Suspense Psychological | Thriller
A dark, compulsively readable psychological suspense
debut, the first in a new series featuring the brilliant,
fearless, chaotic, and deeply flawed Nora Watts—a
character as heartbreakingly troubled, emotionally
complex, and irresistibly compelling as Stieg Larsson’s
Lisbeth Salander and Jo Nesbo’s Harry Hole.
It begins with a phone call that Nora Watts has dreaded
for fifteen years—since the day she gave her newborn
daughter up for adoption. Bonnie has vanished. The police
consider her a chronic runaway and aren’t looking, leaving
her desperate adoptive parents to reach out to her birth
mother as a last hope.
A biracial product of the foster system, transient,
homeless, scarred by a past filled with pain and violence,
Nora knows intimately what happens to vulnerable girls on
the streets. Caring despite herself, she sets out to find
Bonnie with her only companion, her mutt Whisper, knowing
she risks reopening wounds that have never really healed—
and plunging into the darkness with little but her
instincts and a freakish ability to detect truth from lies
to protect her.
The search uncovers a puzzling conspiracy that leads Nora
on a harrowing journey of deception and violence, from the
gloomy rain-soaked streets of Vancouver, to the icy white
mountains of the Canadian interior, to the beautiful and
dangerous island where she will face her most terrifying
demon. All to save a girl she wishes had never been born.
