In this "brilliant...deeply felt" (Stephen King) novel by
the New York Times bestselling author of the Chet and
Bernie mystery series, a deeply damaged female soldier home
from the war in Afghanistan becomes obsessed with finding a
missing girl, gains an unlikely ally in a stray dog, and
encounters new perils beyond the combat zone.
LeAnne Hogan went to Afghanistan as a rising star in the
military, and came back a much lesser person, mentally and
physically. Now missing an eye and with half her face badly
scarred, she can barely remember the disastrous desert
operation that almost killed her. She is confused, angry,
and suspects the fault is hers, even though nobody will come
out and say it.
Shattered by one last blowâ€”the sudden death of her hospital
roommate, Marciâ€”LeAnne finds herself on a fateful drive
across the country, reflecting on her past and seeing no
future. Her native land is now unfamiliar, recast in shadow
by her one good eye, her damaged psyche, her weakened body.
Arriving in the rain-soaked small town in Washington State
that Marci called home, she makes a troubling discovery:
Marciâ€™s eight-year-old daughter has vanished. When a stray
dogâ€”a powerful, dark, unreadable creature, no oneâ€™s idea of
a petâ€”seems to adopt LeAnne, a surprising connection is
formed and something shifts inside her. As she becomes
obsessed with finding Marciâ€™s daughter, LeAnne and her
inscrutable canine companion are drawn into danger as dark
and menacing as her last Afghan mission. This time she has a
strange but loyal fellow traveler protecting her blind side.
Enthralling, suspenseful, and psychologically nuanced,
The Right Side introduces one of the most
unforgettable protagonists in modern fiction: isolated,
broken, disillusionedâ€”yet still seeking redemption and
purpose. As Harlan Coben raves, this is "a great suspense
novel, and so much more. You won't forget the heroic LeAnne
Hoganâ€”and the same goes for her dog! Not to be missed."
