From the award-winning author of TROVE comes a haunting psychological thriller about the devastating power of secrets and lies.

Dr. Gregory Weber seems to have an enviable life. He's a renowned clinical psychologist residing in an elegant home in Cambridge, Massachusetts, with his wife, Liv, and their kids, Carrie and Petey. But Gregory is starting to feel disconnected from it all. His marriage is growing increasingly strained, his children are distant, and he can’t stop fixating on an unforgivable mistake he made when he was seventeen. Something no one else knows about.

So when an unscheduled client named Mira begins appearing in his office each week with knowledge about his past, Gregory becomes obsessed with her. Is she a new patient? A secret referral from a colleague? Someone connected to his teenage transgression?

As his attraction for Mira grows more intense with each session, his professional boundaries begin to dissolve. Soon Gregory allows himself to become the patient, desperate to uncover his connection to Mira and maybe find redemption for his troubled soul.

But who is this mysterious woman? And why has she chosen to visit him?

In searching for the answers, Gregory risks losing everything that matters: his career, his family, and his mind.

“What secrets would you protect above all else? That is the question at the center of Miller’s debut, Wednesdays At One. A taut psychological thriller about family, friendship, and the price we pay when our mistakes come back to haunt us, you will inhale it in one gulp.”

—Julie Clark, New York Times bestselling author of The Lies I Tell and The Last Flight

“In Wednesdays at One, Miller’s tautly crafted debut novel, Gregory’s buried crime literally begins to haunt and undo his present. But wasn’t Gregory’s seemingly tidy life already unraveling? In this riveting psychological thriller, Miller astutely explores the powerful tensions between the desire to be known and forgiven and the terror of being revealed.

—Victoria Redel, author of Before Everything

“A terrible secret harbored by a successful clinical psychologist propels this moving, eerie thriller. In rapturous prose, Miller captures the way truth can just as easily break us apart as heal our deepest wounds. Unputdownable.”
