'The kind of twisty, jet-fueled thriller that explodes on page one and has you happily abandoning work, sleep, and life as you race to the stunning end. Don't miss it!' - Lisa Gardner

This twisty new thriller from the author of No Bad Deed is perfect for fans of Lisa Gardner and Harlan Coben. Heather Chavez's Night of the Accident asks how far you would go to protect someone that you love, but have never been able to trust.

She was just a nosy woman who had spotted my license plate and then reported it to the police . . .
She didn't think I was a killer. There was no way she could've known about that.

A young girl is missing - last seen being pulled into a white car matching Frankie Barrera's registration plate. As it happened, Frankie was asleep at home with her son.

The only other person with the keys is Frankie's sister, Izzy. This isn't the first time Frankie's loyalty to Izzy has been tested: five years ago a frantic phone call led Frankie to the scene of a car accident - and a drunk and disorientated Izzy who couldn't remember a thing. Though Izzy and five friends partied that night, one girl was never seen again.

As the events of the past force the past to resurface, is either sister ready to confront what really happened that night?
