A New York Times Bestseller
On a cool June morning, a woman walks her dog along a tidal estuary in the idyllic coastal village of Salten. The dog charges into the water and retrieves not a stick but, to her horror, something far more sinister. Atmospheric, twisty, and with just the right amount of chill to keep you wrong-footed, this is another unputdownable thriller from the Agatha Christie of our time.
The Thorndike Press Core Series is a blend of current bestsellers and well-reviewed fiction and nonfiction, including some international favorites. Aimed at pleasing a wide readership, this plan inlcudes New York Times bestsellers, award-winning titles, and works by highly acclaimed authors, with many Simultaneous Publications. Actual Large Print covers may be different from those shown.
“Ware masterfully harnesses the millhouse’s decrepit menace to create a slow-rising sense of foreboding, darkening Isa’s recollections of the weeks leading to Ambrose’s disappearance . . . with arguably her most complex, fully realized characters yet, this one may become her biggest hit yet.”— Booklist (starred)
“Ware's third outing is just as full of psychological suspense as her earlier books, but there is a quietness about this one, a slower unraveling of tension and fear, that elevates it above her others . . . Cancel your plans for the weekend when you sit down with this book, because you won't want to move until it's over.”— Kirkus Reviews (starred)
“[An] engrossing psychological thriller . . . Ware builds up a rock-solid cast of intriguing characters and spins a mystery that will keep readers turning pages to the end.”— Publishers Weekly
