“A sharp, breathless thriller.” —Lisa Jackson, #1 New York Times
Julia Gooden remembers nothing about the worst night of her life. Thirty years ago, her beloved
nine-year-old brother Ben was abducted from the room they shared. No matter how hard she tries, there is only a black hole where Julia’s memories should be.
Now a crime reporter at a Detroit newspaper, Julia lives in terror that her brother’s abductor is coming back. Nowhere feels safe—not even the secluded lake town where she plans to raise her children. Then, on the anniversary of Ben’s disappearance, Julia’s deepest fears come true. Her two-year-old son is snatched from his bed.
No Rest For The Wicked
Convinced the crimes are related, Julia struggles to piece together her final day with Ben. Are the sudden reminders of him clues, or coincidence? Only one thing is certain: with every passing hour Julia comes closer to losing her son forever—and unearthing a battle more brutal, and personal, than she ever imagined.
“So visually written and chilling, with such real, believable characters and twists that shocked. A gripping story that I read in one night—I could not put it down.” —Debbie Howells, author of The Bones of You
