The brilliant, fearless, deeply flawed Nora Watts—
introduced in the "utterly compelling" (Jeffery Deaver)
atmospheric thriller The Lost Ones—finds deadly trouble
as she searches for the truth about her late father in
this immersive thriller that moves from the hazy Canadian
Pacific Northwest to the gritty, hollowed streets of
Growing up, Nora Watts only knew one parent—her father.
When he killed himself, she denied her grief and carried
on with her life. Then a chance encounter with a veteran
who knew him raises disturbing questions Nora can’t
ignore—and dark emotions she can’t control. To make her
peace with the past, she has to confront it.
Finding the truth about her father’s life and his violent
death takes her from Vancouver to Detroit where Sam Watts
grew up, far away from his people and the place of his
birth. Thanks to a disastrous government policy starting
in the 1950s, thousands of Canadian native children like
Sam were adopted by American families. In the Motor City,
Nora discovers that the circumstances surrounding Sam’s
suicide are more unsettling than she’d imagined.
Yet no matter how far away Nora gets from Vancouver, she
can’t shake trouble. Back in the Pacific Northwest,
former police detective turned private investigator Jon
Brazuca is looking into the overdose death of a
billionaire’s mistress. His search uncovers a ruthless
opiate ring and a startling connection to Nora, the
infuriatingly distant woman he’d once tried to befriend.
He has no way to warn or protect her, because she’s
become a ghost, vanishing completely off the grid.
Focused on the mysterious events of her father’s past and
the clues they provide to her own fractured identity and
that of her estranged daughter, Nora may not be able to
see the danger heading her way until it’s too late. But
it’s not her father’s old ties that could get her killed—
it’s her own.
