Synopsis from Goodreads: My mother vanished ten years ago.

So did a quarter of a million dollars in cash.

Thief. Bitch. Criminal.

Now, she's back.

Her bones clothed in scarlet silk.

When socialite Nina Rai disappeared without a trace, everyone wrote it off as another trophy wife tired of her wealthy husband. But now her bones have turned up in the shadowed green of the forest that surrounds her elite neighborhood, a haven of privilege and secrets that's housed the same influential families for decades.

The rich live here, along with those whose job it is to make their lives easier. And somebody knows what happened to Nina one rainy night ten years ago. Her son Aarav heard a chilling scream that night, and he's determined to uncover the ugly truth that lives beneath the moneyed elegance...but no one is ready for the murderous secrets about to crawl out of the dark.

Even the dead aren't allowed to break the rules in this cul-de-sac.

My Review: I loved this thriller as much as I loved Singh's first foray into the genre. She writes characters that are flawed but so much fun to read. You don't like them exactly but you want to know what makes them tick. I loved Aarav, which is kind of amazing because I am not one for the unreliable narrator and he is certainly that. The setting in this book was so lush and well described that I felt as though I was there. I loved the details that were woven into the story and I really enjoyed unraveling the mystery and analyzing the myriad of suspects. This is a fantastic thriller and definitely worth the read!
