Editorial Reviews

Review

A most anticipated thriller of the season: Vanity Fair, Pop Sugar, Goodreads, The Cut | A New York Post “Must-Read” | One of Vanity Fair’s Smartest and Most Innovative Thrillers of Summer | A USA Today “Book You Won’t  Want to Miss”| An Indie Next Pick | A Library Reads Pick ( )

“I was hooked ... and stayed up late to finish. What do you call a book like that? Oh yeah: a page turner. And it’s a rare and wonderful thing.” (New York Times Book Review)

“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 gripping page turner that explores the pressures of modern motherhood, as well as a mother’s absolute worst nightmare. I could not be prouder to be bringing this thriller to the big screen.” (Kerry Washington)

“A desperate, thrilling mystery that you’ll think you have all figured out – until you realize you don’t.” (Marie Claire)

“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 fresh addition to the psycho-thriller shelf.” (Washington Post, “6 Beach Reads That Will Bring You More Pleasure than Guilt”)

“Utterly page-turning.” (Parade)

“Molloy, a master of clever misdirection, deftly explores the expectations, insecurities, and endless judgement that accompany motherhood in this fast-paced thriller featuring a bevy of strong, smart, and realistically flawed women who, refreshingly, have each other’s backs when it counts the most. Mesmerizing.” (Kirkus Reviews (starred))

From the Back Cover

They call themselves the May Mothers—a group of new moms whose babies were born in the same month. Twice a week, they get together in Brooklyn’s Prospect Park for some much-needed adult time.

When the women go out for drinks at a hip neighborhood bar, they’re looking for a fun break from their daily routine. But on this hot Fourth of July night, something goes terrifyingly wrong: one of the babies is taken from his crib. Winnie, a single mom, was reluctant to leave six-week-old Midas with a babysitter, but her fellow May  Mothers insisted everything would be fine. Now he is missing. What follows is a heart-pounding race to find Midas, during which secrets are exposed, marriages are tested, and friendships are destroyed.

Thirteen days. An unexpected twist.
