Soon to be a major motion picture starring Scandal's Kerry Washington.

We all want different things. Francie wants to be the perfect mother. Nell wants to escape the past. Collette wants to spend more time with her family.

All Winnie wants is to have her baby back.

When Nell suggests a night out in Brooklyn to her new mums club, the others jump at the chance. But the evening takes a tragic turn when single mother Winnie learns that her six-week-old son Midas has been kidnapped.

As the investigation hits a dead end, Nell, Collette and Francie make it their mission to succeed where the police are failing and bring baby Midas home. But as Winnie and those around her come under scrutiny from the media, damaging secrets come to light and friendships are pushed to the limit.

Because people will do almost anything to protect the ones they love . . .

MEDIA REVIEWS
A most anticipated thriller of the season: Vanity Fair, Pop Sugar, Goodreads, The Cut | A New York Post "Must-Read" | A USA Today "Book You Won't Want to Miss"| An Indie Next Pick | A Library Reads Pick
I raced through THE PERFECT MOTHER, desperate to find out what would happen. Both the writing and the characterization are excellent, and it was so easy to identify with these women and the pressure they are under. I absolutely loved it - a true page turner! * B.A. Paris, bestselling author of The Breakdown and Behind Closed Doors *
THE PERFECT MOTHER is a gripping page turner that explores the pressures of modern motherhood, as well as a mother's absolute worst nightmare. At once wonderfully nuanced and compulsively readable, it keeps you guessing at every moment up until the very end. I could not be prouder to be bringing this thriller to the big screen. * Kerry Washington *
A riveting psychological thriller that takes a sharp, insightful look at motherhood, THE PERFECT MOTHER explores the pressures, the hopes, the fears, and the secrets between a group of friends who realize how little they know one another when a crisis strikes. A fast-paced, twisty, engrossing read - I loved it! * Megan Miranda, author of All the Missing Girls *
A captivating and deeply insightful page-turner, The Perfect Mother is both a riveting mystery and a satisfyingly sharp social commentary about what it means to be a good mother. * Kimberly McCreight, author of Reconstructing Amelia and Where They Found Her *
An electrifying thriller - and a subtle, savvy skewering of the endless expectations of modern motherhood. * People, Book of the Week *
Whip-smart.... Very much in the mold of recent best-sellers like The Girl on the Train and The Woman in the Window, but it's also a sharply drawn take on the cult of modern parenting and the particular pressure women face - from within and without - to pull it all off, flawlessly * Entertainment Weekly *
A desperate, thrilling mystery that you'll think you have all figured out - until you realize you don't * Marie Claire *
It's a novel written to champion women. It's a powerful reminder that the consequences of telling a person who she is can be deadly. The Perfect Mother is set to be one of the year's biggest crime novels, as well as a film starring Kerry Washington. I hope it keeps a whole nation of advice-givers awake all night. * Los Angeles Review of Books *
I was hooked... a page-turner... a rare and wonderful thing. * New York Times *
