Mother May I

"Chilling, thought-provoking, and hauntingly written, Mother May I kept me on the edge of my seat with its breathless race against time."
—Megan Miranda, New York Times bestselling author of The Girl from Widow Hills

Revenge doesn’t wait for permission.

Bree Cabbat married into a family with wealth, power, and connections, and now has all a woman could ever dream of.

Until the day she awakens and sees an old woman peering into her bedroom window.

Later that day, she spies the old woman again, in the parking lot of her daugh­ters’ private school ... just minutes before Bree’s infant son, asleep in his car seat only a few feet away, vanishes. It happened so quickly—Bree looked away only for a second. There is a note left in his place, warning her that she is being is being watched; if she wants her baby back, she must not call the police or deviate in any way from the instructions that will follow.

To get her baby back, Bree must complete one small—but critical—task. It seems harmless enough, but her action comes with a devastating price, making her complicit in a tangled web of tragedy and shocking secrets that could destroy everything she loves. It is the beginning of an odyssey that will lead Bree to dangerous places, explosive confrontations, and chilling truths.

Bree will do whatever it takes to protect her family—but what if the cost tears their world apart.
