a party in Atlanta that evening. She complies with this and other demands, but meanwhile also uses a PI friend, Marshall, to try to locate her tormentor and puzzle out what she’s seeking vengeance for.
