A novel in which a woman discovers the truth about the decades-old murder of her mother, and the killer who is still out there.
New York Times bestselling author CHRISTINA DODD builds worlds filled with suspense, romance and adventure and creates the most distinctive characters in fiction today. Her more than fifty novels include the "positively Hitchcockian" (Booklist) Virtue Falls series, and they have been translated into twenty-five languages, recorded on Books on Tape for the Blind, won Romance Writers of America's Golden Heart and RITA Awards, and been called the year's best by Library Journal. Dodd herself has been a clue in the Los Angeles Times crossword puzzle.
"Dodd slowly ratchets up the suspense level to the breaking point, while introducing readers to the diverse and quirky characters who live in the small town, and Virtue Falls's claustrophobic atmosphere adds to the menacing sense of danger. With this nail-biting book, RITA Award-winning Dodd shifts the dial of her writing more to the suspense side, but the novel's sexy romantic core will still please her longtime fans." --Booklist (starred review) "Megatalent Dodd returns with a truly stunning work of mystery, danger, and romance. Dodd enhances this new tale with a ghostly presence. Heroine Elizabeth Banner is brilliant, prickly, and damaged by tragedy, but also utterly compelling. Dodd has always been a terrific author, but she kicks it into a whole new realm with this amazing and terrifying novel!" --RT Book Reviews (a 2014 Paranormal Romantic Suspense nominee) "Intense and suspenseful, with touches of romance, humor and mysticism." --Kirkus Reviews "Edge of the seat suspense and fascinating premise. Couldn't put it down. My kind of thriller!" --Iris Johansen "Tight, edgy, and compelling, Virtue Falls redefines the romantic thriller. This is my favorite kind of suspense... I loved it. Fans of Nora Roberts will devour Virtue Falls." --Jayne Ann Krentz "Compulsively readable." --Elizabeth Lowell "Dodd writes with power and passion--and always leaves me satisfied!" --J.R. Ward "What an absolute thrill ride of a book! Sign me up for anything Christina Dodd writes." --Karen Robards
