About the Book

“Do we ever really know our children? Amber Garza invites readers to untangle the web of a family just like yours—or are they? This thriller will have you triple-guessing yourself.” —Eliza Jane Brazier, author of If I Disappear

A mother questions everything she knows about her son when a local woman is found dead.

Valerie has been forgetting things. Her daughter worries about her being on her own in her big Victorian house—one rumored to be haunted after a tragedy decades earlier—and truth be told, she is a little lonely. With few options, she asks her adult son to move home, but it’s not quite the reunion she hoped for. Hudson is taciturn, moody and frequently gone.

The neighbors already hold a grudge against Hudson, and they aren’t happy about his return. When a young woman is found murdered a block away, suspicion falls on him immediately, without a shred of evidence. While Valerie fights to defend her son, she begins to wonder who she really invited into her home.

It’s a horrible thing for a mother to even think…but is it possible she’s enabled a monster? A monster she is living with, alone?

Critical Praise

"In true Amber Garza fashion, A MOTHER WOULD KNOW is a completely unputdownable nail-biter that had me on the edge of my seat from page one. In this first-rate domestic suspense, Garza probes how well we know the people closest to us -- not just our friends and family, but ourselves -- and turns a familiar suburban setting into a deliciously chilling landscape. Garza has once again proven she's a master of twisted relationships. This is a must-read book."
—Ashley Winstead, author of In My Dreams I Hold A Knife


"Do we ever really know our children? Amber Garza invites readers to untangle the web of a family just like yours—or are they? A MOTHER WOULD KNOW packs plenty of surprises. No other author can so successfully mine the horrors of suburban motherhood. This thriller will have you triple-guessing yourself."
—Eliza Jane Brazier, author of If I Disappear
