A single mother and lawyer, Iris has a colorful caseload, a young son with behavior issues, and a judgmental mother. She also has a brother -- shocking news she uncovers by accident. Why did her mother lie to her for her entire life? Why did she hide the existence of Ray Boelens from her? Curious about this sibling she has never known, Iris begins to search for long-buried truths. What she discovers surprises -- and horrifies -- her. Her older brother is autistic -- and in prison for brutally murdering his neighbor and her daughter. Visiting Ray, she meets a man who looks heartbreakingly like her own son. A man who is devoted to his tropical fish and who loves baking bread. A man whose naivete unnerves her. There is no question that Ray is odd and obsessive, unable to communicate like the rest of us. But is he really a killer?

A thriller about an attorney , Iris and her brother Ray, who never knew that the other existed. The story is told by both of them and keeps you intrigued as if enfolds. This is definitely a page turner that keeps you in its grasp until the very last page.

Yes another thriller with Girl in the title but a great read nonetheless. Told in two voices, you meet Ray and Iris and the novel slowly reveals how they know each other. I have read a lot of thrillers and it had me on the edge of my seat until the very last page.
